Strong striker Jason Bradley has today signed a one year deal with us, making him David Holdsworth's 12th signing of the close season.

The 20 year old has been on trial with us for a month and played in Saturday's 2-0 victory at Newport County.

Bradley began his career at Sheffield Wednesday and was loaned out to Unibond Premier outfit Buxton during season 2007/08 where he netted 18 goal in 16 appearances, becoming their leading scorer.

After leaving Wednesday, he was quickly snapped up by Darlington and has now joined us after a four week trial.

He told mansfieldtown.net shortly after signing: "The month has gone very well and I am very pleased to sign. I have come here to fight for my place. I know I need to prove myself.

"I am a big, quick, strong and direct forward. I like to make it a torrid 90 minutes for opposing defenders and most importantly -get on the scoresheet."

Bradley used to watch us regularly as a youngster being close friends with Liam Lawrence.

He will compete with Rob Duffy, Kyle Perry, Rob Duffy and Jake Speight for a starting place and made his first appearance as a substitute in the 2-0 win at Newport on Saturday.
"I had no doubts about dropping out of the League to join a club like Mansfield," said Bradley.
"They are really on the move and looking to get back into the Football League and I want to be part of that."
