Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law has made his second new signing of the summer with Kristian Ramsey-Dickson joining the Reds on a one-year contract.

Dickson, 23, is a powerful and versatile player who has also played in central defence, but it is as a striker that the Reds have signed him, and his strength and exceptional pace could be a key factor.

He had a trial spell with Chesterfield FC at the end of last season and is understood to have been offered a deal for the 2013/14 season with the Blues but Kristian has opted to stay with his full-time job and to join the Reds.

Burton Albion plucked Dickson from non-league football when they signed him from Midlands Football Combination side Continental Star in November 2011 but he could not to make the breakthrough into the first team at the Pirelli Stadium and was sent out on loan to Mickleover Sports.

He has also played for Sutton Coldfield Town in the Northern Premier League First Division South.

Reds’ boss Nicky Law commented: “I think Kristian has loads of potential, he is something different for us and he can make a big impact in this division.”

A talented all-round sportsman, Kristian has previously played basketball for Great Britain and has run the 100 metres in 10.3 seconds.
