Alfreton Town can confirm that we have today appointed Billy Heath, as new Reds boss.

Billy who has managed at North Ferriby United and Halifax Town, joins us alongside assistant Mark Carroll ahead of the new season which all gets underway again, starting with pre-season in July.

Heath has guided North Ferriby to two promotions, the first from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League in the 2012-13 season; Billy oversaw the Villagers F.A. Trophy success in the 2014-15 season after a 3-3 draw in normal time against Wrexham, Ferriby prevailed on penalties.

Heath won his second promotion which came in the 2015-16 campaign as North Ferriby beat AFC Fylde 2-1 in extra time in the Play Off final, which secured a place in the National League from the National League North.

Billy then made the switch to Halifax Town ahead of the 2016/17 season and he guided the Shaymen to promotion back to the National League after a 2-1 extra time win over Chorley in the Play Off final.

Heath then left Halifax in January 2018 by mutual consent.

Billy spoke with Amar Sharma after he was appointed Reds manager:

“Alfreton has always been a good club, I’ve known Wayne for a long time and there has always been a good feel to Alfreton when I’ve brought teams here, it’s very well run and the club has been successful in the past when they were in the Conference and it’s an exciting project here.”

“There was big expectations last season for the Club and as an outsider looking in last season, I thought Alfreton should have been higher up the table but It’s important for us to prepare during the summer, pre-season is paramount at any football club and you can imagine it’s hectic now!”

“We are planning pre- season and also deciding on the squad from last season. My message to the fans is that we want to bring success again to the club and get Alfreton back to where we think it should be. My teams always give 100% and are always hard-working. I am really pleased to be here and can’t wait to get started.”

Welcome to the Reds Billy Heath!
