Pym salutes Stags' fans

24 April 2023

Mansfield Town goalkeeper Christy Pym has thanked fans for their ‘excellent’ support towards him and the players so far this season.

The 28-year-old joined the club on loan from Peterborough United in the last summer and has made 42 appearances for Nigel Clough’s side so far this term.

Speaking on his spell at the Stags, Christy said at a news conference this afternoon: “I’ve enjoyed playing [here].

“I’ve enjoyed being with the lads and the staff and the fans have been excellent as well with me, which is good.

“It’ll be a disappointing season if we don’t get over the line.”

Stags’ first-choice ‘keeper, who turned 28-years-old today, was in buoyant mood when asked about our pivotal 1-0 victory over Stevenage on Saturday: “[It’s been a] very good [weekend]. 

“[We got the] three points [which] was the main thing and a clean sheet.

“I think Steve Evans’ teams are known for being that sort of way [that they played]. You know what’s going to come and I think this time in the season it’s all about results.

“It’s not about pretty football, it's about winning games and putting your body on the line and the lads did that really well on Saturday.

“The centre-halves and all the lads in front of me dealt with it [the pressure] really well.”

The Stags made two January defensive acquisitions, right-back Callum Johnson and centre-back Alfie Kilgour.

And speaking about the newest faces to his defensive line, he said: “I haven’t had a lot of time with Cal but he’s been brilliant. He’s a great lad as well. He’s been a nice addition.

“Alfie [Kilgour] is a proper defender who wants to get his body in the way. He just wants to defend and keep clean sheets so that’s nice.”
