Youth preview: Grimsby Town vs Stags

11 August 2017

Mansfield Town's under 18s will go in search of their first win of the 2017/18 season when they travel to Grimsby Town on Saturday (11.00am kick-off).

Academy manager John Dempster's side began their EFL Youth Alliance campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to local rivals Chesterfield on Tuesday afternoon. 

Midfielder Keaton Ward dispatched a first half penalty to give the Stags the lead, but they were pegged back in the second period when the Spireites scored a spot kick of their own. 

The under 18s are looking to successfully defend their league title for the second consecutive seasons, after recording back-to-back league crowns in 2015/16 and 2016/17. 

Grimsby kicked off their 2017/18 campaign with a comfortable 3-0 victory away to Doncaster Rovers last week. 

Last season, the Mariners finished third-from-bottom in the division with 24 points.
