Former Lincoln City goalkeeper Alan Marriott has been released by Mansfield Town

Comments (5)

Alan Marriott has left Mansfield Town after failing to agree a new deal with the Stags.

The former Lincoln City goalkeeper had been with the Nottinghamshire side for more than five years.

Marriott took to twitter to say: “Very sad and disappointed to be leaving Mansfield. Really wanted to re-sign on reduced deal but don't think it was gonna happen..”

Stags boss Paul Cox said: “Alan has been a tremendous servant to the club in the years that I’ve been here and I’d like to place on record my thanks to him for his efforts.

“I wish him every success in the future.”

The 35-year-old made 201 league appearances for Mansfield, keeping 66 clean sheets, but is now free to talk to other clubs.

The former Tottenham Hotspur trainee joined Lincoln City in 1999 and was a pivotal part of the Imps teams which made the League Two play-offs five years in a row.

However, he was let go in 2008 by then manager Peter Jackson. It was a shock decision, with the popular Marriott just one season away from securing a testimonial game.

Would you like to see Marriott make a return to Lincoln City? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Would you like to see Marriott make a return to Lincoln City ? Of course any supporter who calls himself interested in the future of the club would ! The last time I saw him play it was obvious he's still got it . All the best for the future Alan and Thank You . Regards Mike Cadwell

    Would love to see him back at the bank. Remember him making his debut and reading about how nervous he was and barely slept the night before. I grew up with him in goal pretty much and he always seems to be around talking about Lincoln so it would be great to have him back. But I wonder of that is just me being sentimental? Would be nice if he is still league quality to make advantage of Homs home ties in the same way Woking have done with Kevin Betsy or Tamworth with Lee Hendry. Allows you to get a player who can still offer something who would never dream of otherwise going to the club

    It will be interesting to see if city offer Alan a deal of some sort before the start of next season , if he doesn't get fixed up before ! As has been said previously a bad mistake by Peter Jackson to let him go in the first place . When he was with us , the best shot stopper in the business , and we at city owe him a lot . Regards Mike Cadwell

    We should never have let him go in the first place! Would make an ideal replacement for Farman!

    Always liked Marriott, like most I was sad to see him go. Would be good competition for Farman but I presume we have the position covered with Preece coaching and providing backup. If we could afford his wages without denying ourselves in other areas I'd offer him a deal.
