New date for Macc game
mansfieldtown.net, 25th March 2013

Our match at home to Macclesfield Town has been re-arranged for Tuesday 09 April 2013.


The game was postponed on Saturday after more heavy snow had fallen over Mansfield.

Meanwhile, every effort is being made to ensure tomorrow night's match goes ahead at home to Nuneaton Town. Members of the Royal Air Force, along with our youth team and volunteers began to clear snow from the pitch at 9.15am this morning.

Cpl. Gary Whitworth of RAF Wittering told mansfieldtown.net: "“I've supported Mansfield all my life and don't want the weather to stop our chances of promotion.

“We've not got much on at the minute [work-wise] so I thought I'd ask a few of our lads to come and help clear the snow following the club's appeal, which they were happy to do.”
Volunteers needed Monday to clear snow
24th March 2013

Head Groundsman Michael Merriman has issued a fresh appeal for volunteers as efforts to clear the snow from the pitch and surrounding areas begin in earnest tomorrow.
Willing volunteers are asked to bring sweeping brushes and wheelbarrows for a 9.15am start at One Call Stadium tomorrow morning (Monday).
Over four inches of snow currently covers the pitch, which along with public safety concerns, led to the postponement of yesterday's home game to Macclesfield Town.
Stags are scheduled to face Nuneaton Town at home this Tuesday (7.45pm).
About 45% of the pitch was cleared on Sunday by volunteers, youth team players, Adam Murray himself, Mez the groundsman, and his groundstaff.
