With a week to go until pre-season kicks off, we can reveal our coverage for the latest set of warm up matches plus the season ahead, a pre-season which is the toughest and most vital in our recent history.
After a course of meetings with several parties we have several ideas arranged, one in which I’d be continuing my voluntary work with the club so I must stress that, whilst I’m getting this out there for you to spread the word and to give you an idea of where to catch coverage, things are subject to change slightly so please keep your eyes on the website over the coming week.
For pre-season I’m delighted to confirm we will have coverage on the entire pre-season schedule for the second season running – Mansfield Matters will be brining you full commentary on ALL away games, Regular Updates from the two home fixtures and have something special in store for the double header when a side travels to Eastwood and to Stourbridge on July 31st.
At the moment the shows will air on Takeover Radio 106.9FM and via our MM-LIVE page – Joining me in the commentary box throughout pre-season will be Wayne Briggs who has agreed to re-join the MM Team, for those wondering about Scott, he’ll be welcome back anytime when he has free time having made the step up from youth team to senior team.
It may only be pre-season but as ever we’ll be finding lots to talk about, going live on air an hour before kick off for Saturday games and half an hour prior to kick off for midweek games, we’ll be mixing in a great blend of Stags chat with music, as ever you can get involved via facebook, twitter and text – Mansfield Matters is the show for the fans by the fans.

How to get rid of those dreadful ads!
I’m fully aware that the ads via our USTREAM platform are a pain in the backside and interrupt the broadcast far to often, unfortunately without paying for USTREAM PRO (Which we can’t afford) we can’t stop the ads from our end however there is a way around the issue.
If you install Google Chrome or FireFox there is an add on called ‘AdBlock’ – this removes adverts from all website you browse using Chrome/FireFox including embedded adverts which are used via USTREAM. Installing Chrome and AdBlock will take no more than five minutes, after doing so you will get coverage Ad free – Install Chrome & AdBlock here
Once again Mansfield Matters will return for the season, broadcasting full commentary on away games and regular updates on home fixtures – Wayne Briggs will join me for all home games plus the majority of away games – more details on the commentary team for the season coming soon.
Thanks for your continued support and I look forward to being back in the press box providing coverage on what could be a very successful season – listen out for our first show on Saturday 14th July, getting underway at 2pm – spread the word, Mansfield Matters is BACK!
