Four youth players make step-up to Mansfield Town first team squad

MANSFIELD TOWN are delighted to announce that youth players Joel Holland, Scott Rogers, Jobe Shaw and Adam Somes have been promoted to the first team.

Left winger Holland was a regular in the youth team’s starting line up last season, and can operate on either flank.

Lifelong Stags’ fan Scott Rogers won last season’s Jack Retter Award (Young Player of the Season) after a productive season in central midfield.

Ever present last term, youth captain Jobe Shaw is a commanding centre half who impressed during the young guns’ debut season.

Prolific striker Adam Somes bagged 24 goals in all competitions and made his debut for the first team during our FA Cup match at Fleetwood last November.

Manager Paul Cox told “These signings show our intent to produce good young players over the coming years for Mansfield Town.”
