Scott Returns To Stags

Basford United can confirm striker Josh Scott has returned to Mansfield Town following a loan spell.

The 20-year-old joined in August on a deal until December but following discussions with Stags officials, manager Steve Chettle says the striker needs more to be playing regular football.

“I spoke with Mansfield this week and both parties had agreed that Josh needs to be playing on a more regular basis,” he said.

“The decision was made to let him return to either play there, or potentially find another club elsewhere and gain the valuable experience he needs at the start of his professional career.

“He’s been a credit to himself, and Mansfield Town and we wish him all the best on future endeavours.”

Scott made his debut against Witton Albion two days after arriving at Greenwich Avenue but has since been limited to eight substitute appearances in all competitions.

Scoring once, his wonderful overhead kick at Warrington – capping an unforgettable come-from-behind victory last month – will live long in the memory of United fans for a long time.
