Brierley Forest enjoy spot-kick fun
Brierley Forest Primary School is the latest school to have participated in our 50/50 penalty shoot-out fundraiser. The school received free football coaching sessions for every class and all pupils were given the opportunity to take part in the penalty shoot-out and help raise money for their school.
The children received great prizes such as certificates, medals, footballs, tickets to our home matches, and an autographed Stags shirt.
Pictured below are Ollie Palmer and Louis Briscoe, who presented the awards to the children.
Congratulations Joseph Whitaker!
Recently, we held the final of our Football League Girls Cup (Under 13s) which was contested by Joseph Whitaker School and Meden School.
It was a close-fought encounter with both sides coming close, but the game finished 0-0, which resulted in a penalty shoot-out.
Joseph Whitaker School emerged victorious and will now represent Mansfield Town in the area finals.
Congratulations from everyone at One Call Stadium.
Harry Davey and Campbell Griffin have both celebrated their birthdays with us in the past fortnight. Each youngster received a Mansfield Town shirt, along with an autographed football and certificate.

Our mascots were invited along as part of our ‘Widening The Net’ project, which works in partnership with Nottinghamshire Police and MPAC (Mansfield Partnership Against Crime).
The project gives youngsters aged between six and 16, the chance to participate in our programme. Youngsters are chosen due to either circumstances, cost or if they have come to attention of local PCSO's.
