Our Mansfield Town picture of the day shows club legend Ken Wagstaff in action.

Langwith-born Wagstaff scored 93 goals during 181 appearances at Field Mill between 1960 and 1964.

And that great form earned him a move to Hull Citym where he scored 173 times during 378 games, which spanned 12 memorable years.

In 1960, as a 17-year-old, Wagstaff was signed by Mansfield Town’s then-manager Raich Carter after playing in Mansfield’s Youth League.

Carter put him in the first team squad and he made his league debut on 30th August 1960.

In his first game with Mansfield’s first squad, the team beat Rochdale 2-1 with Wagstaff scoring both goals.

In 2000, club fans of both Mansfield Town and Hull City voted Wagstaff their club’s player of the century – the only player to be named by two football league clubs.
