Title winning captain Adam Murray is the latest name to join the panel for supporters led Q&A Night ‘Legends Live’ – taking place at the Sandy Pate Sports Bar on Friday 27th July 2018 at 8pm.
Murray first joined the Stags initially on loan from Derby County in 2002 as a youngster and returned twice as a player in separate spells, before making the transition into management following the departure of Paul Cox, to whom Murray was player-assistant as well as club captain.
The popular midfielder never hid his passion and love for the club, on and off the pitch, and often played through the pain barrier during his third spell with the Stags – during which he led the club out at Wembley Stadium in 2011 in the FA Trophy Final, reached the conference play-off semi-finals and then lifted the conference title – his face streaming with tears of raw joy.
Murray joins former striker Richie Barker on the panel of legends, answering questions and recalling memories all in the name of charity – as the evening, hosted by Mansfield Matters, will act as a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Society.
The evening will also include quizzes, stage entertainment and a prize raffle with funds raised going to the charity, it will be hosted by Mansfield Matters’ Craig Priest “I’m delighted that Adam has agreed to participate in the event, I have real respect for him as a person and I’m really looking forward to hearing his stories – as publically this will be the first time Adam will have spoken too and mixed with supporters since his spell as manager”
“I know Adam has returned to the One Call Stadium in a media capacity towards the back end of last season so it will be interesting to hear his take on how the Stags progress forward and how he found the murky world of management”
“I know a lot of supporter’s think very highly of ‘Muz’ and having him alongside Richie, will make for a really exciting and entertaining night for a truly wonderful cause”
The supporters led charity night is FREE for people to enter with donations encouraged on the door. It will take place on Friday 27th July 2018 in the Sandy Pate Sports Bar at the One Call Stadium and along with Richie and Adam, will see those who’ve participated in Episodes of the ‘A Trip Down Memory Lane’ Series also invited.
More names will be announced in due course.
