Alfreton Town players Bradley Wood and Dan Bradley have been named in the England C squad for the forthcoming international friendly fixture with the Czech Republic Under 21 team which is to be played from 6pm, at Woking FC, on November 19,

The inclusion of Wood and Bradley means Alfreton’s scheduled Skrill Premier game at Lincoln City the same evening has been postponed and is awaiting a new date.

However, if the Reds draw this Saturday’s FA Cup first round tie at Wrexham, the Reds players will be released from the England squad as the replay also takes place on Tuesday, November 19.

Alfreton Town Council continued their long support of Alfreton Town FC with a further 12 month extension of their sponsorship with a grant of three thousand pounds.

The sponsorship, amongst other benefits provides free of charge admission for each home League game for ten members of local groups, clubs, schools and community organisations in the town.

Any group interested in attending a future fixture should contact the town council on 01773 520032 for further information.

The town council will also be the main Match Day sponsor for a fixture later in the season and will be working with to make this a community event.

Alfreton Town Council leader Cllr Scott Walker said: “The town council very much values the sponsorship of the club. Along with the national publicity for the town with the town council’s name on the team’s shorts, and recognition in the match day programme and around the ground, ten individuals each week get chance to watch the highest level of non-league football which they may otherwise not have the chance to do.”

Cllr John Walker, Alfreton Town Mayor, said:”I have been a member of the town council since 1991 and have been delighted to have seen the town council support the football club over this time.

“I hope those who benefit from the free tickets will enjoy their visit and return again to watch other matches, and that the town council’s sponsorship will aid the continued progression of the club.”
