Three of the promotion winning side from last year have signed on the dotted line for The Bulls.
Phil Buxton signs for his 5th season with AFC Mansfield, having been with the club from day 1. A hard working midfielder, Phil covers every blade of grass and has a strong winning mentality
Phil has made an astonishing 176 appearances for The Bulls, with 44 of them coming last season. Phil scored 8 goals in 2015-16 making it his best goalscoring season to bring his total to 22.
Ryan Williams will be Player/Coach for another season. Ryan joined midway through the 2014-15 season and has made 60 appearances in total. 45 of them came last season along with a haul of 15 goals. That bought his total goal scored to 19 for the club.
Ryan is a bit of a dead ball specialist and free-kicks against Hemsworth MW and Hull United spring to mind.
Last but not least is enigmatic wing man Jimmy Ghaichem who has made 56 appearances for the club since joining in the 2014-15 season.
Jimmy made 40 appearances last season, scoring just 1 goal to bring his tally to 3 goals for the club.
Jimmy's work-rate and energy are second to none, this coupled with his quick footwork make him a defenders nightmare.
The club is very pleased to have all three back on board.
