Alfreton Town – Match Day Experience

On Saturday the 21st of April, nine members of our school football team, accompanied by Ms Leivers and Mr Norman, attended Alfreton Town’s final home game of the season against FC United of Manchester.

Alfreton Town run an after school club every Wednesday for us, so to celebrate our relationship with them they provided us with a fantastic VIP match day experience at the Impact Arena.

The game finished 1-0 to Alfreton Town with a 25-yard wonder strike in the first half from winger Tom Platt enough to settle an evenly contested game. The pupils loved being so close to the action and thanks must go to Alfreton Town who proved to be fantastic hosts, providing pupils with half time snacks and giving them to opportunity to meet some of the players.

Hopefully those who attended picked up some new skills ahead of our upcoming school match vs Brackenfield School on Thursday afternoon.
