Reds snap up free scoring striker from AFC Rushden & Diamonds

Alfreton Town are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Nabil Shariff from AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

Nabil joins us for the 2017/18 season.

Shariff joined the Diamonds in January 2016 from Daventry Town and was a player which started out in the now sadly defunct former Rushden & Diamonds.

Nabil made an excellent impression with his appearances for R&D FC in the 2010-11 season, when he made his league debut, initially with a number of substitute appearances, and after he had opened his goalscoring account he was given a first league start in April 2011, scoring three goals in his first two full games in the North East. He also started the final game played by R&D FC. 

After leaving Nene Park, he played for a number of clubs, including Tamworth, Banbury United, Corby Town and Stamford AFC, before signing for Daventry. 

Since making his debut for the new AFC Rushden and Diamonds in April 2016, Nabil played 73 games for the club, scoring 40 goals. He has managed 14 goals in 18 appearances so far this season.

Reds Boss John McDermott on the signing of Shariff:

"He is an excellent addition for us, lots of pace and has good strength about him. He has a mixture of everythign and he is good on the ball. He wants to take players on and he wants to score, he's the player who will get himself hurt if it means scoring a goal."

"He was a threat over the two legs when we played them in the FA Cup and we kept our eye on him. The situation came about where we could sign him and we took it, we are all delighted."

"He will add pace going forward for us and he will come into the squad for Saturday."
