Career

Blackpool

Mangan began his education in football with Blackpool at the age of 15. He was there for three years scoring 49 goals all together in reserve and youth team football. He also made his professional debut at the club, at the age of 17 in a 1–0 defeat to Chesterfield on 24 April 2004.[2] He made just 2 professional appearances at Blackpool under Steve MacMahon. With the arrival of Colin Hendry as manager in Mangan's third year at the club, he found it hard to break in to the first team and went out on a work experience loan to Northern Premier League Premier Division side Hyde United, scoring 2 goals in 7 appearances,[3] helping them secure the league title along the way. It was thought Mangan would return to Hyde the following season but he rejected them in favour of a full time contract with Accrington Stanley, after impressing during the clubs pre-season schedule.[4]

Accrington Stanley

At Accrington Mangan played 2 full seasons helping them gain promotion to The Football League for the first time in 50 years. After making his debut in a 1–0 win over Canvey Island on 13 August 2005,[5] Mangan scored his first goal for the club in his third appearance during a 3–1 defeat to Cambridge United.[6] In his first full season Mangan played in 45 cup and league games scoring ten goals, being mainly used in the last forty minutes as a substitute. In his second year at the club Mangan became frustrated with the lack of starts he was getting. From his 38 total appearances, of which only five were made as a starter, he scored 6 goals. At the end of the 2006–07 season, Mangan was offered a two year deal from Accrington but rejected in favour of Bury, having appeared in a pre-season friendly for the club against Everton.[7]

Bury

At Bury Mangan was given his chance, scoring his first goal on 7 September 2007 with a header against Chesterfield,[8] with 5 more goals coming before Christmas. Mangan was injured at the beginning of December 2007 with a suspected hernia problem and later underwent surgery, restricitng him to just 6 appearances in the rest of the season as he struggled to regain fitness. He made a total of 26 appearances in all competitions while with Bury. Following the sacking of Bury manager Chris Casper, Mangan was allowed to return to Accrington Stanley on loan by his replcaement Alan Knill on a one-month loan deal,[9] scoring one goal in seven appearances. Mangan was released towards the end of the 2008 season.

Betting scandal

On 7 April 2009, one year after leaving Bury, Mangan was named as one of five players charged by the Football Association for breaching betting rules, whereby players, managers or coaching staff are prohibited from betting on the result or progress of any match or competition in which the participant is participating or has any direct or indirect influence. According to the BBC, the charge relates to a match between Bury and Accrington Stanley, before which Mangan is alleged to have placed stakes to the value of approximately £3,500.[10] The Football Association subsequently fined him £2,000 and banned him for five months.[11][12]

Forest Green Rovers

In the summer of 2008 Mangan signed for Forest Green Rovers. Forest Green Rovers manager Jim Harvey made Mangan his first signing of the summer, saying he had been following Mangan for a while. It was here at Forest Green Rovers that Mangan came into his own. He made 49 appearances scoring 30 goals, 26 of them were in the league and he finished the Conference National top goalscorer. His 30 goals included hat tricks against Torquay United, Lewes and Rushden & Diamonds. Mangan was voted player of the year by the Directors of Forest Green Rovers.

Having completed his five month ban imposed by the Football Association over his involvement in a betting scandal,[13] Mangan maintained his desire to stay at Forest Green Rovers until the end of the 2009–10 season, despite speculation linking him with a move to fellow Conference National side Wrexham, having been in talks with the side prior to the start of the season.[14]

Wrexham

On 20 January he completed a move to Wrexham for an undisclosed fee,[15] making his debut on 23 January in a 1–0 victory over Wimbledon,[16] before scoring his first goal seven days later in his third appearance during a 3–1 over Altrincham.[17]. Mangan then scored his first ever home goal for Wrexham in a 2–1 victory over Mansfield Town.
