JOHN McGRATH JOINS ALFRETON TOWN
Saturday Aug 3, 2013
Alfreton Town have signed former Burton Albion and Tamworth midfield man John McGrath on a one-year deal.
The experienced 33-year-old has been on trial with the Reds since being released by the Brewers for whom he made well over 200 appearances, although he finished the 2012/13 season on loan at York City.
He began his career with Aston Villa for whom he made two Premier League appearances. A loan spell at Dagenham & Redbridge followed before he moved to Doncaster Rovers. A loan spell at Shrewsbury preceded a move to Kidderminster Harriers before he moved on to Limerick - his birth town - and then joined Weymouth before going on to play 42 times for Tamworth.
John was capped five times by the Republic of Ireland at Under-21 level.
