Toolstation Northern Counties East League Premier Division club AFC Mansfield have announced the departure of two of their longest-serving players.

Danny Naylor and Chris Timons have been with the club since its formation and have taken the team through two promotions, four trophies, five runners-up spots, the last sixteen and last thirty-two of the FA Vase and Third Qualifying Round of the FA Cup. All this in just five seasons.

Naylor made a total of 201 appearances for the club – a record number.

Naylor has decided to join Central Midland League side Sherwood Colliery.

Although Timons played in AFC Mansfield`s first ever game – a friendly against Rainworth Miners Welfare – he didn’t officially join the club until February 2013.

He went on to captain the side through two promotions and in the club`s NCEL promotion year he played forty-eight games and eventually made 169 appearances for The Bulls.

He has left to join his home-town club Shirebrook Town where he has been installed as club captain.
