Commercial manager appointed
Stags are hoping to step up their off-the-field activities next season with the appointment of Bob Gorrill as Commercial Manager at the club.
Stags have had no corporate facilities built yet since the new stadium went up and their only commercial activities were though part-time marketing manager Alan Prince.
But Gorrill has agreed to return to Field Mill nine years after he last did the job there following four-year spells with Northampton Town and then Oldham Athletic.
"The potential here is excellent and I still live in Sheffield which is very handy," he said.
"We have the scope to do a lot and we are hoping to have some hospitality facilities ready for the start of next season.
"And I believe there should be something happening at the ground every day of the week, not just matchdays, with conferences, seminars, weddings and so on."
Alan Prince will be leaving the club at the end of the season to join Nuneaton Borough as General Manager.
