ALFRETON TOWN 2, FOREST GREEN ROVERS 1
Saturday Apr 20, 2013
Alfreton Town ended the 2012/13 season on a high note with a deserved 2-1 home win over Forest Green Rovers to clinch a magnificent Blue Square Bet Premier Division final finishing position of 13th.
The Reds dominated the first half and opened up a two-goal lead through fine strikes from Josh Law from 20 yards on nine minutes and Nathan Arnold from 12 on 37.
Forest Green reduced the arrears on 55 minutes through a Jamie Turley header from a corner but despite the visitors having more possession in the second half, Alfreton did more than enough to claim the points.
The attendance was 759 including approximately 33 from Gloucestershire and the Reds man of the match was Josh Law.
Thanks go to everyone for a tremendous season which concluded with a total of 60 points, six more than were gained in the club's first season in non league's top flight.
