GOALKEEPER IS NUMBER ONE PRIORITY
Thursday May 31, 2012
Alfreton Town chairman Wayne Bradley intimated this week that the club's number one target is a goalkeeper.
The list of requirements for the new season became one more longer last weekend when last season's out of contract top scorer Nathan Jarman moved to Chester FC.
However, the Reds chief is expecting plenty of movement on the incoming side in the next few weeks.
"We are deep in negotiations with experienced players at this level, with several targets we have had since last year" explained Bradley.
"We are looking to complete the signing of a goalkeeper as a priority and we have three targets for that position. We are looking to secure two in the hope we can encourage them to battle it out for the number one spot.
"There are some big boots to fill with the success we had with the loan of Jon Stewart at the end of last season."
The departure of Jarman leaves manager Nicky Law with the need to add at least two more strikers to his squad.
"It is the quiet time unless you have already got your man. In our time-honoured tradition, we won't be naming new players until the ink is drying on the paper" added Bradley.
"It is the pounds, shillings and pence, quality and square pegs going into square holes we are trying to sort.
"We want to add competition in the strikers berth and add some quality in the middle of the park."
Meanwhile, Alfreton fans will be seeing red next time they go down to the Impact Arena with the club set to splash more colour at the stadium.
The Reds have purchased a complete section of 500 red seats from the landlord of the Rockingham Road ground, the former home of Kettering Town.
"The seats, have been purchased at a price that is sensible and a fraction of the cost instead of buying new ones" added Bradley.
They will be installed at the Bentley Close end of the ground, replacing the blue seats which were installed several years ago.
Once installed, the seats will give the vast majority of the stadium a sea of red look.
The blue seats are being earmarked to replace some of the well-worn black ones in the Tom McRoy stand.
