RUFC - Who's up next for the Millers . . .

Rotherham United travel over the border into Derbyshire on Tuesday night when they play their next pre-season friendly against Alfreton Town at the Impact Arena.

The Reds` Manager, Nicky Law is no stranger to Millers fans having played over one hundred and twenty-five games for Rotherham between 1990 and 1993. Of course, he is probably most famous at the moment because his son, Nicky junior, is currently a Millers` player! Nicky senior joined Alfreton in May 2007 and has signed a contract which will keep him at the Impact Stadium until then end of the 2011/12 season. It will actually be like a family day out for the Law family on Tuesday night because, apart from his dad, Nicky Law could be playing against his brother, Josh, who plays in Midfield for Town.

Alfreton Town FC, as we now know it, was formed in 1959 when there was a merger between Alfreton Miners Welfare and Alfreton United and within two seasons they were in the Midland Counties League where they won the League Title three times in the 1970`s.

The Midland League and Yorkshire League merged in 1982 and, after becoming Division Champions in 1987, The Reds joined the Northern Premier League. Going into the 1990`s, Alfreton had a slump which led them to being relegated and in 1999 they ended up back in the Northern Counties East League.

In 2003, the club won the First Division and the Derbyshire Senior Cup and, following this, they won promotion to the Conference North. In 2004 Alfreton Town were the founding members of Conference North, there highest finish being last season when they reached the play-offs where they lost 2-1 to Fleetwood Town in the final.

In this season`s pre-season friendlies, Town have drawn against Chesterfield and beaten Luton Town 3-0.
