Mansfield Town

One Call Stadium,

Quarry Lane,

Mansfield NG18 5DA

Field Mill (or the One Call Stadium) is a big stadium with a high-banked, roofed North Stand behind one of the goals where up to 1800 away fans can be accommodated.  It’s an all-seater stadium.

As you would expect from a modern stand that is free of any supporting pillars,  the views of the playing action are pretty good, as are the facilities. The stand has a low roof meaning that visiting supporters can really make some noise from this end, helping to boost the atmosphere.

NB One Call stadium is cashless, card payments only.

By Train

Trains from the Stroud area take about 4 hours 30 minutes, involve 3 changes, and you are unlikely to get back on the same day, so aren’t going to be an option for most.

Please check train times as there is always the risk of strikes & engineering work.

There is only one route by train into Mansfield and that is the Worksop train which leaves from Nottingham station. The stop you need is the Mansfield station, not Mansfield Woodhouse.

After leaving the station, walk down the main road past St Peter’s Retail Park, until you see the sign for Portland Retail Park. On your way to the Portland Retail Park you will be able to see the upper tier of the Ian Greaves Stand. Once you are there, you can see the North Stand.

By Car

The journey by road from Stroud area is about 2 hours 50 minutes (138 miles).

The postcode for the ground is NG18 5DA.

Visitors from the South or West should take the M1 exiting at junction 28, then take the A38 towards Mansfield. After around six miles turn right into Belvedere Street (at crossroads), then after a quarter of a mile, turn right into Quarry Lane for One Call Stadium.

Car Parking 

There is no car parking available at One Call Stadium on matchdays.

Please do not park in the retail park behind the away end. Parking is restricted to two hours and is camera monitored, so you will end up with an expensive parking ticket if you do park for longer than the two hours.

However, there is alternative parking on…

Grove Street, NG18 1EL at 70p per hour.

Robin Hood Line Station, NG18 1HA 70p per hour or a 24hr ticket for £3.00. Disabled parking is free within the designated spaces for blue badge holders.

Watermeadows, NG18 1BA £1 per hour. Disabled parking is free within the designated spaces for blue badge holders.

There is on-street parking within a reasonable (half a mile) walking distance around the ground.

Food and Drink

There is a bar at the ground called the Sandy Pate (underneath the Ian Greaves Stand). Except for high profile matches the bar welcomes away fans and shows Sky Sports. However, as you would expect it gets quite busy on matchdays.

There is the Talbot pub on the Nottingham Road (A60) near to the Sainsburys Supermarket. However, this pub is for home fans only, but opposite is the ‘Il Rosso’ which does admit visiting supporters who are not showing colours. The ‘Il Rosso’ is an upmarket wine bar and a little on the pricey side, albeit with a good selection of beers and lagers and Big Screen TV. It is popular with visiting fans.

There is also the Midland Hotel, on Station Road, which is around a ten-minute walk away from the stadium, near the railway station and admits visiting supporters. A similar distance from the stadium is the Railway Inn on Station Street. This basic pub has a mixture of home and away fans and offers local real ales and food. It is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

Away fans should avoid the Victoria Hotel and Red Lion Pubs. Generally, it is advised to also steer clear of pubs in the town centre.

Ex FGR First Team Coach Rob Edwards (now Luton) with Mansfield Manager Nigel Clough at TNL

The appointment of Nigel Clough as manager was something of a coup for Mansfield as Clough has some pedigree (14 England caps, and over 600 appearances at the top level with 131 goals). He had also managed Derby County, Sheffield United and Burton Albion before his arrival at Mansfield.

A frozen Mansfield pitch resulted in the second of the postponements. The first attempt was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. 

A previous FGR v Mansfield game in January 2022 was halted due to fog at TNL. The linesman on the far side didn’t find out the match had been postponed until the ground staff turned up for work the next day.

Rovers Connections

Bailey Cargill (FGR 21-23, 81 appearances 3 goals). In May 23 he joined Mansfield.

Farrend Rawson (FGR 2018-20, 86 appearances, 4 goals). Nottingham-born Farrend joined Mansfield in July 2020. In June 2022 he joined Morecambe.

Club History

Mansfield play at Field Mill, which lays claim to being the oldest professional football ground in the world (used for football since 1861). Mansfield didn’t start playing at Field Mill until just after the First World War when their rivals, Mansfield Mechanics, were evicted from the venue for not paying their rent.

Mansfield started life as the Mansfield Wesleyans. But when the local league they played in (the Mansfield District Amateur League) dropped the word ‘Amateur’ from their title, the Wesleyan church turned their back on the club and forbade them from using the word ‘Wesleyans’. As an act of defiance, the club called themselves Mansfield Wesley in the early 1900’s. This isn’t the only brush the club had with religion at the time – in 1909 their chairman Fred Abraham and secretary James Marples resigned, later to be banned by the FA for serious irregularities. They had committed the (then) heinous crime of signing a player on the Sabbath (the day of rest).

The club, like many, has had its ups and downs. Some yo-yoing between the 3rd and 4th tiers of English football, a spell in the Conference (National League) between 2008 and 2013, and controversies with their owners. The club, now owned by John and Carolyn Radford, seem to be sailing in calmer waters these days.

Mansfield is a former market town in Nottinghamshire, just east of the M1. In past years, brewing, soft drinks and coal have dominated the town but there is little sign of any of these industries in the town now (other than the fact many Mansfield streets have suffered from mining subsidence).

Swimmer Rebecca Adlington, TV presenter Richard Bacon, and Lib Dem leader Ed Davey all come from Mansfield.


Sally & Sammy Stag

In 2016 Sammy won the Mascots race at Uttoxeter Racecourse.

This achievement clearly caught Sally’s eye. As although he has been a mascot for 20 years Sally has only been a mascot for the last 4 years.

A few miles outside Mansfield lies Sherwood Forest, a Royal Forest famous for its links with Robin Hood.

Mansfield has a tree and a plaque mounted on a plinth in West Gate to mark what was the centre of Sherwood Forest. Nearby is a giant metallic feather sculpture dating from 2007. This has been named A Spire for Mansfield.
