Academy goalkeeper transferred to Leicester City

6 June 2023

Mansfield Town Football Club can confirm that a deal has been signed taking 14-year-old goalkeeper Freddie Marson to Leicester City.

Academy director Steve Hymas said: "Our very best wishes go to Freddie, and we will follow his career with interest.

“This is our first young player to sign for a higher-league football club since we became a Category 3 academy three years ago.

“We negotiated this move within the Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) compensation criteria, so it provides considerable funding to the club as well as a continuing financial interest in his progress, justifying our decision to restart the Academy."
