Shaw released by Stags
CHAD.co.uk, 07 July 2009
MIDFIELDER Curtis Shaw (22) has been released from Field Mil this afternoon by mutual consent.
Shaw, who joined in January from Ilkeston Town, made two starts and one substitute appearance for the first team towards the end of last season.
"When a club progressess, some players fall down the pecking order," manager David Holdsworth told mansfieldtown.net
"For different reasons which have to remain private we felt it best that Curtis moves on.
"I only want players at this Football Club who are 100 per cent focussed on Mansfield Town.
"If they are not then they will not remain here - and that applies to everyone. We do wish Curtis well in his future career," he added.
Double deal for Steelmen
07 July 2009, By John Smith
Corby Town boss Graham Drury was delighted to have finally got his man after striker Mark Stallard signed from Mansfield Town last night.
And, in a double move, Drury also brought in goalkeeper Ayden Duffy from Lincoln City.
Stallard, 34, was targeted by Drury towards the end of the last season as Corby chased the Southern League Premier Division title.
But at the time, the striker opted to stay with the Stags in the Blue Square Premier.
But now, with Corby in the Blue Square North, Stallard has agreed to drop a level and become part of the growing Steelmen strike contingent.
"I'm delighted to have finally brought Mark to the club because he's a quality player," said Drury.
"He's a great target man, his hold-up and link play is superb, but he also knows where the back of the net is and will score plenty of goals.
"He also brings really good experience from higher-level football and he's another good option for us within the squad."
Stallard enjoyed his best spells in the Football League with Wycombe Wanderers and Notts County, scoring 23 goals in 73 league games for the Chairboys and 66 in 201 in two spells for the Magpies.
He has made League appearances for Derby, Fulham, Preston, Bradford, Barnsley, Chesterfield and Shrewsbury among others and scored eight goals in 28 games for Mansfield last year.
