Stags call for volunteers to help clear snow from One Call Stadium pitch for Nuneaton clash

Mansfield Town’s head groundsman Michael Merriman has issued a fresh appeal for volunteers as efforts to clear the snow from the pitch and surrounding areas begin in earnest tomorrow.

Willing volunteers are asked to bring sweeping brushes and wheelbarrows for a 9.15am start at One Call Stadium tomorrow morning (Monday).

Over four inches of snow currently covers the pitch, which along with public safety concerns, led to the postponement of yesterday’s home game to Macclesfield Town.

Stags are scheduled to face Nuneaton Town at home this Tuesday (7.45pm).

Meanwhile, Mansfield’s reserve match away at Gateshead, set to take place tomorrow, has also fallen victim to the weather.
