Mansfield Town FC Player Profiles

Versatile defender Ritchie Sutton has made over 100 appearances since he joined us from Port Vale three years ago.

The 28-year-old, who can operate at full-back and in more central roles, has earned many plaudits from his fellow peers due to his steady, yet thoroughly consistent displays.

Sutton began his career in the youth ranks at Crewe Alexandra, but struggled to break into the first team at Gresty Road.

Instead, he spent time on loan at Leek Town and Stafford Rangers, eventually joining the latter during their brief stint in the Conference Premier.

After two years at Marston Road, Sutton moved to Northwich Victoria, before spending time on loan at FC Halifax Town in 2008/09.

Following a short spell at Nantwich Town, the full-back gained his first taste of Football League action as he made 13 appearances for Port Vale in 2010/11.

He joined us in June 2011 and has since made over 100 appearances, both at right-back and centre-back, but is still to score for the club.
