Reds notch up historic win

Alfreton Town 3

Luton Town 0

Alfreton Town pulled off one of the most notable wins in their history when they swept aside Luton Town at the Impact Arena on Saturday.

The Hatters had won all three of their opening Blue Square Bet Premier away games before being derailed by a rampant Reds performance in the sweltering heat, with Anthony Wilson scoring twice to add to Dan Bradley’s penalty.

The Reds were making it difficult for their opponents to create any fluent moves, although it needed a routine save from keeper Jon Stewart to hold Jake Robinson’s low drive in the 11th minute.

Alfreton led 2-0 on 23 minutes after Dean Beckwith had upended Arnold, with Bradley claiming his first Reds’ goal with a well-placed spot-kick.

With 66 minutes on the clock Alfreton were gifted a third goal when Tyler misjudged Bradley’s lofted through-ball as Wilson closed in, the keeper’s attempted clearance merely setting up the striker with the simple task of rolling the ball into the empty net.

ALFRETON: Stewart; Law, Kempson, Streete, Franklin, Franks, Meadows (Russell 83),

Bradley, Brown, Arnold (Tomlinson 89), A.Wilson (Clayton 66).
