Joe Cheeseman signs on under the watchful eye of Chairman Andy Saunders

Clay Cross Town 1-2 AFC Mansfield

The Bulls continued their pre-season with a 2-1 win at Clay Cross on Tuesday night.  Manager Rudy Funk used the opportunity to look at some of the emerging talent from the U21 squad.  No fewer than 10 players were in the squad for the game, with 6 starting the match.

Clay Cross went in front midway through the 1st half but The Bulls stamped their authority on the game in the 2nd half with goals from Brett Lucas and Declan Brewin.

Again, another good run out for both sides with some excellent football played.

AFC Mansfield now have just 1 more friendly before the start of the season, a home game this Saturday against Belper Town from The Evo-Stik League.  Kick-Off is 3pm.

Coalville Town 1 - 0 AFC Mansfield

The Bulls suffered their first defeat of pre-season when they went down 1-0 to a very good Coalville Town side.


The Ravens took the lead after just 4 minutes when Jason White saved an initial shot only to see the ball fall kindly to Alex Dean who rifled the ball into the roof of the net from 10 yards.

Coalville's slick passing game made it difficult for The Bulls but gradually they forced themselves into the game.

The 2nd half was a flurry of substitutions and AFC got stronger as the game went on.  There were a lot of positives to take out of the game for both sides.

AFC Starting XI: White, Lucas, Dudley, Allott, Timons (C), Naylor D, Williams, Buxton, Naylor J, Mitchell, Ghaichem.  Subs used: Brewin, Wilson, Cheesemond, Marriott, Holloway
