Squad number: 21
Date of birth: October 31st, 1989
Joined Alfreton Town: August 9th, 2012
Highly-rated striker Ben joined Alfreton on a two-year deal from Blue Square Bet Premier Division rivals Macclesfield Town for an undisclosed fee just two days before the 2012/13 season.
Macclesfield signed him from Worksop Town in the summer of 2012 where he had been a prolific goalscorer. The fee was in the region of £30,000 which took him from the Tigers to Macclesfield last summer and he was the Silkmen's leading scorer with five goals by the end of October with five including the fastest-ever Macclesfield Town goal in 6.4 seconds against Morecambe.
He unfortunately then fractured his ankle and was out for nearly four months before coming back for an injury crisis and suffered a relapse after just 45 minutes. He came back in for the final few games of the season and scored at Northampton but wasn't fully fit and struggled before a change of manager saw him slip back out of the running.
He ended last season with six goals but only played half of the campaign and played half of that at well under full fitness.
