We’re firm believers in supporting your local team so you won’t find us cheering on Man United or Chelsea from the sofa. Instead we’ll be at the Impact Arena watching the mighty Alfreton Town where summer signing Jordan Sinnott has really caught our eye this year. He’s impressed us so much so that we’ve decided to sponsor the attacking midfielder for the rest of the season.
Having come through the ranks at Huddersfield Town, Sinnott had spells at Halifax Town, Bury, Altrincham and Chesterfield before joining Alfreton at the beginning of the season. So far this year, Sinnott has netted three goals in 11 appearances for the Reds, the most recent coming in a 1-1 draw with Telford United at the beginning of the month.
For every goal Sinnott scores from now until the end of the season, we’ve pledged to donate £50 to the South Normanton Area Foodbank, the Alfreton Town Mayor’s chosen charity. Having first opened in 2013, the foodbank supplies nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to people in the local community who are in crisis. With one in five people in the UK living below the poverty line, the project was set up by local churches and community groups to help reduce hunger in our local area and it’s a cause we’re fully behind. You can find more info about the South Normanton Area Foodbank here.
In terms of results on the pitch, it’s not been the best of starts for Alfreton, who currently sit 16th in the Vanarama National League North, with only five wins from the first 15 games. However, it’s a marathon not a sprint and we’re counting on Sinnott, a previous champion at this level, to help propel the side up the league table in the coming months.
We’ll be keeping you up to date on how Sinnott and the rest of the Alfreton boys get on throughout the season so make sure you keep an eye on The View and our Twitter (@Eurocellplc) for the latest.
