Alfreton announce pre-season schedule


Alfreton Town have announced a list of pre-season friendlies that will take place at the Impact Arena.

Several strong tests have been lined up for the Reds as they prepare for another campaign in the National League North.

First up will be a match against a Nottingham Forest XI with a 3pm start on Saturday, July 8.

That will be followed three days later by the visit of an as yet unnamed Championship club in a match that will double up as a testimonial game for the former Reds management team of Nicky Law and Russ O’Neill in recognition of their long spells with the club.

Rotherham United will be the visitors on Tuesday, July 18, before a Premier League club will visit on Saturday, July 22, their identity to be revealed at a later date.

A fixture with a League Two side has been lined up for Tuesday, July 25, with the identity of the club again yet to be revealed, before Mansfield Town provide the final home test on Saturday, July 29.

Ticket prices for all pre-season home games will be announced nearer the time.
