REDS BRING IN STAGS STRIKER SPEIGHT ON LOAN
Friday Oct 11, 2013
Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law has brought in former Bradford City and Wrexham striker Jake Speight in on a month's loan from League Two neighbours Mansfield Town.
Speight, 28, will be with the Reds until November 12th, 2013, inclusive.
He began his career with Sheffield United before being loaned out to Leigh RMI after which he went on to play for Scarborough, Bury, Northwich Victoria, Farsley Celtic, Droylsden and Mansfield Town.
A £25,000 transfer followed to Bradford City where he signed on a two-year deal before moving to Wrexham for whom he scored a hat-trick against the Reds in a 4-1 win at the Impact Arena on August Bank Holiday Saturday, 2011.
A move to Wrexham came in June 2011, again on a two-year deal, but after scoring 21 goals in 38 appearances for the Welsh club, he was transferred to Mansfield one year later to be nearer his Sheffield home.
He was part of the 2012/13 season Stags' title-winning squad but missed the second half of the campaign due to a knee injury.
Jake has been handed squad number 11 and he goes straight into the team for Saturday's game at Gateshead.
