Mansfield Town sign giant defender Exodus Geohaghon with help of 12th Stag

MANSFIELD Town boss Paul Cox has snapped up giant defender Exodus Geohaghon on an emergency loan from Darlington until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old, who stands at 6ft 5ins tall, has arrived at Field Mill with the help of the 12th Stag, who have donated £7,000 towards his wages.

Exodus recently enjoyed a three-month loan spell with League Two Dagenham & Redbridge. He has also enjoyed stints at Kettering Town, Peterborough United and Rotherham, amongst other clubs.

Speaking about signing the highly rated defender, manager Paul Cox said: “Exodus will be a good addition to our squad. He will bring size and presence and will be a commanding figure in defence.

“We needed to act quickly after John Dempster’s return to Crawley following his loan spell, but I am sure Exodus will fill the hole left by John.

“Thank you very much to the 12th Stag for enabling us to sign a player of this calibre,” he added.

Said 12th Stag co-ordinator Paul Nyland: “Many thanks to the supporters who have contributed to 12th Stag since its inception, to make this happen.”
