Stags in full control of their destiny as stadium dispute is resolved
mansfieldtown.net, Wednesday 13 March 2019

Mansfield Town owners John and Carolyn Radford are delighted to announce that late last week they issued the final cheque to Mr Keith Haslam under the terms of the deal agreed with him in March 2012 to purchase One Call Stadium.

Under the terms of the deal, payments were made each year, with the final payment issued to Mr Haslam last week.

The eagerly-awaited news means that the Stags are now fully in control of their own destiny as regards One Call Stadium.

Commenting on the deal chairman John Radford said: “When I did the deal with Keith I looked forward to this day and being able to announce that we were completely in control of our own destiny as regards One Call Stadium. This is great news for me and the club.


“As our fans will know, we now have nine games to take control of our own future and position in the league.

“I want this fabulous club to achieve automatic promotion and what better way to keep our automatic push rolling with three points on Monday against league leaders Lincoln.

“Although the match is on TV, I ask that the people of Mansfield come down to One Call Stadium to get the place rocking and show those watching on Sky Sports what a great club this is.

“We need the whole of Mansfield to get behind the club and I would ask as many as possible to get behind the team for the remaining nine games as we continue our exciting journey together.”

Thank you for your kind and encouraging comments to both Carolyn Radford and I since we released the news this week of the purchase of One Call Stadium, the football home to so many of us.

It has taken seven years to get to this stage where we can say, at last, that we are now fully in control of our destiny.

We will continue to do everything in our power to make our great club the best it has ever been, in all areas, so it not only survives in the future, but prospers long after our ownership.

Thank you to you again for your support. One of the best ways to celebrate this week's news is to help fill the One Call on Monday when we take on league leaders Lincoln, by spreading the word of the big match and to encourage people to come to the ground (as opposed to the easier option of watching it on tele) and aid our players with a deafening and positive atmosphere.

The easiest way to buy tickets is online via http://www.stagstickets.co.uk.

We'll keep moving forward, and together we will make our club bigger, better and stronger than ever before.
