Mansfield Town have signed striker Liam Hearn following a successful trial period.

The 28-year-old, out of contract after leaving Grimsby in March, has put pen to paper a one-year deal.

Hearn told Mansfield's official website: "I've known the gaffer (Paul Cox) for a long time and I had my heart set on coming here last summer.

"But it didn't materialise and then this season I thought it would never happen due to my (cruciate) injury.

"My immediate targets are to have an injury-free season and score some goals. The fans can be a real force here and I'm hoping we can have some good times."
