MCGUIRE IS STAGS’ MR MO­TI­VA­TOR

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

JAMIE McGuire says he is rel­ish­ing his role as Mans­field Town’s cheer­leader – de­spite his lack of first-team ac­tion.

The 31-year-old has been left kick­ing his heels for much of the new sea­son af­ter an in­flux of new sign­ings at Field Mill.

The midfielder did make his first start of the cam­paign in Tues­day’s 2-0 win at Steve­nage but he re­vealed his job de­scrip­tion has been tweaked.

“I haven’t been play­ing, but be­hind the scenes I make sure the lads are up for games. There are a lot of young lads in the team,” said McGuire.

“It’s about get­ting them up for games. League Two is a tough league. I am bolt­ing round. I am a char­ac­ter and I like to gets the lads go­ing and get the fans go­ing. Long may it con­tinue.”

The Birken­head-born bat­tler, though, still en­joyed his run out in mid­week.

“It was a rare start and I en­joyed ev­ery sin­gle minute of it,” he added.
