In front of 595, the Reds, with eight new signings and a sprinkling of trialists in their squad, competed well but were ultimately undone by some fine finishing, particularly from Armand Gnanduillet who struck a first-half hat-trick on 15, 23 and 42 minutes to give last season's League Two champions a 3-0 interval lead.
Alfreton pulled a goal back through a trialist on 63 minutes but a Lathaniel Rowe-Turner own goal and a further addition to the scoresheet from Charlie Raglan brought a somewhat harsh-looking final scoreline.
This Saturday, Alfreton entertain Port Vale at the Impact Arena. Kick-off is 3pm and admission is £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and just £1 for children under 12 so long as they are accompanied by a paying adult.
