Alfreton Town FC issued the following update on Monday, March 6
Alfreton Town FC welcomed promotion chasing rivals Darlington FC to the Impact Arena on Saturday (March 4).
A crowd of 633 witnessed a ‘game of two halves’ as the visitors in the first half moved into a two goal lead, to be pegged back by the hosts in a great contest which ended in a 2-2 draw with Alfreton’s goals coming from Matt Rhead and Yusifu Ceesay. Resulting in a one point gain for each team.
The visitors were arguably the happier with the conclusion as Alfreton turned the contest on its head and were unlucky not to win the game and collect the precious three league points.
Alfreton’s position in the division did not change other than to gain a point on the two teams immediately in front of them in the Vanarama National League North, whilst retaining the two games in hand on those teams around them.
On Tuesday (March 7), Alfreton welcome a further team with play-off ambitions in the shape of Banbury United.
Banbury make their first ever visit to the Impact Arena having gained promotion last season.
A team in form and full of quality, Alfreton will have to pass a further test of their play-off credentials. A potentially cracking game is in store for all who attend, to witness.
One of the club’s community partners, Bottled Up Blokes, held their third coffee morning at the Impact Arena on Friday (March 3) and continue to provide a platform and environment for all the meet and chat through all things of interest.
A further partner, Sisu Derbyshire, confirmed that their first ‘opening day’ at the Impact Arena has been put back to March 15, when they will have a presence at the Impact Arena between 10am and 1pm on the day.
