Mansfield Town have signed former goal hero Matt Green.

The 28-year-old has signed a permanent deal to return to One Call Stadium and will spearhead the Stags’ strike-force in the 2015/16 campaign.

Green is fondly remembered by Stags’ supporters for his exploits in the club’s title-winning Conference Premier campaign two years ago.

The striker won the divisional ‘Golden Boot’ award after scoring 25 league goals.

He is perhaps best remembered for his late match-winning strike in the Stags’ nail-biting win over Hereford United in the penultimate game of the season.

Green then joined Birmingham City two years ago and scored two goals in a dozen appearances, before he was sidelined by an injury.

Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray said: “Both myself and the chairman have thought long and hard in order to beat off competition from League One and Championship clubs to capture the signature of Matt Green.

“It’s a statement of our intent going into next season and it’s great to have him back on board. I thank the chairman for making this happen.”
