Reds snap up Atkinson on Loan
Friday Mar 3, 2017
Alfreton Town are delighted to announce the signing of 22 year old defender Wes Atkinson from Notts County on a one month loan.
Wes was born in West Bromwich and has developed his career as a West Bromwich Albion youth graduate, he was handed a third-year scholarship deal in June 2013. In May 2013 Atkinson signed his first professional deal with West Brom, running until 2015; Atkinson featured reguarly for Albion's Under 21 side and soon landed a loan move to Cambridge United where Wes made his first professional appearance in a 0-0 draw with Shrewsbury Town.
At the end of the 2014–15 season, Atkinson was released by West Brom and joined Notts County on a one-year contract. Atkinson has made 17 appearances for the Pies but has also had loan spells at Eastleigh and most recently this season at National League side Gateshead where Wes made 8 appearances.
Atkinson's main position is a right back and he comes straight into the squad for tomorrow's home game with Stalybridge Celtic.
