Alex is a former Belper Town reserve team player who was allowed to ‘slip the net’ in his quest to realise his football ambition. He moved to local rivals Mickleover Sports where he built an enviable reputation for this goal scoring talents. He moved on from Sports in summer 2011 to join Chasetown but his spell with the Scholars was short and he returned to Mickleover just a few months later. He continued to score freely for Sports until he was tempted by a move to Stafford Rangers In September 2013 but again his tenure was brief as he moved again, this time to Gresley FC. Alex scored 28 goals for the Moatmen last season but agreed to reunite with former manager Charlie Palmer in October 2015 and will be hoping to maintain his scoring touch with the Nailers.
