Hird joins for the rest of the 2018/19 campaign and can play both in central defence and as a defensive midfielder. Hird’s career began at Leeds United and he was loaned out to Doncaster in 2007 before moving to the Keepmoat on a permanent basis.
A loan spell at Grimsby followed before returning back to Doncaster, Hird made 157 appearances for Donny, before moving to Chesterfield in 2012 on a free transfer, where he would stay until the end of the 2017/18 season.
Hird made 231 appearances in all competitions for Chesterfield, scoring ten goals.
Alfreton manager Billy Heath said:

“Sam is a fantastic character to have around and he is a quality player; we are so pleased to have him with us and it’s a big signing for us. We are still moving forward and we are always making sure we bring the right people into the club.
“We are delighted to have Sam join the Reds and provide both experience and quality.”
