Mansfield Town were motoring when they clocked up an 8-1 win over Barrow — and so impressed was chairman John Radford, he gave his Aston Martin to manager Paul Cox as a reward.
The keys to the 85,000 Vantage Coupe, with the registration MT51 COX, were handed over after a Matt Green hat-trick, helped wrap up a Blue Square Premier win.
Gift: John Radford rewarded his manager handsomely
Radford, 56, who is also the club’s owner, had only got to One Call Stadium at half-time after returning from Ireland and was so blown away by the 5-1 scoreline that he told Cox the car was his.
The manager said: ‘I’m not sure if it’s a wind-up. Maybe I’ll get to the car park and find a bike with some stabilisers on it.’
