Birmingham City defender joins Alfreton Town

Alfreton Town have snapped up defender Wes Harding on a one-month youth loan from Birmingham City.

Harding joins the Reds until September 9 and will be in contention for Saturday’s game at home to Curzon Ashton.

Championship side Birmingham will still be able to call upon the 19-year-old to play in non-first team fixtures.

And, in the terms of the agreement, there is a release clause after 28 days.
