Ben Hutchinson is one of six players who will be part of Mansfield's first season back in the Football League after signing contract extensions.

Ross Dyer, Ritchie Sutton, Matt Rhead, Lee Stevenson and Lindon Meikle all put pen to paper after boss Paul Cox took up a second-year option on their deals.

John Dempster, Ryan Tafazolli, Anthony Howell, Lee Beevers and Alan Marriott will also sign in the next few days.

The Stags won the Blue Square Bet Premier title this season.
