His season was capped off in perfect style by picking up the Academy Player of the Season award at the club’s Annual Awards Dinner.
Blake formerly turned out for Nottingham Forest as a schoolboy, before joining the Stags at the age of 16.
Last season, he spent a large amount of time on loan with Corby Town and most recently Mickleover Sports, where he scored nine goals in fifteen appearances including against the Gladiators.
