Monday Jul 28, 2014
WELCOME BACK ANTHONY
Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law has brought former Reds player Anthony Howell back to the club on a one-year deal ahead of the 2014/15 Conference Premier season.
Howell, 28, recently left Mansfield Town after two seasons with the Stags in which he helped them to the Conference Premier Division title at the end of the 2012/13 campaign.
He is primarily a central midfield player but can also operate as a striker or winger.
Anthony was previously with Alfreton for two-and-a-half seasons, helping the club win the Conference North title in the 2010/11 campaign, and is manager Law's eleventh new signing of the summer.

“The whole purpose of pre-season games is to get your squad fit, and there can be an opportunity to look at players who might be available,” said United’s director of football Jez George.
“They’ve got to fit what you’re looking for and add to the group. That’s nothing against Anthony Howell or any individual player - they’ve just got to be right for us.”
