Louis Andrew Briscoe (born 2 April 1988) is an English footballer who plays for League Two club Mansfield Town. His playing position is primarily on the right wing, although he can play as a striker or on the left wing.

He started his career with Football League side Port Vale in 2005, but failed to make an impact and moved on to non-league Leek Town two years later. After brief spells with Hednesford Town, Gresley Rovers, Stafford Rangers, and Ilkeston Town, he won a move to Conference club Mansfield Town in 2009. He helped the club to an FA Trophy final and was named in the Conference Team of the Year in 2010–11. He then won the Conference National title with Mansfield in 2012–13.

Club career

Born in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, Briscoe began his career as a trainee at Port Vale. He made four Football League appearances for Vale, making his debut as a 17-year old in a 1–0 defeat to Bristol City at Vale Park on 17 December 2005. His three further League One appearances came later on in the 2005–06 season, after which he was voted Youth Player of the Year by the Port Vale management.[1] The following season he made just the one appearance, coming off the bench late into a 4–0 trouncing at League Two Hereford United in the FA Cup.

Manager Martin Foyle released Briscoe from his contract in January 2007.[2] He then joined non-league Leek Town, where he found regular football. He bagged a total of 17 goals in 38 Northern Premier League Premier Division games for the club, before departing in summer 2008 after the club suffered relegation.

The next season he played for a multitude of Northern non-league sides, playing a handful of games for Hednesford Town (in the Premier Division), Gresley Rovers (in Division One South), Stafford Rangers (in the Conference),[3] and Ilkeston Town (in the Premier Division).[4]

Briscoe played under David Holdsworth at Ilkeston, and when Holdsworth was appointed as manager of Mansfield Town in November 2008, he offered the young winger a chance to return to full-time football.[5] Briscoe signed with the "Stags" in January 2009,[4] and made his debut on 17 January against Crawley Town. He scored his first goal for the club against Ebbsfleet United on 7 April.[6] Fitting in well at the Conference National club, he made 38 appearances for in the 2009–10 campaign.

In November 2010 he signed a contract to keep him at Mansfield until May 2012.[7] He played 13 goals in 42 league games in 2010–11, though his most telling contribution would be in the FA Trophy, where he booked the club a place in the Wembley final with an extra-time goal against Luton Town in the semis.[8] Despite creating numerous chances for his teammates in the final itself, opponents Darlington triumphed with a 1–0 victory.[9] At the end of the campaign Briscoe was named in the Conference Team of the Year,[10] and was made Mansfield Town's Player of the Season. He scored a hat-trick in a 7–0 demolition of Barrow at Field Mill on 17 March 2012, completing his treble with a 25-yard volley.[11] The "Stags" reached the play-offs in 2011–12, before losing to York City at the semi-final stage.[12] Briscoe scored 11 goals in 40 games.

He scored eight goals in 44 appearances in the 2012–13 campaign, as Mansfield won promotion into the Football League as Conference champions. He was rewarded with a new contract of an undisclosed length.[13]

International career

While at Mansfield, Briscoe made his debut for England C, the team which represents England at non-league level. He scored in a 1–1 with Hungary Under-23's on 15 September 2009.[14]
