Alfreton Town Juniors under nines have rounded off an exciting seven weeks of action by winning the Summer Kickstart League.

Moving up from non-competitive under eights football last year to under nines competitive football in the Kickstart Summer League was always going to be a challenge for the lads but it has been one they have successfully tackled.

All the top sides in the age range entered this league so the quality of football was to the highest standard and it proved to be a nail biting ending to the season when Alfreton Town under nines won the league from Mansfield and Derwent Rangers, who finished as joint runner ups.

This capped an exciting few weeks for Alfreton, which saw the under nines team manager Gareth Clarke being voted Alfreton Towns’ Juniors Manager of the Year, an award that was presented at their presentation night.

Alfreton Town juniors are trying to establish a second under nines team for next year and they require two or three more players to add to their squad
