Mansfield Town have announced the signing of former Luton Town goalkeeper Marek Stech on a two-year contract. The 30-year-old goalkeeper is Mansfield Town’s third signing of the summer after they previously added strikers Jamie Reid and Jordan Bowery.

Vital Part at Previous Club

The 6’5″ stopper played a crucial role in Luton’s promotion to League One in 2017/18, a season in which he was named in the PFA Team of the Year.

In the same campaign, the former West Ham United goalkeeper kept 15 clean sheets in 42 appearances.

Previously, the 30-year-old enjoyed a year three spell with Sparta Prague, which included winning the Czech Supercup.

Stech earned his first promotion in England with Yeovil Town, helping the Glovers to promotion from League One and later playing in the Championship.

Stech is a Quality Goalkeeper

“Marek is a top goalkeeper who has presence, stature and a great pedigree,” manager Graham Coughlan told the club website.

“I’ve been chasing him for 12 months, so to finally land him is a big relief.

“Obviously, being promoted with his previous club shows the experience that he has amassed.

“Along with our goalkeeping coach, Seamus McDonagh, they will drive the goalkeeping department and help our younger goalkeepers grow and develop.”

Mansfield Town’s Recruitment Has Been Excellent

The first signing for Mansfield Town came as they signed ex-MK Dons player Jordan Bowery, who can provide some experience at League Two level.

A few days later, Jamie Reid signed for the Stags with the striker having played for the likes of Exeter City and Torquay United.

His goalscoring record for Torquay speaks for itself, being the top goalscorer for them in two seasons, which lured Mansfield Town into signing the player.

The signings will keep on coming for the Stags as they look to recruit new players after releasing 11 players at the end of the 2019/20 season.
