Mansfield Town are delighted to announce that forward James Gale has signed a new contract with the club until the summer of 2024, with the option of a further year.

The 20-year-old joined Stags from Long Eaton United in September 2021 and has gone on to make 12 appearances for Mansfield in all senior competitions.

The frontman bagged his first goal for the club in August at home to Manchester City under-21s in the Papa Johns Trophy and has impressed in the amber and blue.


Speaking to iFollow Stags after putting pen to paper on an extended deal, James said: “I’m very excited.

“In the last year, I’ve been really getting involved with the team.

“I feel like I’m part of the squad now and just want to push on.”


James Gale told iFollow Stags:
"Nigel Clough is helping me with my hold-up play, one of the parts of my game where I wasn't great. I've developed a lot at that. And moving before defenders move and being sharp.
"I think I've done well in the games. It can be difficult when you get the odd 20 minutes here and there, but every time I've come on I've just given it my all and show people what I can do.
