Forest keeper joins on loan

25 June 2021

Mansfield Town is delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper George Shelvey from Nottingham Forest on a season-long loan.

In recent seasons, the 19-year-old has been involved with the Reds’ first team squad in training and in their set-up on matchdays.

He was on the substitutes' bench for Forest's Emirates FA Cup tie at Chelsea last season before a short-term loan move to Truro City and made a number of appearances for the Southern League Premier Division South side before returning to The City Ground.

 “George is a young goalkeeper with a lot of potential,” said Stags’ manager Nigel Clough.

“Seamus McDonagh, our goalkeeping coach, has worked with him before at Forest and speaks highly of him.

“Being involved day-in-day out with a good, League Two first team squad will only benefit his development.

“He’ll probably start out as a number two goalkeeper but we want him to really push for the number one spot.

“He’s not come to sit on the bench. He’ll have some games in the EFL Trophy and fixtures like that.”
