Martin Pemberton has refused the Stags offer of a new contract and signed for Stockport county according to Teamtalk.

Mansfield Town defender Martin Pemberton has made the switch to Edgeley Park to join County on a free transfer.
Pemberton was one of a number of out-of-contract players who had been offered new deals by the Third Division club.
However, the former Hartlepool man, a £10,000 capture from hometown club Bradford Park Avenue of the Unibond League in August 2000, has opted instead to sign for The Hatters.

From Stockports Official site:

HOURS before completing the signing of Ricky Lambert Carlton Palmer made his first close-season capture when he persuaded Martin Pemberton to leave newly-promoted Mansfield Town for Edgeley Park.
The 26-year-old left-sided defender has agreed a three-year contract after leaving Field Mill on a Bosman free.

Pemberton started his career at Oldham Athletic making five appearances over three seasons before joining Doncaster Rovers in 1996.

Moves to Scunthorpe and Hartlepool followed before he dropped out of League football to team-up with Bradford Park Avenue.

It was with his home-city club that he came to the Stags' attention who brought him back into the full-time ranks in July 2000.

This term he has played a key role in Town's successful promotion push, playing in 38 of Mansfield's 46 games, scoring four goals.
