SEE LOVE O! MANSFIELD TOWN COACH SET TO MARRY GIRLFRIEND AT CLUB'S TRAINING GROUND
Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox will begin the biggest weekend of his life on Friday by marrying his girlfriend at the club’s training ground.
Cox’s team from the Blue Square Premier host giants Liverpool at the One Call Stadium on Sunday in one of the ties of the FA Cup third round.
Cox will begin the weekend by marrying his girlfriend on the training ground next to the stadium after honouring a promise he made to her ahead of the club’s replay with Lincoln in the previous round.
Having drawn 3-3 at Sincil Bank in the first game, Cox told his partner he would marry her if Mansfield went through and, after a 2-1 win clinched a meeting with Brendan Rodgers’ team, he will keep his word tomorrow when the couple tie the knot in a specially erected marquee.
A Mansfield source said: 'It’s going to be a big three days for Paul.
'He gets married on Friday and then it’s Liverpool on the day of his 41st birthday on Sunday.'
Mansfield are currently ninth in the Blue Square after losing out in the promotion play-offs last season.
Could this be love?
