Charlton Signing Confirmed

Stags have confirmed the signing of left back of Asa Charlton from Redditch Utd, and is now expected to make his first team bow in the home clash with Peterborough Utd this coming weekend.


Mansfield manager Peter Shirtliff has signed defender Asa Charlton from Conference North side Redditch United on a short-term deal

Charlton, 28, had been training with the Stags all week after being approached by Shirtliff in pre-season.

He told the Redditch Advertiser: "I went there for a couple of days and thought it would be good for my fitness.

"I played in a reserve game and that was it.

"I heard nothing for a few months but then the manager asked me to go back and play another game. But the call came out of the blue, it was a total shock to be honest as I never expected anything to come of it."
