VIDEO - Stags back in pre-season training

MANSFIELD Town players were back in training yesterday as they prepare for the new Blue Square Premier League season.

Paul Cox’s men have been installed as second favourites by the bookies after coming so close with last season’s play-off semi-final defeat.

After what seemed a very short summer break, the squad assembled at the club’s new Spider Park training facility in Mansfield where they were put through their paces in a very tough opening session.

The players included several trialists.

Paul Cox was today hoping to add former Stags striker Jake Speight to his squad if a deal can be agreed with Wrexham.
