Loanees enjoying valuable game-time

7 February 2018

Read all about Stags' players who are playing for loan clubs across the country...

SAM WILSON (Corby Town)
The young shot-stopper's scheduled game for Corby Town was postponed due to a frozen pitch on Saturday. They were due to play away against Cleethorpes Town. Wilson did, however, play 90 minutes for Stags' reserves on Tuesday. Despite losing 6-0 to a strong Port Vale side, Wilson made a number of good saves to prevent the scoreline from being even more emphatic.

TEDDY BLOOR (Frickley Athletic)
Right-back Teddy Bloor helped Frickley keep a clean sheet in an 8-0 drubbing of Market Drayton Town on Saturday. Despite not getting on the scoresheet, Bloor completed 90 minutes as Athletic became the Evo-Stik's highest scorers across all three leagues, bagging 92 goals thus far. Their game against Spalding United on Tuesday fell foul to a waterlogged pitch.

Despite going 1-0 up, Belper Town lost 2-1 to Loughborough Dynamo on Saturday. Centre-half Kieran Harrison played the full 90 minutes but was helpless as the Nailers fell to another defeat. The defender also played 90 minutes for the Stags' reserves, who lost 6-0 to Port Vale on Tuesday.

LOUIS DANQUAH (Carlton Town)
After joining Carlton for a month last week, their scheduled games for Saturday and Tuesday were both postponed due a waterlogged pitch on both occasions. Danquah did, however, play for Stags' reserves against Port Vale on Tuesday.

ALISTAIR SMITH (Loughborough Dynamo)
Attacking midfielder Alistair Smith lined up against fellow Stags' loanee Kieran Harrison on Saturday and came out on top as his Loughborough Dynamo side triumphed 2-1. Smith completed 90 minutes and was a constant menace for the Nailers' back line.

CALUM BUTCHER (Billericay Town)
Midfielder Calum Butcher, who joined the Essex club on Deadline Day, played in their 2-2 draw with Harrogate in the FA Trophy on Saturday, making way for Danny Waldren after 87 minutes. He was also handed a start in the replay on Tuesday night, but was subject to mixed emotions. Billericay won the replay 3-2, but Butcher was dismissed for two yellow cards in the space of four second half minutes with the score at 3-1.

TYLER BLAKE (Frickley Athletic)
Frontman Tyler Blake enjoyed his best game in a Frickley Athletic shirt so far in their 8-0 thrashing of Market Drayton Town on Saturday. He bagged two goals in the space of five first half minutes to make it 3-0 and 4-0 on a comfortable day for Athletic. Blake could have secured a hat-trick in the second half, but his header was officially recorded as an own goal.

JORDAN GRAHAM (Hednesford Town)
Striker Jordan Graham is continuing to flourish for Hednesford Town and has played a huge part in back-to-back wins over the last few days. On Saturday, they defeated Farsley Celtic 3-1 away from home. After falling behind, Graham exquisitely back-heeled towards goal from a corner, before seeing his effort cleared off the line. He had a good effort saved from the edge of the box before pulling the ball back to Danny Glover to head in to make it 2-1. Then in the Staffordshire Senior Cup, the Pitmen defeated Newcastle Town 2-1 with Graham hitting the post before teeing up James Lawrie to score the winner late on.
