Ground Field Mill, Mansfield

Mansfield Town Football Club are a football club from the former mining town of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. They are nicknamed The Stags and play in their traditional colours of amber and blue. Mansfield Town was founded in 1897 under the name of Mansfield Wesleyans. Like many football clubs, their name derives from a local church, in this case the Wesleyan church on Preston Road. The present name was adopted by the club in the summer of 1910. By this time Mansfield had moved to their present home, Field Mill. After several attempts, Mansfield finally won election to the Football League in time for the 1931-32 season. Mansfield narrowly missed promotion to the Second Division in the 1964-65 season. Arguably the club's most famous moment came in 1969, when they beat West Ham United 3-0 in the FA Cup. West Ham were standing sixth in the First Division and in their side were England's World Cup winners Bobby Moore, Martin Peters and Geoff Hurst along with youngsters Billy Bonds and Trevor Brooking. The game was postponed five times before it finally went ahead on Wednesday 26 February 1969 in front of 21,117 at Field Mill. Mansfield became only the fourth team in club history to knock out clubs from five different leagues in the same competition. They progressed to the quarter final stage where they eventually lost to Leicester City. Chelsea's only meeting with Mansfield was a two-legged League Cup tie in 1985, the Blues winning 4-2 on aggregate.
