ALL SQUARE AT ILKESTON
Sunday Jul 24, 2011
ALFRETON Town's third pre-season warm-up game ended all-square as the Reds were held to a 1-1 draw by the newly-formed Evo-Stik First Division South side Ilkeston FC.
The hosts took the lead on 18 minutes when Darryl Thomas hooked a shot home. Alfreton equalised on 32 minutes through man-of-the-match Jake Moult (pictured) but the Robins spurned the chance to retake the lead when a 35th minute penalty by Gary Ricketts was saved by Dan Lowson.
Alfreton return to the Impact Arena on Wednesday evening when they entertain Sheffield United. Kick-off is 7.45pm and admission is £8 for adults and £5 for concessions.
