Williams signs new two year deal
CHAD.co.uk, 02 July 2009
Fans' favourite Ryan Williams has agreed to sign a new two year contract which will keep him at Field Mill until May 2011.


The diminutive winger joined the Stags in February this year after leaving ex-Blue Square Premier club Weymouth.

The 30-year-old played only 14 times afterhis arrival, but still managed to pick up an end of term award for 'Player of the Season' from local newspaper, The Observer.

Speaking to http://www.mansfieldtown.net boss David Holdsworth said: "I am delighted with Ryan and I feel we have a very accomplished player. The qualities the little man brings to us are invaluable.

"I felt it was necessary to offer him the security of a two year deal.

"He is delighted to remain here, as am I. We look forward to him scoring lots of goals and deliver plenty of crosses," he added.

Meanwhile, Ryan told http://www.mansfieldtown.net this morning that he intends to finish his playing days at Field Mill.

NATHAN Arnold has been told he has no future at Mansfield Town, manager David Holdsworth confirmed today.


The 21-year-old right-winger was put on the transfer list in the second half of last season after rejecting a new contract.
His deal ran out soon after the end of the season and he has been free to talk to other clubs.
Holdsworth invited Arnold to return to pre-season training if he wanted to fight for the opportunity to stay at Field Mill but that arrangement has clearly not worked out.
"I have explained to him that he won't have a squad number and he is no longer training with us," said Holdsworth.
"Anyone can have talent and promise but I only want people here who are focused and want to play for the right reasons."
Midfielder Curtis Shaw has also left by mutual consent.
