Charlton Athletic boss pleased with George Lapslie’s loan impact at Mansfield Town
17 November 2020, by Richard Cawley

Lee Bowyer is delighted that George Lapslie is shining on loan at Mansfield - with the Charlton midfielder scoring in three successive matches.

The 23-year-old has netted three times in 54 appearances for the Addicks but already has that haul in just seven outings since making the switch to Field Mill.

Lapslie scored in Saturday’s 2-0 win at Forest Green Rovers.

“We always keep an eye on the lads who are away on loan,” said Charlton manager Bowyer. “George needed to go on loan and do what he’s doing - go and learn the game more by playing regularly.

“He is doing that and scoring goals. It’s really good for him. You want players to go and learn the game and then when they do come back they are in a better place with experience. It’s what we do with players who come to us.

“George deserves it. He’s a great lad who is hard working. He’s one of the those people you just want to do well.”

Lapslie has made 13 appearances this season - six of those for Charlton.
