It was the day thousands of supporters descended on Wembley Stadium to watch Ian Greaves’ men beat Bristol City in a dramatic penalty shootout to lift the Freight Rover Trophy under the twin towers.

No one who was there will ever forget the scenes of jubilation when ice cool Tony Kenworthy slotted home the decisive spot kick to bring home the silverware for the Stags.

And the celebrations continued little more than 24 hours later when crowds of fans lined the streets of Mansfield to welcome home their heroes as they embarked on an open top bus parade of the town.
