Alfreton Town have signed centre-back Ryan Qualter from Boston United.
Qualter, 28, has a wealth of experience at National League North level, having played previously at Bradford (Park Avenue) and spending the last season and a half at the Pilgrims.
He is the first addition to the Impact Arena ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
Former Shaw Lane captain Qualter joined the Pilgrims in January 2018, making 18 appearances during the 2017/18 season before featuring 44 times last season, including both fixtures against the Reds. Qualter found the net once last season.
Billy Heath said of his first summer signing: “Ryan has a wealth of experience at this level, he’s played and was captain at Shaw Lane, Ryan has been at Bradford PA before spending the last season and a half at Boston.
“He has played a lot of games and is a very solid strong defender, he definitely stood out to us in both games last season and we are delighted to have him at the Reds and we are excited to have him part of what we hope will be a more solid defensive unit.”
