Maynard back at Mansfield Town

Prolific striker Nicky Maynard has re-signed for Mansfield Town on a one-year-contract.

The forward spent last season in amber and blue, netting 15 goals in all competitions.

Maynard joined the Stags from Bury, following a campaign in which he scored 22 times as the Shakers were promoted to Sky Bet League One.

Starting his career at hometown Crewe Alexandra, he scored 35 goals in 67 matches before sealing a £2.25m move to Bristol City in 2008.

The 33-year-old found the net 46 times in 131 appearances for the Robins, before moving to West Ham in 2012.

Maynard scored six times in 17 outings for the Hammers before moving to Cardiff City, appearing in the Premier League for the Bluebirds.

Spells then followed at Wigan Athletic, MK Dons, Aberdeen and Bury, before joining the Stags last summer.

Manager Graham Coughlan told “It’s great to have Nicky back. He was our top goalscorer last season and is a natural finisher.

“He knows how we work and how we want to play.

“There’s now great competition up front and I’m excited to see how it pans out.

“Obviously Nicky is a few weeks short of match fitness, so fingers crossed we can get him up to speed and ready for the start of our league campaign.”

Maynard joined just before the Stags went out of the EFL Cup, losing 4-0 at Preston, their first match since coronavirus lockdown.
