REDS LOOKING TO FINISH IN STYLE
Wednesday Apr 23, 2014
Alfreton Town bring the curtain down on an eventful season of further progress in non league’s top flight with a home game against Macclesfield Town at the Impact Arena this Saturday.
Reds manager Nicky Law will be aiming for his side to end the campaign with a flourish and if a fourteenth home win of the campaign can be achieved, it could see the club finish as high as eighth in the final table, a best ever position in the Skrill Premier having finished fifteenth and thirteenth in their first two seasons in the division.
Despite occupying a play-off place for a number of months towards the end of the season, a top ten finish would still be regarded as a major achievement for the club who returned to part-time status only last summer.
Macclesfield arrive in sixteenth place in the table and the Reds will also have the chance of a fourth league double of the season following a 1-0 Alfreton win in Cheshire way back on September 14th thanks to a Daniel Meadows goal on 26 minutes.
Striker Job Ayo Akinde will have more reason than most to want a successful end to the campaign as he closes in on the 20-goal mark for the season in the league.
The powerful target man has been in outstanding form of late and has scored in all of Alfreton’s last six league games to take his tally so far to 18 league goals, 19 in all competitions, with one game to go.
Supporters should note that the last game of the season, along with all other Conference Premier fixtures on the day, kicks-off at the later time of 5.30pm.
It is also the final ‘Kids For A Quid’ game of the season with junior supporters aged under-16 able to gain admission for just £1 providing they are accompanied by an adult.
Following Saturday’s game, the ATFC Supporters’ Player of the Season award will be presented and the ATFC Supporters’ Association will also be making their annual ALF awards presentations to a host of unsuspecting players and fans.
