Preview: Alfreton Town v Nottingham Forest U23

Friday Jul 20, 2018

Next up for the Reds on our pre season schedule is the visit of Nottingham Forest Under 23s to the Impact Arena tomorrow afternoon, kick off is 3pm.

After a professional win over Buxton on Tuesday night which saw a goal from Craig King and an own goal in the first half, followed by a classy Curtis Bateson goal in the second period; secured a routine win over an experimental Buxton outfit.

The Reds have gradually shown an increase in sharpness and fitness as the matches have progressed and the joy of a first win during pre season will be a feeling the squad will be looking to build on heading into tomorrow's encounter. The Reds looked solid at the back and fluid up front against the Bucks, but the test of Forest will see Alfreton look to test themselves again at both ends of the park. 

A flurry of activity has welcomed the Reds during the close season with Billy Heath's squad taking shape throughout the months of May and June.

Heath has already won promotion from the National League North with two different sides in North Ferriby United in the 2015/16 season as well as at Halifax in the 2016/17 season, via the play offs.

A host of new players have arrived at the Impact, many of which Billy Heath has previously managed as the boss moulds his squad into a team to challenge and certainly improve on last term.

The Reds have also got business done early and before pre season with signings full of quality and intent for the season ahead.

Excitement has been building throughout the close season as we look for a strong campaign.
