Mansfield land highly rated midfielder

15 January 2023

Mansfield Town are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Louis Reed from Swindon Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old has penned an 18-month contract at the club.

An Academy graduate at Sheffield United, Stags’ manager Nigel Clough gave Louis his first team debut aged just 16 in 2014.

After four years at Bramall Lane, the playmaker joined Peterborough. Louis enjoyed three seasons at the Posh, making 69 league appearances in Sky Bet League One.

The midfielder joined Swindon Town in the summer of 2021. Louis was voted the Robins’ Player of the Season for 2021/22 by his teammates.

Making 67 appearances and scoring five times, Reed joins the Stags following a successful 18 months in Wiltshire.

Manager Nigel Clough said: “We’re extremely pleased that we’ve managed to sign Louis.

“He’s a player who we gave his debut to at 16 years old at Sheffield United and someone who we’ve maintained an interest in in the past few years.

“After losing Anthony Hartigan for the rest of the season, Louis comes in as a direct replacement.

“He’s a good footballer who knows his position on the pitch. He was one of the best midfielders in League Two last season and has experience in the league above as well.”
