Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law has agreed a new one-year rolling contract.

As the club prepares for a fourth straight season at non-league’s highest level, the Reds’ boss will be entering into an eighth consecutive campaign in charge at the Impact Arena.

And the 2014/15 season will also be a history-making landmark one for Law who will become the club’s longest ever serving manager in December, when he will surpass Jim Bullions – who also played in the 1946 Derby County FA Cup final team.

Bullions managed the Reds for seven-and-a-half years from 1961 to September 1968.

Chairman Wayne Bradley commented: “We are delighted Nicky has agreed to carry on the excellent foundations he has built at the club which have seen us make very good progress in the Conference Premier division for the last three seasons.

“His decision means it is business as usual as far as we are concerned.

“Nicky is up for the challenge, he accepts where we are at and he is already busily on with shaping his retention list and list of wanted players for the season ahead.”

Meanwhile, Alfreton Town are eagerly looking forward to staging this Sunday’s big FA Cup tie at the Impact Arena.

The Reds are hosting the prestigious Women’s FA Cup semi-final tie between Notts County Ladies and Everton Ladies which kicks-off at 2pm.

The game has not been made all ticket and admission at just £4 each for adults and £1 for concessions can be made by payment at the turnstile on the day of the game.
