Mansfield Town's international stars past and present

Mansfield Town have rarely had current internationals in the side in the past but have had a rush of them in recent seasons with games actually cancelled for international weekends last season for the first time.

If new loan signing Conor Shaughnessy or Ryan Sweeney can achieve their ambition of a full Irish call-up then that could happen again this season. Here are some of the club's international stars past and present.

Now retired, centre half Day joined Stags from Manchester City in 2002, having progressed from Wales U19s to the U21s, with whom he won 11 caps. He was called up to the senior squad in May 2003 to play USA but was unused and never capped at that level.
