Teenage midfielder Tyrese Sinclair has signed his first professional contract with Mansfield Town.
The 18-year-old spent two years with Stags’ under-18s, winning the EFL Youth Alliance title in the 2017-18 season, and has now signed a two-year contract.
Sinclair is best known for his threat from set pieces, and featured on several occasions for Stags’ reserves last term as a second-year scholar.
Following his impressive performances last season, Sinclair scooped the Academy Player of the Year award at the club’s 2019 awards dinner.
Manager John Dempster said: “Tyrese has been outstanding as a scholar. He’s somebody that we knew would need time, and he still needs that time to develop."
