Player Profiles - Jack Atkinson

Alfreton Town confirmed the signing of young goalkeeper Jack Atkinson back in May 2019.

Jack, 19, was mainly used for cover and competition for Steven Drench throughout the 2018/19 campaign, before Drench departed to Altrincham in late January.

Jack came through the youth set up at FC Halifax Town where he impressed enough for the under-19 side to be called up to train with the first-team on a regular basis in the second year of his scholarship.

The young stopper was crucial as the young Shaymen reached the National League U19 Alliance League Cup final, and played at Walsall’s Bescott Stadium as they lost to Chester.

Atkinson did feature for Bradford PA last season as he made his first start in a 3-0 loss at Stockport County in early January.
