Adam Murray eyes a big future after penning new Stags deal
MANSFIELD Town player/assistant manager Adam Murray believes his one-year contract extension with the club goes way beyond just football.
The 31-year-old midfielder has committed himself to the Stags until May 2014.
And the club captain – in his third spell with Mansfield – is looking forward to playing a huge part both on and off the pitch.
Murray said: "Personally, this extension helps me to plan for the future.

"I have certain projects here that I have got planned and the chairman is obviously happy with the roles I'm playing at the moment, so I'm glad it's done and dusted."
Murray is currently juggling a hectic daily schedule at the club, in which he combines first-team training duties with coaching the youth team.
"The youth team has been a breath of fresh air and I'm enjoying every minute of it," said Murray.
Meanwhile, two first-team players have gone out on one-month loans.
Midfielder Jamie Hand has joined Conference South outfit Eastleigh and Jobe Shaw has linked up with Sheffield FC of the Northern Premier League.
But the Stags have been unable to strike a deal to bring Liam Mitchell back on loan, which means Shane Redmond is set to start in goal against Southport today.
