TUESDAY nigth was another performance in which Alfreton Town put in hard work, dedication and skill.
Alfreton are showing signs of a top conference side by getting points week in week out, something which will be vital next season.
Should they continue this form until the end of the season, that plus some more good signings along the lines of Jordan Rose could see Alfreton’s league position next season rise.
Jordan Rose, who got a well taken goal against struggling Ebbsfleet, previously played his football at youth level at Southampton and more interestingly Stade Malherbe Caen, a famed French Academy, but after the promising signs his career de-railed, leading him to join the Nike Academy and looking for a club.
However with short stints at both Stockport and Eastleigh, the defender’s adventures have brought him here temporarily, I see him as one who has yet to settle and hence show his true potential in the game.
Another subject which Nicky Law has to look into is how to replace the loan signings he has got and whether he can get suitable, if not better, signings.
To be a good conference side you need to be physically adept, have technically good midfielders, wingers with pace and a striker who knows where the back of the net is, and so far the manager has been sticking to this structure, after getting the powerful Jordan Rose, Dan Bradley who is always improving and Clayton who has been on the score sheet many a time.
There will be definite signings in the summer, the only question is what position he is able to improve and also what lengths he is willing to go to improve. All we know for now, is that if Alfreton keep up this tantalising style of football as well as productive form, there is no telling what they can’t achieve.
