BULLS ANNOUNCE ADVISORY BOARD
FIVE APPOINTMENTS ANNOUNCED THE OVER THE NEXT FIVE DAYS
DAY ONE – WELCOME TO THE BULLS NATHAN THOMPSON
The Bulls have created an advisory board that will help develop the strategy of the football club as we look to provide real opportunities for players to develop and follow their passion. Chairman / Joint Manager Spencer Fearn stated “over the next five days, we will announce one advisory board member per day. I have been humbled by the quality of individuals that wish to give their time to help build our club at AFC Mansfield. I cannot wait to get started to start developing our club further as one that is recognised as the club of opportunity, a club that stands for second chances, underdogs and hard work paying off”.
Our first member of the Advisory board is Nathan Thompson, who will be Chair of the board. Nathan has spent the past 13 years as a professional footballer, playing for Swindon Town, Portsmouth and Peterborough United and he is nearing completion of the coveted VSI Sports Directorship Masters’ Degree.
Nathan stated “The opportunity to join AFC Mansfield presented itself and it was one a felt was mutually beneficial as it will allow me to build an even more in depth understanding of how a club operates. The ethos of giving opportunities to players whose talents hadn’t previously been fully appreciated aligned with mine, having played with numerous players over the years who had been in similar positions. When given a chance and the environment is conducive to allowing players to prosper, the result can be exciting, and I believe that’s what AFC Mansfield are trying to create. Therefore, I’m delighted to join the advisory board and excited to see where this journey takes us”.
