As I am and editorial photographer in Manchester and also travel to Mansfield, in Nottinghamshire I was sent to take portraits of Carolyn for various National newspapers as well as lots of websites
As CEO of Mansfield Town FC, Carolyn Radford is one of only three women occupying senior roles within football. She spoke to Dan Robinson in December 2017 about how she turned around a club on its knees to become self-sustainable – while fighting gender stereotypes along the way
Carolyn Radford is very much aware of how she is perceived in football.
She is married to Mansfield Town chairman John Radford, and ever since her appointment as the club’s CEO in September 2011, questions have been raised about her suitability for the job amid accusations of nepotism.
It hasn’t helped her cause that she is one of only three women in senior boardroom roles out of 92 clubs in the English Football League, putting her firmly in the spotlight.
But in her six years at the helm at Field Mill, Carolyn has helped to steer a club facing potential financial collapse to one that is now about to break even – with hopes of the Stags one day reaching the Championship.
“It was mainly because I’m a woman so it was kind of an unusual thing for people, especially when I was so young,” says Carolyn, who is also a lawyer and director at the club’s sponsor One Call Insurance.
