By John Street

Stags Youth Team completed there early season competition, and went down to the Shrews at Forest Town on Thursday 5th February.

On a bobbly heavy pitch Stags started cageley and went behind when the lively Shrews picked up on the nervous Stags Centre back pairing of Rennals and Woods.

Stags eventually got there passing game back together and following good passing and movement involving Parks, Jones, Lloyd and Heron the ball came across goal for Arnold to fire into the roof of the net.

Stags went close on a couple of occasions through Hankey, and Heron without threatening seriously the Shrews goal.

Stags did boss the first half with Lloyd and Parks prompting forward but the second half was a reversed roles situation with the Shrews taking control and edging the game with a second half winner.

Team: Coates, Woods, Rennals, Holmes, Jones, Arnold, Parks, Lloyd, Hankey, Heron, CurleT.
Subs: Ryles, Manship.
