Veteran striker Rhead signs for Alfreton

Alfreton Town have signed experienced striker Matt Rhead.

Rhead, 37, has been a prolific scorer in non-league football over the years, both at the lower levels with the likes of Leek Town and Eastwood Town and then with the likes of Lincoln City and Mansfield Town.

He was most recently at Boreham Wood but has now returned back to his Midlands roots to become Billy Heath's fifth summer signing.

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Darren Moore’s Sheffield Wednesday will make the trip to Alfreton for a pre-season friendly on Tuesday, July 13 at 7.45pm.
