REDS BRING IN BLADES KEEPER ON EMERGENCY LOAN

REDS BRING IN BLADES KEEPER ON EMERGENCY LOAN

Wednesday Dec 10, 2014

Following a shoulder injury to Sam Johnson which is likely to keep him out for up to three weeks, Alfreton Town have signed nineteen-year-old goalkeeper George Willis (pictured) on emergency loan until January 1st 2015 from Sky Bet League One side Sheffield United.

He is a product of United's Academy system, and was a regular for the Blades Under-21s last season, whilst he was also an unused substitute for the first-team on several occasions.

Described as a tremendous shot-stopper with excellent distribution skills, United boss Nigel Clough is keen to get the former England Youth international into a first-team environment to gain him some important experience.

He spent a month with Vanarama Conference North side Bradford Park Avenue recently and made his Alfreton debut in the 3-2 home win over Eastleigh.

Willis has been handed squad number one during his stay at the Impact Arena.

In a season blighted by bad luck and injuries, Willis incredibly became the sixth different keeper used by Alfreton before Christmas. Surely some sort of record?!
