Young fan gifted Stags season ticket

Posted onPosted on 15th Nov

A caring anonymous Mansfield Town supporter generously bought a season ticket and scarf for a young fan.

The benefactor, who asked only to be known as Wilfred, from independent fans’ messageboard Stagsnet, made the purchase for Alfie Battiste following a request for nominations.

It means the 11-year-old can watch all the Stags’ home league fixtures this season in the lower tier of the Ian Greaves Stand.

Alfie’s mum, Kerry Battiste, said: “I would just like to thank the fellow Stags supporter for giving Alfie the chance to experience professional football, which he had never had before. He is thoroughly enjoying going to every match and it enables us to have a bit of mum-and-son time.

“I also want to say a huge thank you to Craig Foster, who nominated Alfie, as he knows how awful the past couple of years have been.”

Mansfield Town chief executive, David Sharpe, added: “This is a very kind act of generosity and goodwill.

“To purchase a season ticket and a scarf for a younger supporter is something that Alfie will remember for a lifetime. It is heartening to see a gesture of such selflessness.

“Thank you to the anonymous supporter and we hope that Alfie enjoys our home games at One Call Stadium this season.”
