Radford’s Delighted to Complete Managerial Appointment

Stags chairman John Radford and CEO Carolyn Radford say they are delighted to complete the appointment of new manager David Flitcroft, after agreeing a compensation package for him and new assistant, Ben Futcher.

Speaking at yesterday’s press conference, Mr Radford said “He (Flitcroft) was our number one target and to be able to get him in time for the next training session was a fantastic move, as Carolyn (Radford, CEO) says – we’ve not slept these past two days – you wouldn’t believe the amount of work you have to put in!”

The Stags were forced to search for a new boss on Tuesday when then manager Steve Evans and assistant Paul Raynor handed in their resignations – opting to join league one Peterborough United less than 24 hours later.

During his tenure at Mansfield, Evans was linked with a number a jobs including Swindon, who then opted to appoint Flitcroft after the Stags board rebuffed the approach for the scot – Mrs Radford said “It’s funny how things go around! It’s football and as I’ve been going along my journey within the game I just think it’s a very ruthless business – Swindon are in a great position and we wish them all the best, they’ve been so professional”

“As always we have the best fans – John and I really, really need your support – it’s vital now, it’s a horrible thing to come so close to the end of the season when we are in such a crucial position, the players are going to need you to get out and really support us”

The Stags are set to face a trip to Stevenage tomorrow, however that’s subject to a pitch inspection, as Flitcroft’s tenure gets underway
