THIS week’s Chad Sport will be even bigger and better than before as we bring you a massive 14 pages of local sports new.

We have the latest news on Mansfield Town’s 3-1 victory over Hayes and Yeading which secured their place in the Blue Square Premier play-off places.

There is also a comprehensive round-up of the local football scene, including match reports from Teversal’s 2-2 draw with Bottesford and Shirebrook Town’s 2-0 defeat against Rossington Main.

Chad Sport also has a match report from Mansfield Rugby Club’s narrow win and a look at the start of the brand new cricket season.

And, if that isn’t enough sport, we also have four extra pages in our new monthly Sports Extra section.

Sports Extra features a wide range of features about the people and clubs making the news across the Mansfield and Ashfield sports scene.

In this week’s section we bring you the story of a 79 year-old referee who is still going strong in the Mansfield Chad Youth League after more than 2,110 games.

We also have a feature on George Clarke, who went from the Bolsover coalmines to become a Crystal Palace legend, and we take a look at Sutton Sting ice hockey club and Teversal FC as they look to take the next step on their respective developments.
