Deadline day capture for Reds

REDS manager Nicky Law made a transfer deadline day addition to his squad.

The Reds boss has brought former Huddersfield Town, Oldham Athletic and Morecambe midfield player Andy Holdsworth, to the Impact Arena.

Law explained his delight at landing the 27-year-old, saying: “He is a versatile player at the right age with loads of experience.

“He can also play at right back. He has an air of composure about him.

“You need different types of players at this level. He is someone we are going to be looking to to keep the ball and pass it. He was keen to come here which was another big factor.

Holdsworth is a product of Huddersfield’s successful Academy set-up who progressed to make the first team.

He is the second signing in five days following the arrival of former Liverpool Academy striker James Ellison, who joined the Reds on a month-long loan from Burton Albion last Friday.

He joined the Brewers on a two-year deal in the summer of 2010 after negotiating his release from Anfield by mutual consent due to fierce competition for places.

Ellison had loan spells at both Stafford Rangers and Hednesford Town during the 2010/11 season.

He made three appearances in the Brewers’ first team as a substitute last season and has been described as a good finisher with an excellent eye for goal.

Ellison made his debut in the 4-1 home defeat by league leaders Wrexham last Saturday and came off the bench again on Monday at York.

Ellison was given squad number 22 with Holdsworth taking over number 23.

l Alfreton’s Josh Law was last week named in the England C squad for a proposed friendly international against a touring India U23 side at Dagenham & Redbridge FC, but the tour was this week called off.
