mansfieldtown.net, Thur 11 Jan 2024

Mansfield Town defender Aden Flint has extended his contract at One Call Stadium until the summer of 2025 (*), the club is delighted to announce.

Since signing last August, the 34-year-old has been an integral part of Stags’ defence, which currently boasts the best defensive record in Sky Bet League Two.

The colossal centre-half has been an ever-present for Mansfield in the league this season, helping the team to record 10 clean sheets.

Speaking to mansfieldtown.net, Aden said: “I’m delighted to be extending my stay at the Stags.

“I’m really enjoying it here and love everything about what this club represents.


“Since I arrived here, I’ve been made to feel very welcome by everyone at the club and I feel really settled.

“I’d like to express my thanks to the chairman, chief executive and the manager for extending my contract.

“There’s a great unity at this club and a real sense of togetherness and purpose in this squad. We’re determined to finish the job we’ve started for the club’s supporters and the people of Mansfield.”


(*) Nigel Clough on iFollow Stags, 15 Jan 2024:

option of a further year on Flint, "providing on certain things, with certain targets to be hit".

That would therefore go to summer 2026.


Nigel Clough said:
"I'm delighted that Aden will be staying at the club for at least the next 18 months.
"Since coming on at Crewe in the first match of the season, he has played in every league game for us.
"He's played a very important part in the progress we've made so far this season."
