Return for Stags’ youth policy?

AMBITIOUS Stags owner John Radford says he will look to resurrect the club’s youth policy.

Mr Radford, who has been owner for just 10 days, says a decision to bring back the Stags’ Centre of Excellence will be made by Christmas.

Meanwhile, Mr Radford will meet with health and safety chiefs to try and re-host Stags’ fans in the North Stand.

The news comes in answer to Stags’ fans questions in tonight’s match programme against AFC Wimbledon.

Meanwhile giant French defender Julian Cherel has signed for the club on non-contract terms.

The ex-Hartlepool centre half has signed initially until the end of the week.

The 27-year-old stands at 6ft 5ins and was initially brought in as cover for Chris Smith who has been suffering with illness recently.

Said David Holdsworth: “He is a talented player who has been training Oldham. I will assess Julian’s progress to see if he is worthy of a longer deal.”
