Evans celebrates one year in charge of Stags

16th November 2017

Mansfield Town manager Steve Evans is celebrating the first anniversary of taking charge of the Stags.

He was announced as the successor to Adam Murray on 16th November, 2016, and he says he has been pleased with the progress that has been made in the past twelve months.

After finishing in twelfth position last season in League Two, fourteen players were brought in by Evans whilst eleven left in a major overhaul.

And, as the new squad looks for more consistency, the Stags are currently twelfth and two points away from the play-off zone as they get ready for Saturday's home clash with Stevenage.

The match will be Evans' 48th league game in charge with a record so far of nineteen wins, fifteen draws and thirteen losses.

When asked to assess how things have gone, Evans told Mansfield 103.2 at Thursday's press conference: "People can judge. Is the playing squad better? Significantly. Is the management team better? Significantly. Is the support better? Significantly. Is the training ground better? Significantly.

"I remember coming here in the wet last year so even the weather is significantly better!

"So, we're really working hard to make sure the results are significantly better because ultimately that's why we're all here."

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Mansfield Town's Emirates FA Cup Second Round tie at home to Guiseley has been moved back a day to Sunday 3rd December at 2pm for TV coverage.

That is set to impact on their Checkatrade Trophy Second Round tie at Blackpool that is due to take place two days later.

It is thought that could now move back twenty-four hours to Wednesday or be delayed a week until Tuesday 12th December, subject to agreement with the home side.
