(* Note from Martin - Maynard played in the Championship with West Ham, He did not play a Premier League game for them)

Starting his career at Crewe Alexandra - his hometown club - Maynard netted 35 goals in 67 matches for the Gresty Road club, before being transferred to Bristol City in July 2008 in a £2.25m deal.

The 32-year-old scored 46 goals in 131 appearances for Bristol before joining West Ham United for £1.65m in January 2012.

Maynard found the net on four occasions in 17 appearances with the Hammers, before being signed by Cardiff City for £2.5m.

Spells then followed at Wigan Athletic, MK Dons and Aberdeen before joining Bury last summer.

Maynard netted 22 times in 41 appearances for the Shakers last term, finishing the season as their top goalscorer.

Stags’ manager John Dempster said: “We are delighted to welcome Nicky to the football club. He comes with great experience and is of a real pedigree.

“Once the CEO [Carolyn Radford] finalised this deal with his representatives, I was impressed with the football questions Nicky asked about our new campaign.

“He is a goalscorer, team player and someone who our young attacking players will be able to learn from by watching and communicating with him.

“I would like to say thank you to our owners, who have yet again come up trumps with their support of me.”

Manager ‘extremely satisfied’ with new signing
mansfieldtown.net, Tues 2 July 2019

Stags’ manager John Dempster says that new signing Nicky Maynard displayed ‘outstanding’ finishing during this morning’s training session in Portugal, adding that he is ‘really looking forward’ to working with the striker.

The 32-year-old forward finalised his deal with the Stags after arriving in Amendoeira last night, and trained with his new team-mates for the first time this morning.

The Mansfield boss says that Maynard left a good impression on his fellow players following his first training session with the amber and blue.

“I’m extremely satisfied [with the signing of Nicky Maynard],” said John Dempster. “As soon as I spoke to him directly about the football side of things, he had some really interesting questions about how we’re going to play and our targets.

“I think he’s going to fit right in. He’s already trained this morning, and looking at his stats, you can clearly see he’s been a busy boy throughout the summer.

“He’s one of the fittest in the squad from the stats today and his finishing today was outstanding. I think the players were very impressed with his performance.

“The CEO [Carolyn Radford] had a big part in it, getting the deal over the line. My job was to sell the club to Nicky and talk to him about what I expect from a football point of view.

“I’m delighted to get him into our squad today. The way he performed last season, if you look at his record, his goal ratio was right up there with the best.

“The owners played a big part with how supportive they’ve been of me. This club does things properly, and people want to be a part of it.

“It was good to see Nicky when he arrived last night. The captain, Krystian Pearce, came to meet him, and we had a good chat.

“He’s looking forward to getting to know the players personally, and I’m really looking forward to working with him.

“He [Maynard] is a finisher. He’s very clever with his movement - I suppose you could describe him as a fox in the box.

“He will get on the end of things, whether that be good play from our players who are assisting him, or making the most of defenders’ mistakes.

“I looked at a lot of his goals from last season and they were from nothing. He’ll be a big part of our build-up play and the finishing phase, and he’ll also make goals from nothing.”

Delighted Mansfield Town win the race to sign goal ace Nicky Maynard
chad.co.uk, by JOHN LOMAS

Mansfield Town have won the race to sign Bury goal ace Nicky Maynard.

The striker, who has played Premier League football with Cardiff and West Ham, scored 22 goals for Bury last season as they finished runners-up to Lincoln City in Sky Bet League Two.

https://www.chad.co.uk/sport/football/delighted-mansfield-town-win-the-race-to-sign-goal-ace-nicky-maynard-1-9852148

With wages unpaid and the club in crisis, Maynard elected to leave Bury and was tipped to rejoin bis former Bury boss Ryan Lowe at Plymouth Argyle.

However, Stags have stepped in to sign the prolific goalscorer less than two weeks after signing Walsall top scorer Andy Cook.

Stags’ manager John Dempster said: “We are delighted to welcome Nicky to the football club. He comes with great experience and is of a real pedigree.

“Once the CEO (Carolyn Radford) finalised this deal with his representatives, I was impressed with the football questions Nicky asked about our new campaign.

“He is a goalscorer, team player and someone who our young attacking players will be able to learn from by watching and communicating with him.

“I would like to say thank you to our owners, who have yet again come up trumps with their support of me.”

Starting his career at home town club Crewe Alexandra, Maynard netted 35 goals in 67 matches for the Gresty Road club, before being transferred to Bristol City in July 2008 in a £2.25m deal.

The 32-year-old scored 46 goals in 131 appearances for the Robins before joining West Ham United for £1.65m in January 2012.

Maynard found the net on four occasions in 17 appearances with the Hammers, before being signed by Cardiff City for £2.5m.

Spells then followed at Wigan Athletic, MK Dons and Aberdeen before joining Bury last summer.

Maynard netted 22 times in 41 appearances for the Shakers last term, finishing the season as their top goalscorer.

Mansfield Town boss John Dempster already purring over new boy Nicky Maynard’s finishing prowess
chad.co.uk, by JOHN LOMAS

Mansfield Town boss John Dempster was left purring over new signing Nicky Maynard’s finishing after the former Bury star’s first training session.

The 32-year-old signed for Mansfield on Tuesday after flying out to their pre-season training camp in Portugal and Dempster was immediately impressed with his new acquisition.

“Nicky trained with us and, looking at his stats, he has clearly been a busy boy throughout the summer. He is one of the fittest in the squad from those stats.

https://www.chad.co.uk/sport/football/mansfield-town-boss-john-dempster-already-purring-over-new-boy-nicky-maynard-s-finishing-prowess-1-9854498

“Some of his finishing today was outstanding too and I think the players were very impressed by his first performance.

“If you look at his record he started the season a bit later in September, but his goal ratio was right up there with the best - and he is another player that wasn’t on penalties either.

“His goals were from open play and he will bring a lot to the table.

“He is a finisher. He has very clever movement and I suppose you could describe him as a fox in the box.

“Nicky will land on things whether we have created something or he is making the most of defenders’ mistakes. A lot of his goals last season were from nothing.”

With Plymouth and former Bury boss Ryan Lowe looking favourite to sign the much-wanted striker, Dempster smiled: “I am not sure how we’ve pulled it off really.

“I think the CEO had a big part in getting the deal over the line.

“My job really was to sell the club to Nicky and talk to him about what I expect from a football point of view.

“The owners have played a big part in how supportive they’ve been of me.

“The current squad is a big factor as well. Players look at the players we’ve got and want an opportunity to play alongside them to try to achieve our goal.

“This club does things properly and it is a big motivation for players. You look at our new training ground and we are out here in Portugal with unbelievable facilities. People want to be part if it.”

Maynard certainly arrived in Portugal in style after CEO Carolyn Radford picked him up from the airport in a Rolls Royce.

“I think he quite enjoyed the welcome and it was good to see him arrive,” smiled Dempster.

“I am extremely satisfied. It feels like weeks and weeks that I have been pursuing Nicky.

“The references he has had from people high up in the game have been outstanding and we are looking forward to working with him.

“He doesn’t know many of our players personally - it’s quite strange he hasn’t played with any of our current players as he has been around for a number of years at different clubs. But he is looking forward to getting to know them.

“As soon as I spoke to him directly about the football side of things and our new campaign, he asked me some really interesting questions about how we’re going to play, what our other targets were, and the current players in our squad, and I think he is going to fit right in.

Maynard arrives less than two weeks after Stags signed fellow prolific scorer Andy Cook from Walsall and both players are expected to figure in Saturday’s friendly against Swansea City.

New striker reveals reasons for joining the Stags
mansfieldtown.net, Wed 3 July 2019

New signing Nicky Maynard says his decision to join the Stags - amidst offers from ‘six or seven’ other clubs - boiled down to Mansfield’s squad, play-style and ambition.

The 32-year-old, who netted 22 goals for Bury last season as they were promoted from Sky Bet League Two, was announced as a Stags’ player on Tuesday morning.

The striker says that he had the pick of several clubs to sign for, yet opted to join John Dempster’s Mansfield after a conversation with the Stags’ boss.

“There were a few [clubs] after me - I had maybe six or seven contracts on the table,” revealed Maynard. “It [decision] was down to the team, the way they play, and their ambition.

“After speaking to the manager [John Dempster], he really sold it to me. After speaking to him, I couldn’t wait to get it all sorted.

https://www.mansfieldtown.net/news/2019/july/maynard-first-interview/

“During the off-season you get a lot of phone calls - agents calling you, managers ringing you. Sometimes it can get a bit tiring - people say what you want to hear on the phone, and after signing on the dotted line, things can change.

“But speaking to the manager [John Dempster], I didn’t feel that, and I can tell that he is a man of his word. I’m looking forward to working with him.

“It’s a new challenge. You go into a new team with expectations [of you], and it’s down to me to prove that those expectations are right.

“I’ll come in with a point to prove to the manager, the fans and my team-mates. I’m hoping that I’ll start off [the season] with a goal and kick on from there.”

Maynard went onto add that he was made to feel ‘wanted’ by Mansfield, which he says also influenced his decision to make the switch to One Call Stadium.

“I’m just glad to finally get it [deal] over the line,” he added. “I spoke to the manager [John Dempster] and I spoke to Pearcey [Krystian Pearce], the skipper, and they sold the club to me.

“From then on I couldn’t wait to come and meet the lads and start training, to be honest.

“Going back to last season, I felt that Mansfield were one of the better teams in the league.

“They [John Dempster and Pearce] spoke to me about how we’re looking to play this season and how they want me to be a part of it.

“The main thing is the ambition, which is to get out of the league. The gaffer spoke to me and made me feel wanted, and it’s nice to feel that as a footballer.

“It was nice to get picked up in a Rolls Royce [from Faro Airport by chief executive Carolyn Radford] - I was just expecting a taxi back to the hotel to be honest!”

On Tuesday morning, the former Cardiff and West Ham marksman trained for the first time with his new team-mates.

Maynard says that there is a ‘togetherness’ within the Mansfield squad, something which was vital to Bury’s promotion-winning success last term.

“As a whole, the togetherness [in the Mansfield squad] is there. Obviously there was the disappointment of last season, but they don’t look disheartened.

“They look like they have a mission to do this year and are eager to go that one step further.

“They made me feel welcome, and seeing them in training, they look very good as a team. I’m looking forward to the season ahead.

“Togetherness was massive [in promotion-winning season with Bury]. It was down to us to get over the line.

“You can have a talented squad, but that only gets you so far. The togetherness of a squad is one of the main ingredients of a promotion-winning side.”

Maynard also spoke of the type of striker he is and what the Mansfield faithful can expect from him on the pitch.

“On a whole, throughout my career, I like to think my goals to game ratio is pretty good. Given the opportunity to play regular football, I know I will score goals.

“I think at the start of my career, I was a scorer of great goals, but not a great goalscorer. Being in the game for a while now, I’ve got the knowhow of being in the right place at the right time.

“I just like to think I’m a goalscorer. I don’t care how the goals come, as long as I’m scoring goals.

“I’ll never drop my head - as long as I’m given the opportunity, I will give it my all.

“I used to be [a player that sets targets], but now I just go into every game expecting to get goals. I didn’t have targets last year, I just enjoyed my football and let the goals speak for themselves.

“I like to play with two [strikers], but as long as I’m in the team, I’ll always do my best.”

Togetherness as vital as talent in a promotion-winning squad says Mansfield Town new boy
chad.co.uk, by JOHN LOMAS

New Mansfield Town striker Nicky Maynard has given his first big interview since joining the club on Tuesday.

And the 32-year-old goalcorer insists togetherness is as important as talent in a promotion-winning squad.

The togetherness of a promotion-winning squad is as important as their footballing talent believes Mansfield Town new boy Nicky Maynard.

And he should know as he and his Bury team mates achieved promotion from League Two last season, despite wage payments being missed and the crisis club seemingly set to fold before the season ended.

Only Bury's financial state saw Maynard leave the club in May, but their loss is Mansfield's gain as the 22-goal star signed for Stags at their pre-season training camp in Portugal this week.

“You can have a talented squad football-wise, but it only gets you so far,” he said.

https://www.chad.co.uk/sport/football/togetherness-as-vital-as-talent-in-a-promotion-winning-squad-says-mansfield-town-new-boy-1-9856181

“The togetherness of a squad in one of the main ingredients for a promotion-winning side.

“Looking at my new team mates since I have been out here, as a whole the togetherness is there.

“Obviously they have had the disappointment of last season and just missing out. But they don't look disheartened.

“They look like they have a mission to complete this year and are eager to go that one step further.

“They have made me feel welcome and, watching them training, they do look very good as a team.”

Maynard spoke of the camaraderie that saw Bury home last season when they could have gone on strike instead.

“The togetherness was massive. Everyone knows about the off-the-field problems we had but we all knew we were in a position to get promoted,” he said.

“We didn't know what the future was going to be, but there are not many players throughout their career who can get promotions on their CV.

“We sat down, we had a talk, and we said it was down to us to just get it over the line and cross that bridge when we got to it at the end of the season.

“We started the season with an aim and we were within touching distance.

“We were in it together. If one person didn't want to play then none of us would play. If we all wanted to play then we'd all play together and run through a brick wall.”

A host of clubs were desperate to sign Maynard, but Mansfield won the race.

“Obviously I was glad to get it over the line - there was a lot of too-ing and fro-ing,” he said.

“I spoke to the manager (John Dempster) and I spoke to Pearcey (Krystian Pearce) the skipper and they obviously sold it to me. Then I couldn't wait to come and meet the lads and start training to be honest.

“Going back to last season I felt that Mansfield were one of the better teams in the league. They played some good football.

“My first home game for Bury was against them and, although I scored two goals, I found it tough against their centre halves.

“They told me the way they are looking to play this season and how they wanted me to be a part of it.

“The main thing is their ambition is to get out this league and the gaffer made me feel wanted. That's the main thing as a footballer. It's nice to feel wanted.”

Maynard was shocked to be met at the airport by club CEO Carolyn Radford and ferried in style to meet chairman John Radford in a Rolls Royce.

He smiled: “I was very surprised to be honest. As I got off the plane and went through the terminal the camera was in my face and Carolyn was there with my name on show.

“I was just expecting one person there to take me to the hotel to see the lads. It was unexpected, but it was enjoyable.

“I didn't know what to think so I just went with the flow. It was nice to get picked up in the Rolls - I was just expecting a taxi to the hotel and get to meet the chairman first and foremost, sign the papers, then go and meet the lads and the manager.”

Maynard was certainly in demand after leaving Bury.

“There were quite a few clubs after me and I had probably six, maybe seven contracts on the table,” he said.

“So it was down the team, the way they play, their ambition, and their location.
“I am a family man myself, so the most important thing was to be able to go home every night and see the missus and the kids.

“My kids play football week nights as well. So if I went somewhere that I was unable to get home from, then my missus would have had a lot on her plate and found it hard.

“Maybe the kids might not have been able to go to training sometimes and I feel they are now at an age where I don't want to be the reason why they are not going to be able to see how far they can go in football.

“That was one of the main things. Then, after speaking to the manager and the skipper, I couldn't wait to get it all sorted.”

He added: “I think it will take me just over an hour to get into Mansfield from home, so that is do-able. Bury was just over an hour too, so I've done it before.

“I know a few of the lads commute from Birmingham taking a similar time.

“I will judge it with the traffic over the first couple of weeks, but ideally I am hoping to be able to stay at home and travel up and down.”

Now he can concentrate on his football with the uncertainty gone.

“During the off season you get phone calls,” he said.

“You get agents ringing you and managers ringing you and people saying they can get you here and get you there.

“Sometimes it can get a bit tiring to be honest.

“People do say what you want to hear on the phone. But once you sign on the dotted line, things may change.

“Here, speaking to the manager, I thought it was a true manager's word and I am now looking forward to playing for Mansfield.”

After a nightmare season at Aberdeen, Maynard had little interest in his services last summer until he was rescued by Ryan Lowe at Bury, who also wanted him at his new club Plymouth next season.

“It was down to the manager, who is now down at Plymouth. I have got a lot of respect for him,” he said.

“The last time I struggled to get a club because of the previous season in Aberdeen, where I didn't play as many games.

“You are always judged on your previous season but I didn't get as many games as I would have liked, I was away from home and had to go six weeks without seeing my kids, which was hard, and I was not playing regularly.

“Last summer I trained at Crewe to keep fit as I have a lot of contacts there - it's where I started my career.

“I hoped I'd get a phone call - obviously not as many as I did this season - and I went to a few other clubs.

“Around the beginning of September I still didn't have a club. So I spoke to Lowey - I am friends with him and close with him - and asked if there was an opportunity to go in there and maybe get a contract - to come in for a few days and see how it is?

“I went in and signed a six month deal and, after four or five games, they extended it to the end of the season.”

He continued: “Lowey had faith in me.

“As a striker if you are not playing well in games you probably get hooked after an hour or so. But I think he had that faith that I would always pop up with a goal at some point.

“There were a lot of last minute goals. Even if I didn't play well in the game, I'd still pop up with an important late goal.

“As a striker you need that belief from the manager.

“You can't play well every game but, as a striker, you're always going to get that one chance if you're on there for the full 90 minutes.

“So he was very helpful in putting me in the position I am this summer. I am very grateful for that.

“I think he would have liked me to have gone to Plymouth.

“But, as I say, family comes first and it wasn't do-able.

“Speaking to the manager here, he seems to be on a similar wavelength to Lowey and I am looking forward to working with him.”

Maynard said his scoring record was damaged by his time at Aberdeen.

“My goals to games ratio is probably up there,” he said.

“At Aberdeen I only started four games. Otherwise I came off the bench for the last five or six minutes.

“When you look at the stats from a fan's point of view it's 21 appearances and no goals.

“As a striker that's not very good stats. But throughout my career as a whole my goals to games ratio is very good.

“Given the opportunity to play regular football I know I will score goals.”

He added: “At the start of my career I was a scorer of great goals but not a great goalscorer.

“But having now been in the game for a while, I have that know-how of getting in the right place at the right time in and around the box and that anticipation in the box.

“You can score from three or four yards out as you are in the right place at the right time.

“People put a tag on you of a fox in the box, but I would just like to think I am a goalscorer. I wouldn't like to put a tag on it.

“I don't care how the goals come as long as I score goals.

“I am a striker so I am in the team to score goals. If I don't score goals I am not the nicest person to speak to after games.

“But I will never drop my head. As long as I am given the opportunity I will give my all and I do believe that I will score more goals than I miss.”

Maynard no longer sets goal targets, instead simply enjoying his football and the goals that come his way.

“I used to set targets until I set one that didn't come to fruition,” he said.

“Now I just go into each game expecting to get goals and just enjoy my football without targets. I let my goals speak for themselves.”

On his style of play, he said: “I am not a 'lump it long and play off seconds' type of striker.

“I am not a big number nine. I am not one that is going to hold off these big defenders. I like to think I am bit cleverer than that upstairs.

“I like to play in a two - that's maybe how to get the best out of me - but as long as I am in the team I will always do my best.

“I like to be in a team that plays football, that plays through balls, likes to get down the sides, like to whip low crosses into the box.

“It will take this pre-season for me to get to know the lads and their strengths and them to know my strengths. “Hopefully then we can work in tandem and hopefully get Mansfield up into League One.”

He concluded: “I am excited. Every move is a new challenge.

“You go into a new team with these expectations and it's up to me to prove the expectations they have of me are right.

“I won't be going in there half-hearted. I have a point to prove to the fans, to the manager and to my team mates.

“They have brought me here for a reason and I hope to maybe start a good season with a goal in the first game and kick on from there.”

Mansfield Town take it to the next level with Rolls-Royce video for new signing Nicky Maynard
https://www.nottinghampost.com/sport/football/football-news/mansfield-town-take-next-level-3043974

His imminent signing had been announced with a glamorous tweet from a Portuguese beach.

But Mansfield Town really pulled out all the stops with the announcement that they had signed striker Nicky Maynard from Bury.

Chief executive Carolyn Radford - who featured in the original beach tweet - can be seen in the video driving her Rolls-Royce to pick up the new signing from Faro airport.

The striker - looking slightly bemused, it has to be said - is then taken in Carolyn's Roller back to the family villa where he meets husband and Stags chairman John Radford.

Then it's off through the villa for the official signing yesterday evening (Monday).

It's a long way from having the striker on the pitch holding up the team scarf for a quick snap.

LOMAS ON MANSFIELD TOWN: Hollywood-style Maynard signing video is the talk of the fans

https://www.chad.co.uk/sport/football/lomas-on-mansfield-town-hollywood-style-maynard-signing-video-is-the-talk-of-the-fans-1-9855106

Mansfield Town this week set a new standard in how to announce a new signing with a flash, colourful mini-movie that told the world they had signed free-scoring Nicky Maynard.

Having commanded over £7 million in fees during his career it was perhaps an apt Hollywood way to show off the newest and potentially brightest gem in the club's crown jewels for 2019/20.

It also highlighted how far clubs have come in how they announce a new face to the eager, waiting world - massively in my time in the job alone.

The video showed club CEO Carolyn Radford driving to the airport in Portugal to pick up the striker, waiting for him with his name brightly displayed on her tablet.

He then gets into her Rolls Royce and is whisked through the Portuguese night to their base where he meets chairman John Radford and their sons, all decked out in Mansfield Town kit.

Maynard is now working with the other players at their Portugal training camp and expected to feature in Saturday's friendly with Swansea City.

Most fans have loved the video, though one or two killjoys felt it was unnecessarily flash!

A club spokesman said: “We’re really pleased that the signing video of Nicky Maynard has had the impact intended.

“It has received over 350,000 views and continues to rise.

“The club decided to try a different approach to publicise the outstanding signing of Nicky Maynard whilst we are out here in Portugal for pre-season.

“The visuals of the Rolls Royce and the place where the owners are staying look good for camera, so we thought we would have a bit of fun with the filming. It’s light, harmless and fun.

“Nicky himself has already expressed his delight in the reception he was given at the airport by our chief executive.

“As Stags’ supporters are aware, the Radford family have injected millions of pounds into Mansfield Town and do great work locally with their charity The Radford Foundation.

“Many supporters of other clubs would love to have owners as supportive, resourceful and ambitious as ours. They deserve to enjoy their ownership both publicly and privately.”

Richie Wellens has missed out on signing proven goalscorers Nicky Maynard and Danny Mayor - Swindon Town's striker search continues
https://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/sport/17744639.richie-wellens-has-missed-out-on-signing-proven-goalscorers-nicky-maynard-and-danny-mayor-swindon-towns-striker-search-continues/

A BROWSE through social media this afternoon confirmed to Swindon Town manager Richie Wellens that striker Nicky Maynard had been poached by Mansfield Town.

Maynard met with Wellens a fortnight ago, but the financial package that the Town boss could offer wasn’t as strong as the Stags’ lure.

The same applies to Plymouth Argyle forward Danny Mayor, who followed Ryan Lowe to Devon amid financial woes for recently promoted Bury.

Adding a striker to his squad remains Wellens’ priority with less than five weeks remaining until Town face Scunthorpe on the opening day of the Football League season.

He is also in search of a winger, and a holding midfielder - who will fill the void left by Danny Rose, who has been ruled out of action until mid-August through injury.

Maynard’s arrival at Mansfield Town was announced via a video on social media that saw chief executive Carolyn Radford pick the 32-year-old up from Faro airport in Portugal.

Town’s 39-year-old saw the funny side of the situation.

“Myself picking him up from Manchester airport in the company car isn’t as glamorous,” said Wellens.

After an amazing achievement we all did last season, I have decided to play my football elsewhere next season. I would like to thank everyone @buryfcofficial and especially the fans for giving me the opportunity to play regular football and more importantly enjoy it again. The set of lads has been one of the best bunch I have worked with and the togetherness showed in the end anything is possible. It’s hard to leave a team that has just been promoted but off the field problems have left me with no alternative but to do what is right for me and my family. I really do hope @buryfcofficial get sorted sooner rather than later and give the fans some more excitement this season. #UTS
