Stags to open pre-season schedule with Carlton clash

24 May 2016

Our first pre-season friendly prior to the 2016/17 campaign will be against Evo-Stik First Division South side Carlton Town on Saturday 09 July.

We enjoy a good relationship with the Millers and our pre-season match will take place alongside their 'beer, cider and sausage festival' on Friday 08 and Saturday 09 July. 

The match will kick-off at 4pm at the Bill Stokeld Stadium, Stoke Lane, Gedling. 

Carlton Town chairman Mick Garton is looking forward to welcoming the Stags to the Bill Stokeld Stadium after building a good relationship with the club, which has included taking some of the Stags' youngsters on loan.

“We have worked very closely with Mansfield this season on loan deals for mutual benefit and we are delighted Carlton and Mansfield fans can attend a game, hopefully in superb sunshine, and try out a cracking range of real ale on our sun-soaked terrace and enjoy some football in the process,” said Garton.

“We are delighted Adam (Murray) has followed up on his pledge to play the match on the first available Saturday and look forward to welcoming them to Stoke Lane.” 

Carlton manager Wayne Scott was equally delighted and added: “A trust has been developed with Mansfield that we will look to build on for the 2016/2017 campaign and it will be the perfect fixture to start our preparation for the new season.”
