My first home game was against Reading in 1977, won 4-0 Kevin Randall scored all four.
My first official away game was Peterborough 1981, lost 1-0, in fact I've been there 8 times since and we have lost everyone of them. Though earlier that year i saw Mansfield lose 2-1 to Forest at the city ground in the county cup final. Not a real comp, in my eyes.
Unofficially, i saw the stags at Sutton Town on priestsic road i a pre-season friendly around 1977, we won 3-2
Exploring the world only to find all roads lead back to MANSFIELD not Rome

Still one of the strangest goals I've ever seen to this day. Being the 1991/1992 season as my first I was lucky enough it was a really good one and I've been hooked ever since.

I am waiting now to introduce my son to field mill/ one call, who ironically was born on Tuesday 27th September 2011 around 9-30pm, just as mansfield were playing and beating wrexham 3-1.
Anyone else think April 20th for the home game against wrexham is an omen?


I'm not 100% sure but I think the goal in the question was scored by Ian Stringfellow, who was in for Phil Stant, who was suspended for this game. What i do remember from that season, apart from the obvious promotion, was playing bloody Blackpool quite a few times!


It was definitely Wilko who got that goal. Wrexham free kick and on the edge of their own box and the defender stuck it straight through his own keepers legs and Wilko had a tap in......... but you are right that Stingy played that night too & I think he scored the first???



Oh yes, I remember now... Their defender played the ball back to his own keeper who was looking up field at the time and didn't see it coming.... Wilko simply ran up and calmly side footed the ball into the empty net!!!

My dad took me and my bro to a game probably around 97 time, shown up 5 mins after kick off, sure the bloke on door just pocketed a few quid and let us all in. Think it was against oxford but not 100%, won 1-0, Ben sedgemoor with a stunner.

Can't remember too much about the while experience but randomly remember being given a cadburys Creme egg at half time.
