Generous Mansfield Town fans handed over a £10,000 donation to the club at this week’s hugely popular Evening With Steve Evans event.

The Stags Supporters Association’s (SSA) latest help for the Stags will go towards further improvements in the family area and physiotherapy department.

The decision of where to put the money to good use followed discussions with operations director Tina Broughton and stadium director Paul Broughton.

SSA chairman Dean Foulkes said: “SSA are thrilled with the massive progress that our club continue to make on and off the pitch.

“It’s important for SSA to carry on making financial contributions which we know the club appreciate.

“I would like to thank our hundreds of members who enable us to continue helping our club.”

The club’s family area in the Ian Greaves Stand (lower tier) has been widely praised since its launch two years ago. An adult and a child can purchase a family ticket for £18.

Tina Broughton said: “This is another very generous donation from the SSA.

“The club is hugely grateful to the SSA committee and its members for their steadfast support towards the club and their fundraising endeavours.

“Everybody knows this is a football club on the up and generous donations such as this will help us improve the club even further.

“I am particularly pleased that the SSA has chosen to contribute towards the family area, which will help us enhance the experience for families to even greater heights on a home matchday at the Stags.”
