Reds complete Shiels signing

Friday Jun 2, 2017

Alfreton Town are pleased to announce the signing of Luke Shiels from Harrogate Town.

Luke, a strong and tall centre back has penned a two year deal with the Reds.

Shiels made his move to Harrogate in 2014 from Worksop Town and played an influential role in his first season at Harrogate, forming a formidable defensive partnership with Danny Ellis. However an injury to his knee in December 2015 resulted in a lengthy spell on the side lines for Luke.

Reds Boss John McDermott spoke to Amar Sharma about his second summer signing:

“I know Luke very well from my time at Harrogate and he is another perfect player for us and for what I want to do and achieve. He is very well thought of and Luke chose us over extending his deal at Harrogate.”

“He was one of my first targets and is a great centre half, he’s aggressive, powerful and composed on the ball. He is a real winner and wants to be successful, he’s still at a good age and he has excellent character.”

“We want our core to be solid and with Dizza signing for us and now Luke, we have two very strong signings, two players who will form our core and it’s about getting the correct players for our club. It is definitely a signal of intent that we want to challenge and not be where we ended up last season. It’s two excellent and perfect signings for us, and more are on the way when we officially complete deals.”
