Taft departs on loan
mansfieldtown.net, Mon 29 Jan 2018

We can confirm that defender George Taft has rejoined fellow Sky Bet League Two side Cambridge United on loan until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old initially joined the U's on Deadline Day in August and went on to play 11 times for Shaun Derry's side, helping to keep six clean sheets.

The former Burton Albion man returned to One Call Stadium upon the completion of his loan earlier this month, but has found it difficult to break into a backline which boasts one of the best defensive records in the division.

Manager Steve Evans said: "George had a terrific spell at the back end of his loan last time with Cambridge United so it made sense that they signed him again.


"George is a good player, there is no doubt he strengthens Shaun Derry's team.

"He goes with our best wishes. He is a real good professional who was liked and respected by all of us."
