The Stags Reserves have been in action twice this week once in a behind closed doors freindly at Nottingham Forest going down 2 - 0 and last nights (Wednesday 15/1/2003) at Boothferry Park, 1 - 0 against a Hull side scattered with first team squad players, for the Avon Reserve League clash.

Stags were led up front by Danny Bacon, and the rest of the side was made up of the in form Stags Youth Team squad including first year trainees Alexander Baptiste, Andy Jones,Callum Lloyd and Peter Ryles all being involved.

Commitment and effort was in abundance from the young Stags despite results not going for them in both matches.
from mansfieldtown.net:
The Stags reserves lost 1-0 at Hull last night. The Stags fielded a team made up mainly of the youth team against a strong Hull City side made up from the professionals.
Despite a 1-0 defeat the young stags gave a good account for themselves which impressed Youth Coach Paul Holland and Boss Keith Curle. Curle said: "It was very pleasing to see these young scholars coming up against a squad of pros and dealing with it. I am delighted at the way the kids performed."
