MANSFIELD Town supporters are reminded to attend the public meeting on Monday night (7pm for a 7.30pm start at the Civic Centre) to find out how they can back new group Stags Fans United (SFU) - and its bid to support any new owners of the football club.

An email address has been set up for questions. It is questions@stagsfansunited.com

There is also a text number, which is 44 7786 200 350. All text messages must start with the letters SFU.

We will seek to produce the answers to questions on the various supporters web sites and CHAD website.

Supporters can question the new organisation during the meeting, as well as hear of its plans to raise a significant amount of money to help any suitable future owners of the Stags.

Questions can also be put ahead of the meeting via either e-mail or text. E-mail questions@stagsfansunited.com or text 44 7786 200 350. All text messages must start with the letters SFU.

Text questions can also be sent during the meeting at Mansfield Civic Centre, 7 for 7.30pm.

SFU has already called for fans to boycott season ticket sales and has also been backed by businesses in a commercial boycott of Field Mill - until controversial owner Keith Haslam completes his protracted sale of the club.

The new group says it wants to raise a large amount of money to give the fans a say in the future running of the club and help suitable future owners rebuild the club restore its Football League status. Now fans can back this appeal by donating money to a Trust, details of which will be given at the meeting.

A representative from Supporters Direct, Kevin Rye, will be at the meeting to tell fans how supporters have been able to buy into the running of football clubs elsewhere.

And Keri Ushwerwood from the trust which runs Notts County will also be speaking about how they have succeeded at Notts County, with the help of the local authority.

Mayor and current football club chairman Tony Egginton has also agreed to attend - and an invitation has been sent to Mansfield MP Alan Meale, but is thought that he will not be able to attend due to a previous engagement.
