As a youngster, the defender enjoyed successful loan spells at Maidenhead and Hungerford before returning to The Memorial Stadium to be a first team regular.

Alfie played 45 times across all competitions in 2019/20 and a further 44 in 2020/21 for the League One club which he joined as a seven-year-old.

The Bath-born centre-half joins Stags as the club’s first addition of the January 2023 transfer window as manager Nigel Clough bolsters his defensive options.

The boss told “We’re delighted that Alfie has joined us. He has a lot of experience in League One with Bristol Rovers and has been a part of their recent rise up the leagues.

“We’ve conceded too many goals this season and need a defender. Alfie’s a proper defender. One of the problems we’ve had is that we’ve had people play back there who aren’t natural defenders and he’s a natural defender.”

He added: “We’re very pleased, at his age, that he’s decided to come to Mansfield.”
