In their final outing of six official pre-season games, Alfreton Town recorded their first friendly victory as they inflicted a first pre-season defeat on Chesterfield in a very good work out for both sides at the Impact Arena in front of 1,013 on Friday night.
The Reds took the lead on 44 minutes when man-of-the-match Nathan Arnold slotted home from 12 yards.
Chesterfield equalised on 65 minutes when a sudden burst of pace from Scott Boden through the middle set up Danny Whittaker and he curled home from the edge of the penalty area.
In an end-to-end second half Alfreton got the winner on 73 minutes when a back-pass from Terrell Forbes ended with substitute goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell only hitting his clearance into the path of an Alfreton trialist who despatched the ball from 16 yards.
