Carolyn Radford: ‘If I’d known the abuse I would get as a club executive I’d never have done it’

Mansfield Town are one of only three clubs from the 92 with a woman in an executive role but sometimes she is still the recipient of crass remarks in away teams’ boardrooms

Inside Mansfield Town’s One Call Stadium and the mug shots on the wall of Carolyn Radford’s office highlight football’s woeful lack of gender diversity. There are more than 60 individual photographs of players and coaching staff but only one of them, the first‑team’s sports therapist, Lizzie Read, is a woman.

“That’s the issue,” says the chief executive, one of the most high-profile women in the game. “There are no female managers, assistant managers, or goalkeeping coaches.”

Football League your thoughts: Bradford City and Carlisle extend unbeaten starts

Bradford took advantage of Scunthorpe’s draw with Northampton to close on the League One leaders, Andy Williams broke Barnet hearts and Plymouth’s Sonny Bradley had an eventful afternoon

Bradford City continued their unbeaten start to the League Two season with a 2-0 win over Shrewsbury. Nicky Law gave the Bantams an early lead, and while the struggling Shrews clung to their coattails, they failed to break down Bradford’s mean defence. Stuart McCall’s team have conceded only seven goals in 12 games, and they kept the visitors at bay until Haris Vuckic’s 96th-minute penalty sealed the win. Bradford are now just a point behind the leaders, Scunthorpe United, who could only draw with 10-man Northampton as Jak McCourt forced the ball home to cancel out Josh Morris’s 12th league goal of the season.

Bristol Rovers beat Mansfield for fourth win in 12 days to keep up promotion rush | Jeremy Alexander

Matty Taylor winner helps The Gas increase their pressure in League Two and goes some way to lay a relegation ghost

A Gas explosion is rocking not only the city of Bristol but League Two. Late last month Rovers changed hands, bought by a Jordanian banker, Wael al-Qadi. On Saturday the team beat Mansfield Town 1-0 at the Memorial Stadium, a fourth win in 12 days, to go fourth above Portsmouth and within three points of Oxford United and Plymouth Argyle, all of whom lost. “The supporters have had hell here for a long time,” said their manager, Darrell Clarke, “and I’m pleased if I’ve sent them home happy and they are getting excited.”

The hell has been personal, too. Two years ago he was given eight games to save them from relegation. On the last day, having won at Wycombe Wanderers the previous weekend, they needed a point to make other results, including Wycombe’s, irrelevant. Rovers, at home to Mansfield, lost 1-0 and went down. Clarke, a son of Mansfield who started a lower League career there, admitted to being haunted ever since. Colin Daniel, who scored the fateful goal, was booed when he came on as a substitute on Saturday. Six minutes later, just beyond the hour, Matty Taylor scored the goal that may have laid the ghost.
