Reds Sign International Striker

Vanarama National League North club Alfreton Town have signed Gibraltar international striker Adam Priestley from Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division South side Shaw Lane AFC.

Priestley joined Shaw Lane in the summer of 2015 from Farsley Celtic.

He had re-joined Farsley in October 2013 following a spell at then National League North side Guiseley AFC.

The striker originally joined the Celts at the start of the 2012/13 season and finished the season as top scorer with 27 goals.

This understandably generated interest from clubs higher up the non-League Pyramid and he spent unsuccessful trial periods with both FC Halifax Town and Hyde United before finally settling for a move to Guiseley under Steve Kittrick.

When Kittrick left Nethermoor after a poor start to the season, Priestley fell out of new boss Mark Bower’s plans and decided to return to Throstle Nest.

Before his first spell at Farsley, Priestley flourished with Garforth Town after taking the step up from amateur football with West Yorkshire League side Sherburn White Rose.

He settled well at Garforth and scored 19 goals in 2010/11 and 23 in 2011/12, before joining Farsley that summer.

Priesley has also earned five international caps with the newly-UEFA accepted Gibraltar side.

He qualifies for the nation after being born there whilst his father was serving there in the RAF.
