Mansfield have secured the services of three of our up and coming talent with new long-term deal signed today, which were confirmed on the Official Website.

Jack Thomas, who has captained the youth team, is now very much in the first-team picture after a loan spell away from the club and has even won a couple of Man of the Match awards too! The 18-year-old will be at the One Call Stadium until the summer of 2017.

His progress doesn’t surprise Adam Murray at all, with him doing ‘exactly what he knew he would do’ with him reaping the benefits of the hard graft that he’s put in physically with his technical ability also coming on.

‘I’ve been where Jack is now and probably seen the wrong side of things, as well as the good side, so I’ll manage him in my way and I’ll get the best out of him as I see it. I’ll be strict with him, but at the same time I`ll be fair, and he’ll be a great asset for the football club.’

Both 17-year-olds Joe Fitzpatrick, who also came through the youth set up and made his debut recently at Morecambe, and Corbin Shires, who has been out on loan most recently with Kidsgrove Athletic, have signed deals until the end of next season.

All have been challenged to keep progressing an prove their worth, if they do chances will come!
