Alfreton produce memorable display in first game since Jordan Sinnott tragedy

The Reds beat Gloucester City 6-1 last night.

Alfreton produced a memorable display yesterday, in the club's first fixture since the tragic events surrounding Jordan Sinnott over the weekend.

The reds won by a five goal margin against Gloucester City in the National League North.

Prior to the game, a minute's silence was held in memory of Sinnott, who played for the club in the 2018-19 campaign, before he was loaned out to Matlock Town this season.

The 25 year old passed away on Saturday evening after he was attacked on a night out in Nottinghamshire.

On loan striker Danny Elliot scored a hat-trick on his debut for the club following his move from Chester.

Midfielder Bobby Johnson added a brace for the hosts, whilst top scorer Amari Morgan-Smith also got amongst the goals.

The visitors were briefly level through Matt McClure, but Alfreton's determination to honour the late Jordan Sinnott with a convincing victory proved to be relentless.

Victory lifts Billy Heath's men up to 14th in the table.
