Marriott to depart Mansfield Town

16 June 2014

Goalkeeper free to talk to other clubs having been unable to agree terms on a new contract.

Mansfield Town can confirm that the club has not agreed contract terms with goalkeeper Alan Marriott ahead of next season.

The 35-year-old, who made 201 league appearances for us, keeping 66 clean-sheets, is now free to talk to other clubs.

The news brings an end to a colourful five-and-a-half-year stay at One Call Stadium for Marriott, during which he established himself as our first-choice shot-stopper.

Marriott achieved many career firsts during his time with us – including playing at Wembley Stadium in the FA Trophy Final in May 2011 and winning promotion by way of the Conference Premier title in April 2013.

The Bedford-born custodian also scored the first goal in his career in April 2012, when his long downfield kick found the back of the net in a 2-0 televised victory over Wrexham.

Manager Paul Cox said: “Alan has been a tremendous servant to the club in the years that I’ve been here and I’d like to place on record my thanks to him for his efforts. 

“I wish him every success in the future.”

The club would like to place on record its thanks to Alan Marriott for his contributions during the last five-and-a-half years and we wish him every success in his future career.
