Alfreton Town U18s finished in fourth spot of the Rowsley Youth Football League following their promotion last season.

The Junior Reds claimed fourth place with a 2-1 win over Wingerworth Saints at Matlock’s Cavendish Fields.

Saints went ahead before Alfreton levelled through Church.

Late in the second half, super sub Gackowski steamed into the box to stroke home the winner.

Meanwhile, there is a push from the Derbyshire County Football Association, Derby City Council and national FA to try and keep young men playing football.
