Reds confirm Cox signing

Reds confirm Cox signing

Monday Jul 10, 2017

Alfreton Town are delighted to confirm the signing of Oli Cox.

Oli has signed a one year deal with an option for a further year.

Cox was involved with the Reds last season and made one start and 3 appearances as a substitute as the Reds acquired the defender from Swanwick Pentrich Road on dual registration.

However Oli now joins the Reds with a view to moving out on loan to gain valuable minutes and experience.

Reds Boss John McDermott was pleased to have re-signed Oli:

“I’m very pleased to have re-signed Oli, he has been excellent so far, he is training with us and he played very well against the Forest Under-23’s on Saturday. He came into the game well and defended well especially in the second half.”

“We had lots of trialists out again on Saturday but I felt he handled the game well and soaked up pressure in the second half. I was happy with our overall performance, we restricted them to limited chances and created plenty ourselves despite the result.”

“Oli will move out on loan to gain experience which will be important for him.”

The Reds are next in action with the visit of Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow evening, 7.30pm kick off. This fixture is also a testimonial match for Nicky Law and Russ O’Neill.
