Stags fans urged to turn out for Rhys Day testimonial

Have your say

MANSFIELD Town boss Paul Cox is urging fans to turn out on Saturday (3pm) to see the current team take on the Stags Legends XI for Rhys Day’s testimonial game.

The Welsh centre half has had to retire this summer after a serious knee injury but will be given a fantastic send-off on Saturday when players of the calibre of Kevin Pilkington, Des Walker, Bobby Hassell, Jamie Clarke, Tom Naylor, Adam Eaton, Gary Silk, Jake Buxton, Alex John-Baptiste, Liam Lawrence, Lee Williamson, Craig Disley, Wayne Corden, Giles Coke, Richie Barker, Iyseden Christie, Chris Beardsley, Colin Larkin and Junior Mendes return.

“I hope supporters will come out in their droves and it will be a great day,” said Cox.

“I hope Rhys gets a great send-off. He has been great to work with and I hope it’s a brilliant afternoon.

“It is horrendous when players receive that kind of injury and I will help him out in any way I can. He’s a great lad.”

Admission is just £10 adults and £5 children.
