After being recalled to his parent club, he made his first-team debut for Mansfield against Boston in March 2007,[4] and was offered a new contract in May 2007.[5] He joined Boston United on loan in November 2007,[6] and then Gainsborough Trinity on loan in March 2008 until the end of the 2007–08 season.[7] He was released by Mansfield at the end of the 2007–08 season.[8]
