Mansfield Town FC Player Profiles

Versatile defender Ritchie Sutton has made over 100 appearances since joining 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. 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 had spells with Northwich Victoria, FC Halifax Town and Nantwich Town, before gaining his first taste of Football League action with Port Vale in 2010/11.

He joined us in June 2011 and has since made featured on over 100 occasions in all competitions, both at right-back and centre-back, but is still to get on the score-sheet for us.
