NICK IS SIGNING NUMBER SEVEN
Alfreton Town Football Club is pleased to announce their seventh signing of summer with goalkeeper Nick Draper penning a one-year contract.
Draper, 21, is a former Lincoln City, Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Grimsby Town goalkeeper who is a terrific shot stopper and who has impressed greatly in pre-season with the Reds.
Draper, who stands just shy of 6’2’’ was handed a professional contract whilst with the Imps and ironically made his debut against Alfreton aged just 17 when Joe Anyon was sent off after 38 minutes in an FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie at the Impact Arena back on October 29th, 2011.
Nick also played in the replay three days later which the Reds won 2-1 at Sincil Bank on November 1st.
They were his only two appearances for Lincoln and he was released at the end of the season, joining up with Scottish Premier League side Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
He made no appearances for Caley and was released, joining home town club Grimsby Town for the 2014/15 campaign where he was back-up keeper to James McKeown.
