Mansfield Town chief executive Carolyn Radford is to be a regular panellist on a new SKY TV sports chat show called Ballsy Women, due to air in late March.

The show is designed to give a platform to high profile women from the world of sport.

However, they will also be discussing men’s sport as it was felt that too often there had been a default segregation in terms of who debates sporting matters.

The show’s first guest will be Brendon Batson, wearing his FA hat to speak about black and ethnic minority under-representation in English coaching and management.
