Following the Stags trip to Malta last week, Paul Cox's men returned to the UK and were beaten by Evo-Stick neighbors Worksop Town 4-1 at Sandy Lane.
The Stags side included four trialists, two of which were strikers, and only seven players from the title winning squad from the previous season.
Leon Mettam put the hosts ahead on 21 minutes before Tom Denton netted the second shortly after the hour mark. A communication error between Dempster and new keeper Ian Deakin gifted the hosts a comical third on 88 minutes before substitute Tom Mullen completed the rout in the final minute. Trialist Jordan Roberton netted for Stags.
