On the day when his death was announced, it seemed appropriate that today’s Stags Down The Years picture should feature striker Dave Syrett.
In this one he is pictured going close in the 0-0 home draw with Milwall in September 1977 – early in the club’s only ever season in the old League Two (now the Championship) when Stags were eventually relegated.

Syrett top-scored that season with 16 goals, but it wasn’t enough to save them from the drop.
What memories do you have of Syrett’s time with Stags?
