Want him for longer
Mansfield boss, Nigel Clough, has revealed that his side intend to extend his stay once he is fit again: “His loan deal was only until January, but it was always our intention to renew it. So as long as his injury is okay we’ll look to do that.”
Career to date
Forrester in from Alsager and joined Stoke’s academy at the age of six.
He has since risen up through the ranks and has been a regular for them at various youth levels over the past few years.
