Goalkeeper Elliott signs as Reds conclude with 16 arrivals

Thursday Jul 20, 2017

Alfreton Town are pleased to announce the signing of goalkeeper Chris Elliott from Harrogate Town.

Chris pens a one year deal with the Reds and is the 16th and final signing of the summer.

Elliott came through the Bradford City Academy and gained his first professional deal in 2010. He then had spells with Harrogate Railway and Harrogate Town in 2011.

A venture to Scandinavia followed with a two year spell with Swedish side IFK Holmsund from 2011-2013, this was followed by a switch to Boden BK for the 2014/15 campaign. A third spell followed at Harrogate Town for the 2015/16 season before Chris returned once more last season in February 2017.

John McDermott was pleased to have signed Chris for the upcoming season:

“I know Chris well from my time at Harrogate; he came in then as a number two and pushed himself for the number one spot which he took.”

“He’s a very experienced lad, very agile, excellent fitness and a great natural shot-stopper. He likes to dominate his box, his distribution is excellent and his kicking has really impressed me.”

“We now have two keepers with Mason signing a few weeks back; we have competition all over the park now, excellent depth. Chris has great self-belief, if he makes a mistake he’ll forget about it very quickly. I’m delighted, we look very strong.”
