Blue Square Premier club Mansfield have been deducted four points after they were found guilty of fielding ineligible players.

The Stags, whose 77-year stay in the Football League ended with relegation from League Two last season, were ruled to have committed the offence in their opening two matches this season.

Mansfield representatives met Football Conference officials at a hearing in Birmingham today.

Following a Football League investigation, the Nottinghamshire club were hit with the points penalty and will now decide whether to appeal against their punishment.

A club statement read: "Mansfield Town Football Club are extremely disappointed with the decision of the Football Conference.

"Following the decision to deduct four points, the club will take time to consider our available options."

West Ham: The Sequel this. Only they didn't let you off. Still, it'll save you the inevitable court case I suppose.

We sent the registration to the FA before the deadline (and so thought the deal was done) it was faxed and we have evidence our end of sending it.

The FA's fax machine didn't fax back a receipt (too busy? broken? god knows!)

Only after 2 games did the FA say they had not recieved a fax......

Hence we get 4 points........

It's harsh, but the guys running the club have only just taken over and the club was being run by a skeleton staff before hand. Mistakes get made I guess.... this has cost us 4 points and I fear we have another load to come too :(

Mansfield Town manager Billy McEwan says players and fans must be united to turn their current form around.

The Stags are 19th in the Blue Square Premier table and just two points off the relegation zone.

McEwan told BBC Radio Nottingham: "It's a very difficult period for the club at the minute but they're trying very hard to swing things around.

"They need everybody behind them, their team-mates and supporters - it's a test but I'm ready."

The Stags face promoting-chasing Kidderminster Harriers on Tuesday night.

A young Mansfield Town side were beaten in their latest pre-season friendly as they went down 3-0 at Alfreton.

The Stags, who drew with Leicester last week, were undone by goals from Josh Law, Ian Ross and Damien Reeves.

Trialist Ben Algar was given a run-out by manager David Holdsworth, before being substituted in the second-half.

Holdsworth told the club's website: "It wasn't good enough. I am disappointed with some of the performances and the players know why."

Mansfield chairman Andy Perry says the club will leave Field Mill if they cannot reach an agreement to buy it before the lease expires.

The Stags rent the ground from former chairman Keith Haslam, and although the deal still has nine years to run, they could opt out of the contract in 2013.

But Perry told BBC Radio Nottingham's Matchday: "If we can't do a deal we'll move. But we'd love to still be here.

"The history is here, the club's in the right place. It has lots going for it."

Mansfield Town have played at Field Mill since 1922.

But Perry said even though moving ground would be a massive wrench, they have to keep all their options open.

"We're in negotiations with the current owner but if that breaks down we'll have plenty of time," he added.

Blue Square Premier side Mansfield Town are offering fans the chance to pay whatever they want to see their home game against Gateshead on Saturday.

The club's owners thought up the scheme to boost the crowd and thank fans and the people of Mansfield for their support since the 2008 takeover.

"Let's pack the ground for this match and roar the team on to victory," said chairman Andrew Perry.

The scheme also applies to away fans at the 10,000-capacity Field Mill ground.

People will be able to turn up on the day and pay any amount to watch the game.

They will be able to sit where they want, except in the seats reserved for season-ticket holders.

The Stags are currently fourth in the table - 10 points behind leaders Stevenage - and their last home game drew an attendance of less than 3,000.

"This is a gesture to the whole town and outlying districts," added Perry, who clubbed together with fellow fans Andrew Saunders and Steve Middleton to buy out controversial owner Keith Haslam.

"The town has supported us since the takeover of the club and we are now giving something back to the community by allowing people to come to the match for a price which they decide.

"We want to make it as easy as possible for the people of Mansfield to get behind the manager and players in our bid for promotion."

Manager David Holdsworth added: "I think that it is important for the fans to give the players their support - win, lose or draw.

"We've only lost one game at home in a year so let's hope the town comes out to support the boys.

"Playing in front of a large crowd would be brilliant for the team."

The scheme, believed to be the first of its kind in English football, has even caught the attention of South America, with Brazilian newspaper O Globo carrying the story.

The initiative has drawn comparisons with a similar scheme from rock band Radiohead, who allowed punters to pay what they wanted to download their 2007 album In Rainbows.

Mansfield are keen their fans will not be left High and Dry on Saturday afternoon.

Blue Square Bet Premier side Mansfield Town have appointed the youngest chief executive in English football.

Carolyn Still, 29, has previously worked in the fashion industry for Bulgari and Gucci.

She succeeds Steve Barker, who has accepted a new position within chairman John Radford's company, One Call Group.

"It's a great privilege. I intend to add vibrancy and fresh ideas to our approach off the field," Still told the club website.

"Having attended numerous fundraising events, organised by the club's supporters' groups, I am well aware of the passion and enthusiasm that the fans have to see the Stags succeed.

"I want to wake sleeping fans with a lot of different initiatives by liaising with them and finding what they want.

"Much work has been done to develop relationships with key businesses in and around the area, and we must continue to work hard to ensure that our off-the-field commercial activity increases in an attempt to make the club self-sustainable."

Chief executive? Really? She looks like a C-list tabloid model.

'The chief executive of a non-league football club was arrested during an away match. Carolyn Still, 29, was held for using threatening words and behaviour during Mansfield Town's Blue Square Bet Premier play-off semi-final against York City on Wednesday night. It is understood she received a caution for her behaviour in Grosvenor Terrace, next to York's Bootham Crescent stadium.

'She became the youngest chief executive in English football when she was appointed by Mansfield last September. A spokesman for North Yorkshire police said: "A 29-year-old woman from Retford was arrested at 9pm on Wednesday 2 May 2012, on Grosvenor Terrace, York, for using threatening words and behaviour. She was given an adult caution before being released." Mansfield Town have declined to comment' - The Guardian.
