In a joint statement, chairman and co-chairwoman John & Carolyn Radford said: ”Danny has served Mansfield Town Football Club admirably in the last four seasons and has been a real credit to himself and his family, on and off the field.

“In the current climate, it is uncommon for a player to be given the chance to move to a club in a higher division and it would have been incorrect of us to impede Danny’s opportunity of playing at a higher level.

“The transfer is good business for Mansfield Town Football Club, both now and futuristically.

“Danny leaves the club in high regard and we wish him and his family well.”

The club would like to place on record its gratitude to Danny for his endeavours at One Call Stadium during the past four years and wishes him every success in his future career.

DANNY ROSE IS A COBBLER!
Club complete signing of striker for an undisclosed fee
ntfc.co.uk, Fri 02 Oct 2020

Northampton Town have signed Mansfield Town striker Danny Rose for an undisclosed fee. Rose has signed a 2 year contract at the PTS Academy Stadium with the option for a third year.

The 26 year old Rose began his career with his hometown club of Barnsley, where he made 18 appearances, the majority of which came in the Championship, before he joined Bury on loan.

After a successful loan spell, he made the move to the Shakers permanent, scoring 20 times in a two year stay before moving to Mansfield Town in the summer of 2016.

He found the net 44 times for the Stags as he started 113 games.

His performances at Mansfield led to him becoming a fans favourite and he was named the players player of the season in 2017/18.

"We are adding a player to the squad who has scored consistently throughout his career so far and someone who can play in a number of positions across the forward line," said manager Keith Curle.

"He has a good work ethic and I like his character. He is a player who used to annoy the life out of me when he played against me and my teams so I am delighted he will be in our dressing room now! He is the sort of character you love to have on your side.

"Danny is a player who I think will build up a real rapport with the fans here as I know he did with the supporters at Mansfield.

"He is a striker at an excellent age with some good experience and that is a good fit for our squad.

“We also really appreciate what the board have done too as they committed to continue with our budget plans even through these uncertain times with crowds not allowed in to matches and they have backed this up with the signing of Danny.”

Mansfield 'couldn't impede' Rose's move to Cobblers
Stags insist striker's departure is 'good business' for the club

Mansfield Town chairmen John and Carolyn Radford admitted they couldn't stand in Danny Rose's way when the striker was offered the chance to join League One Northampton.

The 26-year-old ended his four-year stint at Mansfield when joining the Cobblers for an undisclosed fee this week. He has signed a two-year deal at the PTS with the option for a third.

In a joint statement, chairman and co-chairwoman John and Carolyn Radford said: ”Danny has served Mansfield Town Football Club admirably in the last four seasons and has been a real credit to himself and his family, on and off the field.

Assistant manager Joe Dunne told iFollow Stags, Thur 08 Oct 2020

“Danny [Rose] is obviously a club man and has been here for a period of time. He’s played, scored goals and had a good affinity with the crowd.

“But to anyone that understands the game, it doesn’t last forever. There will always be a time when you lose players and you gain players.

“Losing Danny was a disappointment for us - we offered him a contract in the situation to make him able to stay.

“But in this moment in time, with everything that is going on, players are always up there to be able to be transferred. The situation arose where he moved to Northampton.

“From a club point of view, it’s good business, from the player’s point of view, it’s up to League One.

“We initiated the hope of keeping him early in the pre-season, so we’re obviously disappointed to have lost him. But we move on quickly.”

ROSE CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED
Fri 02 Oct 2020
https://www.ntfc.co.uk/news/20202/october/rose_interview/

New signing Danny Rose is excited by the challenge of joining the Cobblers.

Rose joined Northampton Town from Mansfield Town for an undisclosed fee on Friday and said he is excited by the move to the PTS Academy Stadium.

"It is a great opportunity for me and a new challenge," he said. "I have been in League 2 for a few seasons and I am ambitious to play in League 1 and this move gives me that opportunity and I can't wait to get started.

"This is a good club with a good, effective squad and I can't wait to be part of it. The club has a clear identity and I think that will suit me. When I was speaking to the Gaffer here we spoke about that and we agreed on that and I am hoping I can chip in with a few goals to help the team.

"I saw how well Callum Morton did here last season. I remember watching the play offs and being really impressed with him and how the team adapted to suit his game to benefit both Callum and the team and to help get the best out of him. I am a slightly different type of player, I like to get in behind but I also like to think I am decent in the air too so hopefully I can help the squad here.

"There have been a few good battles between teams I have been in and teams that Keith Curle have managed over the last few seasons and I am glad that I made an impression on him! I try to be a nuisance for defenders and make my mark on a game.

"There are some really big clubs in League 1 and I am excited about some of the games we have. This is a very tough league and of course things will be a little different without fans but we will adjust and adapt to that and hopefully fans will be back to watch games sooner rather than later.

"I am joining a good squad and can't wait to get started and to help Northampton Town."

Morton's play-off performances persuaded Rose the Cobblers is the right club for him
Callum Morton's stunning performances in the play-offs persuaded Danny Rose that the Cobblers is the right club for him to join to further his career.

northamptonchron.co.uk, By Jeremy Casey, Fri 02 Oct 2020

The striker joined Town for an undisclosed fee from Sky Bet League Two outfit Mansfield on Friday, and he is looking forward to quickly making his mark in the claret and white.

Rose has a decent scoring record in his career, netting 66 goals in his 151 starts and 113 substitute appearances for Barsnley, Bury and the Stags, and last season he scored 12 times in 34 matches for Mansfield, before the season was brought to a premature end by the coronavirus pandemic.

But he believes he can improve those numbers, and he was impressed by what he saw from Morton in the play-offs.

The West Brom loanee netted twice in the semi-final win at Cheltenham Town and then once more against Exeter City at Wembley, and Rose is convinced that Keith Curle and the Cobblers squad played a major role in the young striker's development

"I saw how well Callum Morton did here last season," said Rose, who hasn't been involved in a match day squad at the Stags since their 4-0 Carabao Cup defeat at Preston on August 29.

"I remember watching the play offs and being really impressed with him and how the team adapted to suit his game to benefit both Callum and the team and to help get the best out of him.

"I am a slightly different type of player, I like to get in behind but I also like to think I am decent in the air too so hopefully I can help the squad here."

The 26-year-old is also excited at stepping back up to league one, and working with Cobblers boss Keith Curle.

Rose has played in the division before with Bury, and also started his career in the Championship with home town club Barnsley, and he said: "It is a great opportunity for me and a new challenge.

"I have been in league two for a few seasons and I am ambitious to play in league one, so this move gives me that opportunity and I can't wait to get started.

"This is a good club, is is a good, effective squad and I can't wait to be part of it. The club has a clear identity and I think that will suit me.

"When I was speaking to the gaffer here we spoke about that and we agreed on that and I am hoping I can chip in with a few goals to help the team."

And he added: "There are some really big clubs in league one and I am excited about some of the games we have.

"This is a very tough league and of course things will be a little different without fans but we will adjust and adapt to that and hopefully fans will be back to watch games sooner rather than later.

"I am joining a good squad and can't wait to get started and to help Northampton Town."

In his quotes about the signing of Rose, Town boss Curle said he was glad to be signing a player who 'used to annoy the life out of me when he played against me and my teams'.

As well as scoring from the penalty spot, Rose certainly rattled a few cages on his most recent performance against the Cobblers, the Stags' 2-1 win at the PTS in March, and he admits he likes to get fully involved.

"There have been a few good battles between teams I have been in and teams that Keith Curle have managed over the last few seasons and I am glad that I made an impression on him," said Rose.

"I do try to be a nuisance for defenders and make my mark on a game."
