Mansfield Town will face local NCEL side Clipstone in a friendly at the Worksop Van Hire Stadium on Tuesday 28 November (7pm kick-off), we are pleased to announce.
As reported earlier this week, Stags' boss Steve Evans offered to take a Stags' XI to play the Northern Counties East League side after the Cobras' clubhouse was hit by vandals last weekend, causing thousands of pounds' worth of damage.
Catering equipment was damaged and the walls soiled with sauce on Saturday evening and the Cobras have since set up a crowdfunding page to help pay for the damage.
After seeing what had happened at the Worksop Van Hire Stadium, the gaffer contacted Clipstone vice-chairman Andy Sumner with the offer of a friendly to help raise funds for the restoration of their clubhouse.
"I wanted to help the people at Clipstone who have worked so hard to build their club," said boss Steve Evans.
"I know their great pride for their facilities at the Worksop Van Hire Stadium and it's important to the community of Mansfield that we help Clipstone in any way we can during this setback.
"These are Mansfield people who are badly affected by what took place at the weekend and I felt it only right that we help them restore their facilities as best they can."
Admission prices will be announced in due course.
