Cox credits players for award

1st April 2013
Boss Paul Cox has praised his players after scooping the prestigious Blue Square Bet Premier 'Manager of the Month' award for March.

Our team won all seven of their fixtures last month to move to within a single point of Kidderminster Harriers at the league summit.

Victories included a superb win over FA Trophy finalists Grimsby Town, a home thrashing of Stockport County and away successes at Woking, Forest Green Rovers and Tamworth.

Our boss said: “The credit needs to go to the players for the tremendous run that they have put together. They have put in some brave performances, so they deserve all the accolades.”

Mansfield Town boss Paul Cox has been named Blue Square Bet Premier Manager of the Month for March after winning all seven games in the month to put the club in title contention.


And the club, hoping to be plying their trade back in the Football League, have also announced plans to end cash on the turnstiles next season with savings for advance ticket purchases.

Supporters who purchase tickets for a home league game next season before a matchday can save £2 on their match ticket.

Admission on the day next year will be £20 adults, £15 concessions, £10 U10s and free for U6s. But you can save £2 on all those prices in advance.

The club recently revealed that there will be no cash turnstiles at One Call Stadium next season as all spectators must be in possession of a valid ticket before entering the ground. Allocated seating will also be introduced.

The team are currently experiencing an extraordinary run of results, having won 14 games from 15 matches, and the club have said that these new set of matchday admission prices will be implemented whichever division they are in next season.

In a joint statement, operations directors Paul and Tina Broughton said: “Supporters must now buy a ticket before entering the ground on a home match day.

“This will increase speed of access for supporters into One Call Stadium on a matchday. Waiting time, for tickets and entrance, will be cut dramatically, both at the ticket office and turnstiles.

“From a financial point of view, this move will provide big savings for us over the course of a season. It will allow us to gauge how many people are planning to come to the ground ahead of the match, and as a result, we will be able to order more precisely the amount of foods, staff and stewards needed.”

It is expected that the club will launch a facility for supporters to purchase tickets via the internet in advance of next season.

Additionally, ticket machines are expected to be installed outside One Call Stadium, where supporters can also purchase tickets.

The club are likely to announce season ticket prices before the end of the current league campaign.

Stags will be hoping for a bumper crowd as they look to equal the club's all-time winning run of 12 games at home to Gateshead tomorrow afternoon
