Star striker Matt Green returns to Stags

Fans’ favourite Matt Green has returned to Mansfield Town two years after his goals guided them out of the Conference and back into the Football League.

The 28-year-old, who left for Birmingham City in the Championship, has signed a permanent deal to return to One Call Stadium and will spearhead the Stags’ strike-force in the 2015/16 campaign.

Green is fondly remembered by Stags’ supporters for his exploits in that title-winning Conference Premier campaign.

The striker won the divisional ‘Golden Boot’ award for his exploits as he scored 25 goals in the league – including a memorable match-winning strike in the Stags’ nail-biting win over Hereford United in the penultimate game of the season.

Green scored two goals in a dozen appearances at Birmingham, before he was sidelined by an injury.

Delighted with the acquisition of the striker, Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray said: “Both myself and the chairman have thought long and hard in order to beat off competition from League One and Championship clubs to capture the signature of Matt Green.

“It’s a statement of our intent going into next season and it’s great to have him back on board. I thank the chairman for making this happen.”
