LAST HOME GAME OF SEASON DEFEAT FOR OFF-COLOUR REDS
Alfreton Town fell to a 3-0 defeat against Stockport County in their last home outing of the 2015/16 Vanarama National League North.
John Marsden fired the visitors into a 27th minute lead with a 12-yard shot and although it took two late goals on 85 from Richard Brodie and Marsden's second of the game on 87 to finally kill off the Reds, Nicky Law's side were well-beaten.
The defeat was a ninth from 21 games on home soil as Alfreton succumbed to another league double with the only real bonus of the day being the attendance of 837 which included 264 visiting fans.
After the game, two presentations were made with goalkeeper Matt Duke being presented with the ATFC Supporters' Player of the Season by Colin Thornton and Dan Bradley being presented with the Ripley & Heanor News readers' Player of the season by Councillor John Walker.
