Josh Thacker and Tyler Williams have joined Alfreton Town following successful trials.

Thacker came through the Hull City Academy and was a regular in the Under-23 set-up before being released by Hull on expiry of his contract at the end of the 2018/19 campaign.  Thacker has impressed with his composure and solidity in the Reds’ back line during pre-season and provides another defensive option within the squad.

Williams was most previously at Brighouse Town, where he made 13 appearances, scoring twice. Williams has also caught the eye during pre-season for his electric pace and quick feet.

Manager Billy Heath said: “I’m delighted to have both lads with us ahead of the new season following successful trials. Josh is a player who is always learning, he’s only 19 and was released from Hull City which would have been difficult for him after being there from an early age.”

“He has shown great strength of character and has a level head on the pitch. I love his maturity and attitude to the game and he has shown experience ahead of his years. I’m pleased to have him.”

“Tyler is a player I have known about for some years now and he’s come in and done everything we’ve expected. He has an excellent attitude and has shown great qualities for us. He is still young and has done well through pre-season, we are looking forward to seeing his development this season.”
