Preview:Alfreton Town v Burton Albion

Wednesday Jul 25, 2018

The Reds will embark on their penultimate pre season outing this evening when an Burton Albion XI will provide the oppostion at the Impact Arena, kick off is 7.45pm. 

Alfreton will be eager to build on Saturday`s 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest Under 23. There was plenty to encourage the Reds faithful in an eye catching pre season contest. Alfreton held a 2-0 interval advantage thanks to goals from Tom Denton and James Clifton before two goals in a 3 minute spell during the second haf from Gboly Ariyibi and Arvin Appiah brought Forest on level terms.

 The Reds have gradually shown an increase in match sharpeness and fitness as the matches have progressed and with Brewers Boss Nigel  Clough having promised to bring a strong Burton XI tonight it promises to be another entertaining affair as the curtain raiser to the 2018/19 National League North campaign against Kidderminster Harriers on August 4th edges closer.


 A flurry of activity has welcomed the Reds during the close season with Billy Heath`s squad taking shape thoughout 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 2015/16 and FC Halifax during the 2016/17 season, via the play offs.

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

The Reds have also got their 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 seasonas we look for a strong campaign.
