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 www.mansfieldtown.net: “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.”
