Alfreton Town have signed defender James Clifton from Boston United.

Clifton signs a one-year deal at the Impact Arena. Clifton, whose previous clubs include Brackley Town and Nuneaton Town before joining Boston in June 2017, made 38 appearances for the Pilgrims last season, scoring three times.

Predominantly a right-back, Clifton can also slot into midfield if required.

Manager Billy Heath said: “James is a fantastic right-back for us; he can also play right-midfield if needed. He is a player who has been around at this level.”

“I came across him at Nuneaton Town and he was a standout performer during his time there. He is a tenacious defender, strong, composed and good on the ball. He had a fantastic season at Boston last season too and he provides huge experience at this level.”

“It’s important for us to bring in players who are experienced at this level and James coming in is another strong signing for us and another with plenty of experience. We are delighted to have him at the Reds.”
