STRIKER Jake Speight has returned to the One Call Stadium after agreeing personal terms with Mansfield Town this afternoon. The 26-year-old old has signed from Wrexham for an undisclosed fee and becomes the ninth new player to be signed by manager Paul Cox since the end of last season. Since his stay with the Stags in season 2009-10, where he scored 17 goals, the ex-Sheffield United trainee found the net on four occasions in 18 appearances for Bradford and bagged 24 goals for Wrexham last season.

Manager Paul Cox said: “By signing Jake, we have brought to the club a proven goalscorer at this level.

Last season at Wrexham he scored 24 goals in all competitions on the left of a three-man attack and will be aiming to better that record next season. “He comes to us with a strong mindset and high ambition,” he added.
