As the chant goes, "Dove, Dove will tear you apart". Richard Dove has been a consistent and dependable player since his debut in 2005. The Winger from Sutton in Ashfield is a keen fan of Mansfield Town and can often be found wearing his "Stags" shirt during training.
His greatest moment in a black shirt came when his audacious long shot beat the Athletico Gazette Goalkeeper for the 4th goal in our best ever match, the famous 4-3 victory in October 2007. He won the Man of The Match award for his performance in that game.
Here's hoping Richard Dove keeps "tearing" them apart for many yearrs to come.
