Stags sign Danny Rose’s brother

Mansfield Town have signed utility player Mitchell Rose, the younger brother of Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose, from Ilkeston.

During a three-season spell at Rotherham, the 20-year-old, who can play in midfield or defence, completed loan moves with Stamford and Crawley Town and made a handful of first-season matches for the Millers.

Rose, who had a trial towards the end of last season with the Stags, said: “I’m happy to be here for the future to help the team push on to reach good things for next season.

“The gaffer [Adam Murray] and I had some positive conversations from my first few training sessions and they wanted to immediately get me into a reserves’ match to see what I was like.

“I had to be patient, bide my time and perform well when the opportunities were granted to me and I’ve thankfully been rewarded with a contract.

“I knew I had to be ruthless. As a young player you have to take your chances so I had to make sure I was the best player in training and in the games.

“The manager sold everything to me in terms of what he wants for young players at the club.

“It is a great stadium [at Mansfield] and with the plans the manager has moving forward, pushing for promotion, and with the talented players here I have come to know, I’m looking forward to being a part of the club,” he said.

After developing a reputation as a versatile contributor, Rose is happy to play in whatever position Adam Murray feels will benefit the team: “I’ve been able to play in a number of positions including midfield, right-back and centre-back on occasions but I’m here to help the team move forward.

“I’m always looking to improve my game in all areas because I think that is key for my development and contributing to the team.”

Speaking about the influence of his brother, Rose said: “I look to my brother for a lot of advice and watching him play and having the opportunity to watch Tottenham train always gives me the edge to want to work harder and be better, as that is ultimately everyone’s dream.”
