Alfreton host youth international teams

17th November 2017

Alfreton Town's Impact Arena has been used this week by the Under-17 national teams of Germany, Portugal and Russia.

The three nations used its surface as part of their training sessions ahead of the Under-17 European Championships which take place in England in May next year.

The Impact helped the nations also prepare for matches against England which saw Russia play at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium, Portugal play at Chesterfield’s Proact and Germany play at the home of Rotherham, The New York Stadium.

All three nations suffered defeats at the hands of next year’s hosts.

A club spokesperson said: "We are delighted with the feedback we received from the three nations who were happy with the playing surface and facilities provided at the Impact Arena.

"We are extremely proud of our home which continues to help and host a wide variety of teams and its importance as a chosen venue for the likes of Nottingham Forest and international teams.

"It gives us great pride of both our playing surface and facilities."
