Mansfield Town chairman John Radford gives his Aston Martin to manager Paul Cox following their victory over Barrow.

Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox has been given an Aston Martin by chairman John Radford.

The Blue Square Premier side boss was handed the chairman's car as a gift for leading his team to an 8-1 victory over Barrow on Saturday following their 7-0 win last March.

"I didn't really take him at face value when we was talking but to be fair to the man he's a top guy and when he did it, it was unbelievable," Cox told BBC Radio Five Live.

Radford said: "It's my old Aston Martin so it's not brand new. It's a couple of years old. 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, which had personalised MT51 COX registration plates put on it, is thought to be worth £80,000.
