Debut from defender Rose earns plaudits

Nicky Law was pleased with the performance of on-loan defender Jordan Rose, who has arrived on an emergency deal from AFC Telford United to cover for injuries.

He said after Tuesday’s game, which saw Rose make his debut and also score: “I thought Jordan Rose came in and did really, really well.

“I am just grateful that they [AFC Telford United] have given us a big chunk of finance for him to come, otherwise we would not have been able to afford him, so a big thanks to them as otherwise we would not have been able to do the deal.”

The Reds are home to Gateshead in the league on Saturday. Kick-off is at pm.

On Tuesday, Alfreton make the short trip to Ilkeston FC in the semi-finals of the Derbyshire Senior Cup.
