A WOMAN who became the youngest boss of an English football club used to be an ESCORT, The Sun can reveal.
Glamorous Carolyn Still, 29, enjoyed steamy dates with scores of male punters before landing the top job at Mansfield Town FC.
She was made chief executive of the Nottinghamshire club last week after striking up a friendship with club chairman John Radford, 45, who offered her a job.
Carolyn was on the books of two sexy agencies and was said to have “met men at different times of day and night”.
The pair deny their close relationship had any impact on her appointment to the Blue Square Bet Premier club, nicknamed The Stags.
Carolyn, believed to be originally from Lancashire, is thought to have been first lured into escorting as a politics student almost ten years ago.
She signed up with an agency called Lucy Brookes, posing for raunchy internet photos as “Luella”.
The money she earned is believed to have gone to pay off debts and she later headed to London to work as an account manager for top fashion labels Bulgari and Gucci.
Sources revealed she signed up with another agency, McKenzie’s, one of the biggest in Britain.
Later she moved back to Leeds — where she had worked previously — and held a job with crisp makers Seabrook’s before returning to escorting in 2009.
This time she worked under the name “Brooke” and received rave reviews from punters who hired her for hours at a time. Last night the shocked soccer executive did not deny our story when we put it to her.
However a pal revealed she had been “very good” as an escort and that men had paid her huge tips.
Instead she told The Sun: “I haven’t had a hunky-dory life at all. I don’t even know what to say. For me, it’s just very overwhelming.”
The pal added: “She used to meet men at different times of the day and night. It helped bring in a lot of extra money.”
Carolyn is thought to have quit escorting last year.
Speaking last week about her new role, she said: “I intend to add vibrancy and fresh ideas to our approach off the field. I want to wake sleeping fans.”
Carolyn’s appointment comes almost 20 years since SunSport columnist Karren Brady blazed a trail in English soccer.
Apprentice star and West Ham vice-chairman Karren, now 42, was made Birmingham City’s managing director at 23 in 1993.
She battled sexism from players and club officials to begin with.
But eventually she won respect for her no-nonsense approach – with ex-Blues manager Barry Fry later describing her as “one hard b*****d”.
However Carolyn has already faced questions over her closeness to Mr Radford.
Speaking after landing the job, she said: “I don’t feel it’s appropriate at this stage to comment.
Repeated rumours suggest the pair are an item, a claim which Carolyn has so far failed to deny.
“This has been a genuine appointment. I have worked hard to get where I am.”
McKenzie’s agency hit the headlines in 2007 when Cristiano Ronaldo and current Man Utd star Anderson romped with FIVE girls from the firm, including Tyese Cunningham and Gemma Storey.
