Stags' under-18s have been drawn into Group 4 of the northern section of the Youth Alliance Cup, along with Rochdale, Fleetwood Town, Burton Albion and Grimsby Town.
Group 4's first batch of matches will commence on Saturday 25 August, with Stags facing a trip to Burton Albion, and Rochdale playing Fleetwood at home. Both fixtures will kick off at 11.00am.
The cup sees teams from the northern and southern sections face each other in a bid to reach the sectional finals, with the winners of each final coming together to stage the regional final. The top two sides from each group will progress to the knockout stages.
Last season, Luton Town were crowned champions, after beating Wigan 1-0 in the regional final.
Stags made it to the northern quarter-finals last term, narrowly losing to Grimsby on penalties after a 1-1 draw.
