Stags fans will now have to wait until "after the third weekend in May" to hear who will be staying at the club. Before the game Keith Haslam said that he expected “3, 4 or 5 players to be leaving the club” and that he and Curle had already held preliminary talks to discuss the budget for next season.

The following first-team players are out of contract at the end of the season:

Matt Gadsby
Andy White
Danny Bacon
Scott Sellars
Keith Welch

As noted in yesterday's Stagsnet match report, manager Curle told Mansfield 103.2 that Iyseden Christie was absent yesterday due to a “situation that will remain within the football club”. If one is looking for any hints from the team chosen yesterday towards next season's squad, this might be the main one. Another would probably be that Matt Gadsby didn't even makes the subs bench.

One player definitely leaving is Scott Sellars, who has announced his retirement from the game.
