Carolyn Radford is the Chief Executive Officer of Mansfield Town and currently one of only two female CEOs in professional football. She accepted the position at Mansfield Town at the age of just 29, becoming the youngest football executive in the country - a title she still holds.


Speaking to Luke on a match day at Field Mill, Carolyn provides a unique insight into the role of a CEO at Football League level and chats on a range of subjects including what it's like to be a woman in the rarefied atmosphere of the professional game and, having steered The Stags back into the Football League, what her plans are for the future of the club.

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for; Wayne Rooney’s international return! The Rooniverse has been a barren, empty place since the great man retired and finally Gareth Southgate is putting a stop to all this ‘looking forward’ nonsense by bringing it back to the good old days.


Jesus. 


As well as all that international relegation becomes a possibility for the first time, with Ireland and Northern Ireland looking to avoid it, Wales find a player down the back of the sofa (in Belgium) and we have some gossip about Pete and a very special lady.

Welcome to the first ever Football Ramble Nights, brought to you by the smokey tones of one Marcus Speller. In the velvet-voiced chat machine’s lounge club we discuss the Manchester derby, the sadness that’s always present just behind Eddie Howe’s eyes and a welcome return for an FA Cup giant; Timmy Mallet. 


Propping up the bar, Pete has another business pitch, informs as of some new dads-at-football-matches action and the bizarre business of bageling. Nice.

Whisper it (like Phil Neville would), but things look like they’re changing for the better at Arsenal. We look back on a pulsating draw with Liverpool at the Emirates, Newcastle finally getting a win and Southampton’s utter calamity of a defensive showing against Man City. Blimey. 


On top of all this there’s a return for Wayne Rooney, as well as a certain fireplace-based anecdote, yet another baffling football statue and a come-and-get-you plea from a team in Australia.

Fulham prove to be accommodating hosts yet again as they invite Bournemouth in for tea, biscuits and three goals at the Cottage. Arsenal were also good guests as they brought Crystal Palace a couple of penalties at Selhurst Park, with Chris Smalling also proving an excellent host at Everton, despite their overall all loss at a game of Monopoly (football, you see).


We’re also lucky enough to meet the great Bryan Klug, witness a truly special Panenka penalty and, of course, welcome a certain balding smoothy back into the game.
