Operating as usual


Here are the results from our Juniors fixtures last Sunday apologies for posting late.

U12s Orange
Chesterfield 3-3 Mansfield ⚽️⚽️⚽️ Jess
Mansfield 0-6 Bradford City

This team played a player down & had no subs, they all ran their hearts out & sadly ran out of steam. But my team of the day.

U12s Blue
Hillsborough White 3-3 Mansfield ⚽️⚽️ Dylan ⚽️ Jayden
Hillsborough Orange 2-3 Mansfield ⚽️⚽️ Jayden ⚽️ Ryan

A good start for this team, equal second in the league but still a very long way to go.

U16s Orange
Chesterfield 4-1 Mansfield ⚽️ Aden
Mansfield 1-4 Bradford ⚽️ Aden

This team was another who was very short of players & no subs, they battled all day. So very proud of you all, shout out for Captain Lottie who was immense.

U16s Blue
Rotherham Utd 2-12 Mansfield ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️ TJ ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️ Croomey ⚽️⚽️ Rhys ⚽️ Jake
Bradford City 3-3 Mansfield ⚽️ Rhys ⚽️ Jake ⚽️ TJ

A good start from this team, with some lovely football shown.

Like I said previously, a truly fantastic display by all players & we are so proud & hopefully we will be at full strength for the next fixtures.
Next up for Mansfield Town Ability Counts is the Adults with our higher level teams in action at Sheffield this Sunday.


Just a polite reminder there will be no junior or wildcats sessions on the 1st of october as we are away at with our junior teams we will be back on sunday the 8th october

🏆 Joel Smedley Award 🏆

This went to Tommy.
Tommy was really impressive tonight, again, from the start of the session to the match at the end. I dont think Tommy stopped running for the whole hour, his range of passing was excellent, he also held the ball up to allow others to get into the game, which was great to see.
Well done Tommy, keep up the good work 👏👏👏


⭐️ Adult Player of the Week ⭐️

This went to Ewan.
I've had the chance to coach this young man from the moment he came into our junior set up & hes gone from strength to strength, watching him transition up into our adult team has been a joy to watch.
Ewans awareness knowing when to get back, knowing when to get forward, pressing the ball & passing from the back was phenomenal.
Well done Ewan, keep up the good work 👏👏👏


⭐️ Adult Player of the Week ⭐️

This went to Jono.
From the moment we started the session to the match at the end, Jono was outstanding moving into space wanting to get onto the ball, looking for passes & looking to get a shot off on goal, when the chance came.
Fantastic work tonight Jono, keep up the good work 👏👏👏

This went to Ryan.
This monthly award went to Ryan, who has been an ever-present to training & his attitude has been exemplary.
His own game he has been solid, having a good voice on the pitch too, which is always a good thing. He has been oozing confidence of late.
But most of all the respect he has shown to other players whose abilities are lower, he has encouraged & helped them.
Well done Ryan 👏 👏👏


🏆🏆 Joel Smedley Award 🏆 🏆

This went to Ieuan.
Over time, from a young man who had never played football, Ieuan has just developed so much since he's been with us, we all knew about the shot power & his goals just amaze us.
But Ieuan has added a new dimension to his game, he is now chasing to win the ball & has quite a turn of pace, he seems to be following the game better , takes up positions to receive the ball.
Ieuan just keep doing what you are doing, the effort & improvement has been phenomenal.
Well done 👏 👏👏


⭐️ Player of the Week ⭐️

This went to Ewan.
Ewan attended his first adult session to help him transition from the Juniors.
Well, what a first session this young man had, he settled in like he had been training with the Adults years, he completed the drills with comfort.
During the game at the end, despite facing stronger & faster opponents than he's used to, as a defender he held the line well & made numerous tackles.
Slotted in really well Ewan 👏👏👏


⭐️ Player of the Week ⭐️

This went to Dan.
Dan was absolutely amazing this week during training, 100% effort put in, all the way through.

🏆🏆 Older Joel Smedley Award 🏆🏆

This went to T-Jay.
T-Jay has been with us from a young age, progressing up the age groups.
Not only has T-Jay progressed age groups, he has changed positions, he was in the net & what an excellent goalkeeper he was & is, however T-Jay fancied coming out of the nets to play midfield/striker, & we were happy to give him the opportunity.
He has worked hard & has shown great skills, dribbling, passing, tackling & even an eye for goal, a complete player in every position which for the zclub & his teammates this is a fantastic attribute to have.
Well done T-Jay 👏 👏👏


🏆🏆 Younger Joel Smedley Award 🏆🏆

Jack is another player who works so hard to improve his game.
Jack looks really comfortable on the ball, his passing & ability to run at opponents is pleasing to see, at a young age.

What a month Jude has had, he won an award the other week for his all round attitude & enthusiasm within training.

Hard work paying off, excellent work Jude 👏 👏👏


🏆 Player of the Month 🏆

This went to Caleb.
Caleb is another Player we are running out of superlatives for.
Caleb takes his Goalkeeping seriously, he is a fantastic shotstopper, not only is he a shotstopper but, he is brave. Caleb thinks nothing of coming out to feet on 1-1s, smothering the ball.
Just keep doing what you're doing Caleb, just awesome 👏👏👏


⭐️ Older aged Player of the Week ⭐️

This went to Dylan.
Dylan just goes about his business, no airs or graces. Just solid displays week in week out. A very dependable young man, you know what you're going to get, 100% effort, non stop running, always looking to pick a pass to bring teammates into play & last but not least, Dylan is willing to roll his sleeves up & do the dirty work, winning the ball back.
Excellent work Dylan 👏 👏👏

Jake has been with us a couple of weeks now & has really settled in well with the group.

This went to the Gaffer.
As chosen by Jude this went to the Gaffer for showing signs of gasping for breath frequently, for looking like Bambi on ice.
He was offered the defibrillator & some walking sticks at the end 🤣.
Despite all this, he had a smile on his face & even celebrated his goal like he was having some sort of seizure.
Well done Gaffer, must try harder though 👏 👏👏


🏆 Older Joel Smedley Award 🏆

This went to Jude.
The coach chose Jude this week, for his whole attitude this week. Jude was fantastic in the drills, showing great ball control & commitment to win the ball when out of possession.
In a fun game at the end against parents & coaches, he ran tirelessly & all with a smile on his face. He even cheekily nominated the Gaffer for an award 😂.
Fantastic Jude 👏👏👏


⭐️ Older age Player of the Week ⭐️

This went to Josh.
Well, we are running out of superlatives for this young man.
He wants to be the best & I seriously have no doubts that he will be the best, he just puts everything into his goalkeeping at training & fixtures.
During the small game at the end of training Josh wants to win & keep a clean sheet in the bargain, this is how ambitious he is. Some of the saves he pulls off, just leaves us in awe.
Just brilliant Josh 👏 👏👏


⭐️ Younger age Player of the Week ⭐️

This went to Ryan.
Ryan has just improved so much over the past weeks, his confidence, & whole game ethic has just soared.
In training he just gave everything this week & really impressed his coaches.

A great first session with us Liam, well done.


⭐️ Adult Player of the Week ⭐️

This went to Steven.
