He will look to strengthen further the club’s community links within the local area, in conjunction with Mansfield Town Football in the Community.
“It’s an honour for me to join the board of directors at Mansfield Town Football Club,” said Mr. Brown.
“The club is in a brilliant place right now, with strong foundations for progress in every area.
“Everyone can see the work and investment from John & Carolyn Radford over the past decade, along with the development of the Academy and the club’s state-of-the-art training ground in Pleasley.
“Under Nigel, the first team are playing an attractive brand of football and this has been reflected in record breaking season ticket sales for the club this summer.
“Everything about Mansfield Town is heading in an upward trajectory.”
On developing the club’s relations within the local community, Mr. Brown added: “I look forward to working with Football in the Community to build upon the good work which they’re doing in Mansfield and surrounding areas.
