Mansfield Town have signed former Swindon Town forward Blair Sturrock until the end of the season.

Sturrock, 28, is the son of Plymouth Argyle boss Paul and had been a free agent after being released by the Robins in May.

Boss David Holdsworth told the club website: "I'm delighted to get Blair on board. He is a natural goalscorer who has played at a very high level."

The club have also signed left-back Joe Lamplough, 19, on non-contract terms.

Lamplough was a regular for Hull City's reserve side last season.

Sturrock, 28, had loan spells at both Bournemouth and Torquay United last season, scoring twice in 24 games.
