Stags into Notts Senior Cup Final

28 April 2022

Stags’ under-23s secured their place in the Notts Senior Cup Final with a 7-1 win against Newark last night (Wednesday).

Goals from Nathan Caine, Jaden Charles and Josh Scott put Mansfield Town 3-0 up at half-time.

Newark were able to get a goal back at the start of the second-half, but further strikes from Jason Law, Scott and Caine saw the amber and blue claim a 7-1 victory which puts them into the final of the competition.

The Stags will face Carlton Town at Basford United’s ground, Greenwich Avenue, with a date to be confirmed.

Academy manager Richard Cooper said: “The match was another great experience for our younger players, in a semi-final against a men’s first team.

“We’ve now had three rounds of the competition and the lads have taken to it well.

“It was good also to have players like Keaton Ward and Jason Law amongst our younger players, to add their experience on the field, and also the reassuring, calm presence of Marek Stech in goal, behind a young back four.

“It’s a good experience for our players and gives them the opportunity to see what men’s football is all about. It is demanding – physically, technically and tactically.

“Our younger players are learning minute by minute on the pitch and we look forward to pitting our wits against Carlton in the final.”

STAGS XI: Stech, Wauchope, Burke (Kruszynski 60), Collins, Cooper (Pitts 70), Ward, Carter, Law, Scott (Abdullah 80), Caine, Charles

UNUSED SUBS: Deakin, Turner
