Mansfield Chief Executive claims club are ready to appoint a female manager

Mansfield CEO Carolyn Radford has claimed her club are ready to appoint a female boss in the future, according to The Sun.

Radford insists the Stags aren’t ready to appoint a female boss in the next ten years, but are open to the idea of having a women in charge in the future

Radford said “We’re unlikely to have a woman manager in the next 10 years, but we will see it in the future.”

“Would I be brave enough to put a woman in charge of my team? I would, yes. I’ve got to. Solidarity of women.”

“It purely has to be based on ability, and then experience as well, so you have to get the ball rolling. Managers can come through with no experience – Kevin Nolan at Notts County had next to none and there are loads of others.”

“Everyone has to start somewhere. Women are on the coaching staff with some clubs and they are coming through.”

“Whether it’s as medical staff, fitness coaches or on performance analysis. Our performance analyst and physio are both female. Traditionally, 10 years ago, I doubt there’d be many women working throughout a football club.”

Radford – who has been at Mansfield since 2011 after her husband John bought the club – has also insisted their long-term ambition is for the League Two side to reach the Championship.

David Flitcroft’s men currently sit in eighth spot in the English fourth-tier – two points behind Coventry who are occupying the final play-off place.

Mansfield suffered a 4-3 defeat against Crewe on Saturday, and face Stevenage and Chesterfield in their next two outings.
