Mansfield defenders John Dempster and Ryan Tafazolli have both signed new contracts with the Football League newcomers.

The duo were part of the Stags' Conference title-winning side last season and have put pen to paper on deals to extend their stays at the One Call Stadium.

Signed from Crawley last summer, Dempster, 30, made 45 appearances for Paul Cox's side during the 2012/13 campaign and was a key member in the Mansfield back line.

Tafazolli, meanwhile, a former Southampton trainee, featured on five occasions during an injury-hit season for the 21-year-old.
