“Following a recent meeting SSA were impressed with the extensive improvement work taking place within the Ian Greaves Stand and the club’s major plans for the continued upgrading, growing and expansion of the commercial business.”
Operations director Tina Broughton said: “The club enjoys a superb relationship with the Stags Supporters Association and is hugely grateful for this latest donation.
