BUBBLY COX OUT TO STUN STAGS
PAUL COX is looking forward to meeting up with old friends and sharing a glass of wine at Mansfield Town this afternoon – but it’s Guiseley he hopes will be downing the bubbly!
The Lions’ boss returns to the club he guided to the Conference title in 2013 for the first time since he resigned in November 2014.
His captain for the triumphant campaign was midfielder Adam Murray, who replaced Cox as Mansfield manager and is now at Guiseley as his assistant.
Cox is now focusing on developing the history his Guiseley have already created in reaching the second round proper for the first time ever after beating Accrington Stanley.
“I’ve already spoken to the people at Mansfield and, win, lose or draw, I’ll pop in for a glass of wine or a beer and say hello,” said Cox. “But take away the romance. We’ve already made history for Guiseley and we want to go even further now.
“We’ve got to be hungry to go to the next stage.”
