Mansfield Town chairman John Radford backs Carolyn Still after recent tabloid stories

SEVEN days on from the tabloid stories about the private life of new Mansfield Town chief executive officer Carolyn Still, Stags chairman John Radford today said she has ‘picked herself up’ and ‘was getting on with the job’.

The club was rocked by the national newspapers stories a week ago but Radford said: “I sat down and talked with her and she said there was no truth in them and that’s it.

“It is now a legal issue at the moment and has to be dealt with.

“When you appoint someone like Carolyn Still you are going to get a bit of pres as she doesn’t look like your normal COE at a football club.

“But she is very good at her job. She has held very high positions at multi million pond companies and she will be very effective for Mansfield Town Football Club.

“Obviously she was hurt by the stories but Carolyn has picked herself up and is getting on with the job.”

Radford has been in place as club chairman for a year this week and said by this time next year he hoped the club would be in the same position, but a league higher.

He said he continued to speak to landlord Keith Haslam twice a month and was confident that, if Paul Cox can achieve promotion on the field, he would sort out the ground issues to allow them to go up.
