Mansfield Town chief executive officer Carolyn Radford will be a guest on BBC Question Time this Thursday, the club has announced.

David Dimbleby will chair the debate from St Albans, Hertfordshire and the BBC will announce its other panellists on Wednesday, May 2.

A Mansfield Town club spokesman said: “Carolyn has a great interest in politics at both local and national level, having studied it at university.

“She has showcased the club in a remarkable way in the national media – promoting its values and ambitions - and is widely seen as a pioneer in promoting the participation of women in football.

“Carolyn was proud to accept the invitation by the BBC to be one of their guests on the nation’s most watched political debate programme.”

Carolyn accepted the position of chief executive officer at Mansfield Town over five years ago when she was 29-years-old, becoming the youngest football CEO in the country.

During that time, she has cut expenditure and increased profits.

The show will air on Thursday from 10.45pm on BBC One.
