Adam Murray lifting the BSBP Trophy above his head is a moment we'll never forget as Stags made it back to the Football League yesterday. Here at Mansfield Matters we'd like to thank the chairman John Radford for showing patience in Paul Cox when some called for his head. We extend our thanks to Paul, his coaching staff and players also, for delivering the goods and making our dreams come true.
Over the next few days we'll look back on that magnificent day and reveal the full story as Mansfield Town went into the unknown. However right now, as creator of Mansfield Matters I'd like to extend my personal thanks to a few people that have made this journey unforgettable.
First and foremost I'd like to thank my partner, Emily Sykes. Her expert eye for design has taken this website to the next level whilst her passion for Stags has made each and every game that bit more enjoyable. It's because of her we have added such features as the team sheets and numerous banners which have appeared throughout the season, and, if it wasn't for her, there wouldn't be as much detail in every blog or report.
Next i'd like to extend my thanks and appreciation to those who have joined me in the commentary box this term, Scott Rogers, Martin Shaw & Stephen Thirkill - your knowledge, passion and enthusiasm has been evident and has made the show a more enjoyable listen.
John Wilkinson at Takeover Radio 106.9FM deserves a mention for getting us out on FM every week, as do all the Takeover volunteers who willingly give up their spare time.
To my dad and to Ems family who have supported me, and the show through out the season - even during the times when it's been easy to say 'enough's enough'.
Thanks too to all the clubs which have made us welcome and all the journalists who've helped with line-ups etc.
Finally my thanks goes out to each & everyone of YOU - for listening to the show, reading our blogs/reports and for generally spreading the word about Mansfield Matters. This whole premise is nothing without you. Thanks for following the journey with us, stayed tuned for lots of exciting things and features over the next few weeks.
From pre-season until the end, this is Mansfield Matters, for the fans by the fans - See you in league two!
