AFC Mansfield ended the season in style by staving off Ollertons attempts to spoil the party.
This was a game that could have easily turned to disaster and leave AFC ending the season on a low.
However The Bulls players were determined against all the odds to show a great home crowd of around 150 that they have had great success this season for a reason.
With several players on the field carrying injury they took the game to Ollerton and went ahead through a Dean Rick goal which now takes his tally over the 60 mark for the season.
Mark Carter added the second to settle any nerves and AFC went into the break 2-0 up.
In the second half Ollerton huffed and puffed but could not break down the resilient AFC team.
They were unlucky not to get on the scoresheet but injured keeper Dale Shepherd stood rooted when the ball cannoned off the post and he turned around to grab the rebound.
The Bulls played on the break most of the second half and it paid off as Dean Rick completed his hat trick and Mark Carter added his second to make the final scoreline AFC Mansfield 5 Ollerton Town 0.
AFC now make the long trip to Westella on Tuesday night with a makeshift team to complete the season.
One thing is for sure that the squad needs to be bigger and with the Under 19s starting up players will not be asked to play through the pain barrier as has been the case this season.
Hats off to them though, they have 2 trophies and 2 runners up medals to show for the commitment they have given.
THESE BULLS ARE TOUGH !
