Youth preview: Stags vs Grimsby Town

25 September 2019

Our under-18s are back in action this Saturday, when they will look to extend their winning run to five matches against Grimsby Town at The RH Academy (11am kick-off).

The Stags have won four successive games in league and cup, which has seen them rise up the EFL Youth Alliance league table.

The amber and blue are level on points with leaders Rotherham United in the standings, after toppling previous leaders Doncaster Rovers last weekend by way of a 1-0 victory.

A second-half header from defender Jamie Chisholm was enough to earn the Stags a hard-fought victory at Cantley Park.

This Saturday, the young guns will switch their attention to last season’s champions Grimsby Town.

The Mariners have endured an inconsistent start to their title defence, with two wins and a draw from their opening six matches.

Last time out, Grimsby were condemned to their third league defeat of the season after losing 1-0 at home to Lincoln City.

The last time the sides met at the RH Academy, it was the eventual champions who took the points with a 2-1 success.

This victory was crucial for Grimsby as they went on to end the amber and blue’s three-year reign as champions. 

As ever, all supporters are welcome to attend the game for free at the following venue: The RH Academy, Woburn Lane, Mansfield, NG19 7RT.
