Aston Martin, just a perk of the job

A football club chairman has given his Aston Martin car to the team's manager as a reward for an 8-1 victory.

Mansfield Town chairman John Radford handed over the keys to Paul Cox following the win over Barrow on Saturday.

The Blue Square Premier team won 7-0 when they played Barrow last March and Radford said he wanted to do even better when the two teams met again.

"It's worth a bob or two," Mr Radford said.

"It's my old Aston Martin so it's not brand new. It's a couple of years old," he added.

"You have these things and you've got to give people targets and things like that, so he fancied the car and I thought I'm about ready for a change and he did the job."

The car, worth up to £80,000, was waiting in the car park of the Nottinghamshire club after the game, already fitted with personalised MT51 COX registration plates.
