STAGS’ midfielder Lee Stevenson has joined Alfreton Town on a month’s loan.
The 27-year-old has made just one appearance for Mansfield this season, away at Gateshead, but has been hindered by a foot injury for most of the campaign.
Manager Paul Cox told www.mansfieldtown.net: “Lee has just come back from injury and hasn’t played a lot of football this season. It was a hard one [to let him go] but he needs sharpness and match fitness, and he won’t get that by playing behind-closed-door games.
“The loan is in both Lee’s interests, and the club. He’ll come back with a fresh impetus.”
Stevenson will not be allowed to play for Alfreton against the Stags on Saturday 22nd October and is not FA Cup tied.
