Striker signs extended contract

29 October 2022

Mansfield Town striker Rhys Oates has signed a contract extension that will see him remain at One Call Stadium until June 2024, the club are delighted to announce.

The 27-year-old was Stags’ leading goalscorer last season, netting 12 times as Nigel Clough’s men produced a remarkable run of form to earn a place in the Sky Bet League Two play-off final at Wembley.

Oates’s game-time this term has been limited due to a pectoral injury sustained against AFC Wimbledon in mid-August.

The former Hartlepool man is continuing his rehabilitation and could return to action towards the end of next month.

After signing on the dotted line, Oates told “It’s an exciting time to be at the club and I’m buzzing to sign this new deal.

“By offering me this contract extension it shows that the club has a lot of faith in me.  

“It’s special for me to have been offered a new deal whilst I have an injury.

“It shows that the club expects me to come back and produce what I did before I got the injury.

“All the lads and staff are incredible to work with. Along with the fans, it makes it a great club to be at and play for.”
