Teen couldn't be in a better place

Mansfield Town's coaches are hailing Frickley Athletic for their work in the development of Teddy Bloor after allowing the defender to carry on playing in the EVO-STIK League until the end of the season.

The League Two club's U21s boss Mike Whitlow praised the EVO-STIK League South's Blues on Tuesday after the Stags sanctioned the extension of the 18-year-old defender's stay at Westfield Lane.

The former Brighton & Hove Albion youngster, pictured, is primarily a right-back but can also operate in midfield and Whitlow said: “We are really pleased with Teddy’s progress since he joined Frickley on loan. He is really enjoying his time with Frickley, the staff and players have helped him settle in well and he feels part of the team.

"He is playing well and getting a great experience in an excellent environment created by the coaching staff. We are delighted that he will be staying with Frickley for the remainder of the season."

Bloor has been a big success since arriving from the Stags and Blues manager Spencer Fearn told the club's fans he was delighted to be able to hold on to the player for the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign.

Fearn said: “Teddy has been a very important player for us and we are really pleased that we have him until the end of the season. He has a tremendous work rate and has chipped in with some very important assists and goals.

"A huge thank you again to Mike Whitlow and Richard Cooper at Mansfield Town for making this possible, it’s really appreciated by all of us at the club.”
