As the current Mansfield Town side go through their pre-season preparations, today’s Stags Down The Years memory picture shows the 1964 squad also being put through their sweaty paces before the big kick-off.
Under boss Tommy Cummings, the squad went on to have a very successful 1964/65 season, building from their seventh place finish the year before to a final place of third in the old Division Three, pipped to promotion only by goal average in the final game of the season.
Stags ended up with an average of 1.557, but Bristol City stole the second spot with a figure of 1.673 – agony for the Stags.
Can you recognise any of the players or do you have any memories of that season.
