Promising young goalkeeper joins Stags on loan...
Notts County can confirm that promising young goalkeeper Liam Mitchell has joined Mansfield Town on a one-month loan deal.
Mitchell, who came through the youth ranks at Meadow Lane, before winning a professional contract ahead of the 2011.12 season, has previously spent time on loan at Tamworth and will look to benefit from further first team action at Field Mill over the coming weeks.
Mansfield boss Paul Cox has been in the market for a new custodian since both his first choice goalkeeper, Alan Marriott, and understudy Shane Redmond suffered training ground injuries this week.
And 20-year-old Mitchell fits the bill for the Blue Square Premier outfit, going straight into the squad for the visit of Hereford United on Saturday.
The loan deal, which was finalised on Friday, runs until Saturday 27 October, the day after Mansfield’s trip to Dartford, and we will bring you updates of his progress here on the club’s official website.
