Mansfield Town midfielder Stevenson joins Alfreton on loan

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 “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.
