Mansfield keeper Alan Marriott cancels retirement plans
Mansfield Town goalkeeper Alan Marriott has abandoned his plans to retire at the end of the season.
The 33-year-old announced last year that he planned to make this season at Field Mill his last.
But Marriott has told BBC Radio Nottingham: "I was just suffering with injuries and you start to question how long you're going to last in the game.
"But I'm willing to carry on playing [and] If I could stay here I'd snap their hands off with another deal."
Marriott is also training to be an electrician and admits he is planning for his retirement.
He said: "I don't ultimately want to be one of those players who's 42, scratching around pub leagues just to get some money to buy a few pints and pay for my Chinese on a Saturday night.
"But I love playing here and I get on fantastically with the supporters [and] all the lads say I could go on for another four or five years.
"I'll keep going as long as I can but it depends, first and foremost, if you're wanted."
