Striker Tom Denton has linked up with ex-FC Halifax Town boss Billy Heath at Alfreton Town.
The towering 28-year-old Denton, who has previously played at Alfreton, left Halifax at the end of the season after two years with the club. He links up with Heath for the third time after they also worked together at North Ferriby.
Heath told the Alfreton club website:
“I’ve had him at two different clubs and he has always done really well. He’s played a big part in the success at those clubs and is a huge player to bring in for us, it’s a great addition.”
“Tom is a proven goal-scorer and he has scored goals in both the National League North and the Premier, he can score goals at all levels and brings experience to the side.”
“He is a better player than people give credit for, his physical stature often means people think he’s the natural target man but Tom is brilliant with his feet, he has much more to his game than just heading the ball. He’s scored plenty with his feet and we are delighted to have him here at Alfreton.”
“The fans can expect goals; he’s a top striker, he holds it well and can be that target man. But he is also good in both boxes; he is great at defending set plays, corners. It’s a big asset for us and it’s a fantastic first signing.”
