19 June 2017

The 2017/18 season is fast-approaching and there are some key dates for supporters to be aware of ahead of the Sky Bet League Two campaign.

Stags have made 12 new signings thus far as boss Steve Evans pieces together a squad capable of challenging for promotion. 

The first date for the diary is Wednesday 21 June when the fixtures for next season will be announced.

We will exclusively publish Stags' fixtures on mansfieldtown.net at 9am so our supporters can start planning their away days for next season! 

The players will report back for pre-season on Thursday 29 June when boss Steve Evans and his coaching staff will put the squad through a rigourous fitness testing programme.

Just a few days later, the squad will jet off to Malta for a pre-season tour from Monday 03 July to Monday 10 July.

The players will train in the Mediterranean heat as they improve their fitness ahead of the new season. The club is finalising its schedule for the pre-season trip to Malta and will announce further details in due course.
