Alfreton Town Statement
Thursday Jan 5, 2017
Alfreton Town Football Club would like to comment on the events concerning Adam Smith.
Firstly, the club had no knowledge of Adam’s past activities thus the current contextual situation does not affect ATFC.
Adam has been fully co-operational in ATFC’s brief investigation which saw the Club meet with the player about the issue. Adam explained the details fully and showed great remorse over his actions which happened 13-14 months ago. Adam made clear that the events were far behind him and he has been grateful for a second chance at redeeming his career.
ATFC would also like to stress that the events which Adam was involved with took place when the player was not an Alfreton Town footballer, thus the club cannot comment on events which did not immediately or subsequently effect the club’s position and reputation. Therefore, it was agreed that ATFC support the player.
ATFC would also like to emphasise that the club does not support fraud or any kind of fraudulent activity, the Club will continue to support Adam through this period.
ATFC will be making no further statements on this issue.
