During the last few days the SSA have been in discussion with Mansfield 103.2 to forge closer links between the 2 organisations.
103.2 have always shown great commitment to the supporters of Mansfield Town and the SSA not only the saturday match commentary but with Sportstalk on a friday.

Over recent weeks there has been much debate about the future of Sportstalk, however after a successful last couple of shows with Adam Sumerton at the helm its clear that there is a passion for Stags supporters voices to be heard.

The SSA are pleased to announce that we have linked up with 103.2 to try and reach out to a wider audience. Working closer together we hope to develop greater Stags community links for the benefit of Mansfield Town.

Tony Delahunty says " I have been massively impressed by the SSA and the work they have done on behalf of the supporters and Mansfield Town, indeed I have regularly found their Stagsnet website fascinating and sometimes highly amusing. I am delighted that we have found good common ground to work together for the greater good of Mansfield Town and the area as a whole. On behalf of everyone at 103.2 I would like to thank the SSA's committee for the interest they have shown"

Sportstalk is now to be a Monday and Friday evening show and we would encourage all of our members to take part in the debates and discussions. This is the only regular forum we have and its important that all of our voices are heard. Over the coming weeks we shall be talking with 103.2 to see how you the fans could be much more involved and to find ways of bringing an even greater amount of information to you all.

In a further development the SSA are also forging links with the Stags Community Trust and we will be providing information shortly of free courses available to all of our members. The courses range from First Aid to IT, from FA coaching certificates (Level 1) to Management of Basic Sports Injuries and Health and Safety . These courses can be from just a few hours to up to 10 three hour sessions. At the end you will have a recognised FA accredited or CLAIT qualifications.
