Apologies to Kevin Kent for under recording his transfer fee at £80,000. I can't remember where I took that figure from. Jack Retter and Paul Taylor's History of Mansfield Town says he was sold to Port Vale for £110,000 but I have double checked this against the Chad articles and programmes and there is an article in the programme for the Stoke City game from March 1991 which states the club had rejected a £100,000 offer for Kevin from Reading who were managed by Ian Porterfield. There is then a later article in the Chad which states that Reading had offered £150,000 but the Stags had sold him instead to Port Vale for a substantial fee plus Gary Ford. I'll record his transfer as £150,000 (£110,000 + Gary Ford).
Gary Ford turned out to be a key player for the Stags and helped us win promotion back to Division 3 the following season. It also moves Kevin higher up the list.
A £150,000 transfer fee in 1991 would now be £325,000 according to the Bank of England Inflation Calculator.
