Stags captain signs new deal

Mansfield Town captain Lee Collins has signed a new deal at the club.

The former Northampton Town man was named as the Manager’s Player of the Season at the club’s Annual Awards Dinner and has now committed his future to the Stags after a solid first campaign at One Call Stadium.

It wasn’t until the middle of October when Collins got a run in the side following the suspension of fellow defender Pearce, before being made captain after the departure of Nicky Hunt to Leyton Orient in January.

The 27-year-old Wolverhampton Wanderers Academy product made 32 starts in all competitions for Adam Murray’s side last season, showing his versatility by playing at centre-back, right-back and defensive midfield.

“I’m delighted to have signed and am already looking forward to next season,” said Collins. “We enjoyed a productive campaign in 2015-16 and will aim to go one better next season.”
