We can confirm that promising young goalkeeper Liam Mitchell has joined us on a one month loan deal from Notts County.
The 20-year-old is a product from the Magpies youth production line and has also gained loan experience at Tamworth and Lewes.
After putting pen to paper this afternoon, Mitchell told www.mansfieldtown.net: “I want to try and get some vital experience and help the Stags move up the table.”
Said manager Paul Cox: "We've kept an eye on Liam for some time. He is a promising young 'keeper who I am sure will have a bright future in the game."
Meanwhile Cox has stated in his matchday programme notes that goalkeeper Alan Marriott, who suffered a shoulder injury in training this week, will undergo surgery and will be out for ‘a number of months’.
