World's media descend on Mansfield

4 January 2013


Journalists and media organisations from across the world descended on One Call Stadium yesterday, as the build-up towards our FA Cup Third Round showdown with Liverpool continued. 

Boss Paul Cox captured the imagination of those who will be hoping we can pull off a romantic cup shock this weekend, by revealing that he is due to tie-the-knot with his long-term partner today. 

Among those present at his pre-match press conference, which was held in the Kevin Bird Suite, were tabloid newspapers such as The Sun, The Daily Mail and The Mirror. 

Sky Sports, ESPN and BBC Sport, amongst others, were also present to quiz our boss as he begins final preparations ahead of the eagerly-anticipated tie against Brendan Rodgers’ multi-million pound stars. 

Goalkeeper Alan Marriott, together with winger Louis Briscoe and defender John Dempster, also fielded questions from the assembled media, before they were filmed for various TV pieces. 

Later in the day, Mark Clemmit visited the ground along with the BBC’s Football Focus team to film a feature that is due to be shown in their programme this weekend. 

On Sunday, several more members from both the national and international press will be at One Call Stadium for our Third Round tie against the five-time European Cup winners. 

Both BBC Radio 5 Live and Talksport are to provide full match commentary, with famous faces who will be in attendance on the day, set to include John Barnes, Jan Molby, Gordon Strachan and Kevin Keegan.
