ALFRETON Town have signed a total of three players on the August transfer window deadline day.

Fresh from adding former Huddersfield Town play-maker Andy Holdsworth, Reds manager Nicky Law has also landed ex-Rotherham United midfield player Steve Brogan and promising central defender Nikolaus Kudiersky.

Highly-rated Brogan, 23, is a former Rotherham United Academy product.

He progressed to the Millers’ first team, gaining a two-year deal in April, 2007.

His consistent displays brought several Premier League scouts to watch him.

After another terrific season in 2007/08, he sustained a horrendous double fracture of his leg which put him out of the game for 14 months.

He returned to Rotherham’s first team at the end of the 2008/09 campaign after which he went out on loan to Stalybridge Celtic in January, 2011, where he scored on his debut in a 5-3 defeat against Alfreton Town!

Brogan has been given the squad number 25 shirt.

Reds manager Nicky Law stressed that 6ft 1in central defender Kudiersky, 20, is ‘one for the future’.

The former Burnley reserve team player has signed for the Reds on dual registration forms.

He will train with the Reds but will also continue to play with parent club New Mills FC in the Evo-Stik League First Division South with the blessing of both clubs.

Nikolaus has been given the squad number 24 shirt.
