"I wanted to help the people at Clipstone who have worked so hard to build their club," said Evans.

"I know their great pride for their facilities at the Worksop Van Hire Stadium and it's important to the community of Mansfield that we help Clipstone in any way we can during this setback.

"These are Mansfield people who are badly affected by what took place at the weekend and I felt it only right that we help them restore their facilities as best they can."
