Mansfield Town goalkeeper Alan Marriott joined the illustrious ‘goal-scoring goalies’ club last night, punting one over his opposite number Joslain Mayebi to score the Stags’ second goal in their 2-0 win over play-off rivals Wrexham in the Blue Square Premier.

The strong winds surging the length of Field Mill may have been a factor…


Marriott’s colossal trebuchet of a goal also saw Mansfield secure themselves third place in the Conference, with Wrexham tying up second place despite the loss – meaning that the two sides are now only able to meet each other again this season in the Blue Square play-off final.
