In-de­mand Ma­hon to staick with Sara­cens

Gloucestershire Echo - - FOOTBALL -

» KAI Ma­hon’s per­for­mances for Chel­tenham Sara­cens last sea­son alerted the at­ten­tions of a host of higher level clubs.

But the left winger has opted to re­main at Peters­field Park for at least an­other year be­fore try­ing to make a step up the foot­balling lad­der.

Ma­hon, 22, has trained with other more se­nior sides in the county this pre-sea­son, but he has com­mit­ted him­self to Hel­lenic League Divi­sion One West side Sara­cens, who fin­ished as run­ners-up be­hind Eas­ing­ton Sports in 2018/19.

“I at­tended a cou­ple of train­ing ses­sions for other teams and tri­als, but de­cided my best op­tion was to play an­other sea­son for Sara­cens and think about next sea­son when it comes to it,” Ma­hon said.

“With the squad we have at the mo­ment and the man­age­ment of the team I feel con­fi­dent we can chal­lenge for pro­mo­tion.”

Sara­cens are man­aged by Ryan Bet­teridge and Stu­art Mitchin­son.

Ma­hon has pre­vi­ously played for An­dovers­ford, Bishop’s Cleeve Re­serves, Slim­bridge and Eve­sham United Un­der-18s. In youth foot­ball, he was with Lake­side and Sara­cens.

Out­side foot­ball, he works part-time in a pop­u­lar Chel­tenham night­club.

Sara­cens be­gin the 2019/20 sea­son at home to Tyther­ing­ton Rocks on Satur­day be­fore visit­ing New­port Pag­nell Town in the FA Cup ex­tra pre­lim­i­nary round a week later.
