FT Carlton 1-0 Mansfield U23
Collins OG
Comment by Martin Shaw:
Very frustrating. Some decent approach play, but the final pass and the final shot was generally poor.

Notts Senior Cup Final
Carlton Town 1 Mansfield Town 0 (HT: 1-0)
Attendance: 448

report by Darren Shaw

Carlton won the game with an early goal in the 1st half when a cross by Khyle Sargent from the left skimmed off the head of Cody Collins and went in for a own goal. This seemed to rattle the young Stags and Nathan Caine picked up a yellow card. Mansfield's main threat in the 1st half was Jaden Charles, Josh Scott and Ryan Burke down the left. Charles put in some dangerous crosses and Burke had a shot saved after good play by Scott.

The Stags did create some chances in the 2nd half but did not take them. The final ball or shot let them down. Jaden Charles continued to be a threat down the left and flashed a couple of shots wide of the far post. George Cooper had a header scrambled away at the back post and Charles had another shot blocked on the goal line.

MOM: Jaden Charles

Well done to Carlton Town and former Stags, Aaron O'Connor and Tyler Blake. It is the 4th time Carlton Town have won the Notts Senior Cup. The last time they did it was in 2017 when I saw them beat Basford 4-1 at Meadow Lane.

Report: Carlton Town 1-0 Stags' U23s
mansfieldtown.net

Mansfield Town's U23s impressive cup run came to an end as the young Stags were edged out 1-0 by Carlton Town in the Notts Senior Cup final.

Cody Collins’ 12th minute own goal decided the contest at Basford United’s Greenwich Avenue.

Stags performed encouragingly against experienced opposition and created numerous goal scoring opportunities in a dominant second-half display.

Mansfield began well by drawing Carlton onto them and looking to strike on the counter. After Stags’ ‘keeper Marek Stech rolled the ball out to right-back Darien Wouchope, Josh Scott was played in behind the defence. However, the Stags’ striker knocked the ball narrowly wide of the bottom left corner having drawn Carlton ‘keeper Shaun Rowley from his line.

Carlton took the lead on 12 minutes after Khyle Sargent’s left-sided cross found the back of the Stags’ net after a touch from the head of Mansfield defender Cody Collins.

Stags reacted well by controlling the play in the moments after the opening goal to craft chances for themselves.

Just after the half-hour mark, Scott’s strong hold-up play allowed Ryan Burke to shoot from distance. After the Irishman’s effort was parried by Rowley, lurking Mansfield forward Nathan Caine came close to turning the ball over the line before a Carlton defender intervened.

Mansfield’s best chance of the opening 45 minutes came after a corner delivery dropped inside the Carlton box a minute before the break. Scott was able to direct a powerful shot goal wards but his dangerous effort was prevented by a Carlton body on the goal line.

Mansfield restarted the second half brightly by crafting numerous opportunities down the left side.

Stags’ left-winger Jaden Charles continued his strong performance by dictating much of the play in the second-half.

Charles came close to equalising for Mansfield on 58 minutes after the youngster wriggled into space on the left side of the box before flashing a shot wide of the bottom right corner with his left foot.

A minute later, Charles was in again on goal from the left wing. The Mansfield number 24 controlled the ball before again driving it narrowly wide of the bottom right corner.

The Stags continued to press for an equaliser as they penned Carlton inside their own half.

Mansfield came agonisingly close to an equaliser on 77 minutes after Keaton Ward’s corner was cushioned down by George Cooper’s head at the back post. However, the centre back’s effort was blocked and dealt with.

Three minutes later a Mansfield attack worked its way to Charles in the midfield, whose low driven shot inside the box was blocked on the goal line.

The young Stags never gave in and worked their experienced opposition hard until the final whistle. However, it wasn’t to be for Mansfield as the U23s’ impressive run in the Notts Senior Cup came an end.

STAGS U23 XI: Stech, Wauchope, Burke, Cooper, Collins, Carter, Charles, Ward, Scott (Deakin 76’) Law, Caine (Kruszynski 64’)

Experienced Carlton Town pip young Mansfield Town side in Notts FA Senior Cup final

Mansfield Town's U23s hopes of winning the club's first silverware of the season were dashed as they were edged out 1-0 by a more experienced Carlton Town side in the Notts FA Senior Cup final at Basford United’s Greenwich Avenue last night.

Cody Collins’ 12th minute own goal decided the contest, but Stags performed encouragingly against experienced opposition and created numerous goalscoring opportunities in a dominant second-half display.

It was the first time Stags had reached the final of this competition since 1935 when the reserves lost 3-1 to Notts County Reserves on Sutton Town's ground, and the last time the club lifted the trophy was when their reserves beat Forest Reserves 3-2 on Newark Town's ground in 1932.

Mansfield, including first team squad regulars Marek Stech and Jason Law, began well by drawing Carlton onto them and looking to strike on the counter.
