CONTRACT REWARD FOR LINDON MEIKLE
Wednesday Jan 6, 2016
WITH REDS TO END OF 2016/17 SEASON
Alfreton Town have signed experienced winger Lindon Meikle on contract to the end of the 2016/17 season.
Meikle, 27, joined the Reds initially on a month's non contract basis on December 2nd, 2015 following his release by Macclesfield Town, and the contract is reward for his excellent displays including hitting the winner in a 2-1 victory at Tamworth on Boxing Day.
The Reds beat competition from Vanarama National League side Barrow for his signature and Reds manager Nicky Law said: "I am delighted to have signed Lindon and really pleased he has committed himself to the club. He has been a big part of our recent mini revival and hope he can continue in the same vein.
"He has fitted in well with the lads and I think it's a very good signing for us. I am also delighted that Wayne (Bradley) has backed the move."
Meikle joined Macclesfield in September 2015 from York City and made seven appearances for the Silkmen.
The hard working winger has a National League winners' medal with Mansfield Town for whom he made over 100 appearances during his time with them in both the Conference and League Two.
His performances during his first season with Mansfield earned him three England C caps in the 2011/12 campaign.
Lindon started his career at Eastwood Town, where he scored 22 goals in 87 appearances.
He joined York in July 2014 and added twenty-eight games to his tally without scoring
