Chairman targets automatic promotion after meeting with manager

9 May 2017

Passionate Stags' chairman John Radford says that he, along with manager Steve Evans and CEO Carolyn Radford are already preparing for a serious promotion challenge next season.

Mr Radford spoke to this afternoon after meeting with manager Steve Evans at his home last night.

“Our meeting went very well as expected," said Mr Radford.

“Steve and I spoke at great length about our plans and ambitions for next season. 

“We are targeting automatic promotion, and as I said in my address to our supporters on Sunday evening, Steve will have my full backing to do what is required to give us the best possible chance of delivering promotion to League One.

“Steve was in buoyant mood, great spirits and typically passionate and determined as we spoke about our plans to make the Stags bigger, better and stronger. 

“Steve has a series of meetings tomorrow (Wednesday) with current players and our retained list will be announced soon after those meetings have been conducted.

“It’s important that our work now begins ahead of next season. We have agreed on the list of player targets and our supporters should expect an exciting close/pre-season.

“Our business will be conducted in a professional manner and we will continue the club’s policy of announcing our incomings/outgoings through the club’s official communication channels.

“Our work for 2017-18 starts immediately and I am already filled with excitement for next season.

“It is important that our crowds continue to increase at One Call Stadium next season. 

“Season ticket prices will be announced in the coming days and I would encourage supporters both old and new to purchase as soon as is possible.

“We are a club on the up and I, along with Steve and Carolyn, am determined to make 2017-18 a season to remember for both the football club and the town.”
