GOALKEEPER MOONEY RECALLED BY YORK CITY
Friday Apr 3, 2015
TOM FLYNN IN LINE FOR DEBUT AT WREXHAM
Goalkeeper Jason Mooney has had his loan spell at the Impact Arena cut short by parent club York City who recalled him in time for him to be named on the Minstermen's bench for York's 1-0 home win over League Two relegation rivals Cheltenham Town on Good Friday.
City boss Russ Wilcox recalled Mooney after having number two keeper Bobby Olejnik pick up a red card against Mansfield Town last weekend which earned him a one-game suspension.
Mooney, 26, had played a major part in helping Alfreton climb out of the relegation zone and open up a six-point gap over their nearest rivals ahead of the Easter fixtures. He impressively kept five clean sheets in thirteen league appearances for Nicky Law's side.
Meanwhile, as one door closes, another one opens and goalkeeper Tom Flynn (pictured) who joined Alfreton on February 3rd on non-contract terms when George Willis's loan fom Sheffield United ended, will now make his Reds debut in the Vanarama Conference fixture at Wrexham on Saturday.
Former Cowdenbeath keeper Flynn, 24, began his career with Newcastle United’s Academy set-up before moving on to Scottish club Hibernian.
He had loan spells with both Albion Rovers and Alloa Athletic but has most recently been with Northern League club Consett AFC after being released by the Hibees.
Incredibly, Tom Flynn will become the eighth goalkeeper used by Alfreton during the 2014/15 season.
