Stags' youngsters head out on loan

9 August 2017

A number of our bright young talents have been sent out on loan to gain valuable first team experience, with some making an immediate impact at their respective clubs.

Forward Jason Law and left-back Louis Danquah both featured in Gresley's final pre-season friendly ahead of the new campaign as Damion Beckford-Quailey's side ran out 2-0 winners over Evo-Stik Premier outfit Barwell.

Danquah, who can play at left-back or on the wing, set up the first goal as he picked out a Gresley trialist inside the opening five minutes. The promising 19-year-old will be hoping to have done enough to earn a start for the season opener at Cleethorpes on Saturday.

Both Law and Danquah will be at the Moat Ground until New Year's Eve having signed six-month loan deals.

Also making their mark in Derbyshire are strikers Tyler Blake and Zayn Hakeem, who have joined Matlock Town on six-month and one-month loan deals, respectively.

Antigua and Barbuda Under 20 international Hakeem made a fine impression as the Gladiators beat local rivals Belper Town 2-1 in the Caroline Melbourne Memorial Cup on 04 August. The pacy centre-forward proved to be a handful with his lightning speed and quick feet, causing the Belper defence no end of problems.

Blake and Hakeem will both be pushing for a place in the starting XI as Matlock kick-off their new Evo-Stik Premier campaign away to Stourbridge on 13 August – the first of three games in six days.

Meanwhile, three of the Stags' under 21s defenders have today completed loan deals. Kane Baldwin and Teddy Bloor have joined Frickley Athletic on one-month loan deals, while centre-half Kieran Harrison has signed a one-month deal with Romulus.

Frickley get their campaign underway at Newcastle Town on Saturday and Romulus travel to Corby Town in the Evo-Stick South.
