Reds Borrow Iron Keeper

Vanarama Conference club Alfreton Town have taken goalkeeper James Severn on a month`s loan from Sky Bet League….

….Two side Scunthorpe United.

United signed Severn following his release from Derby County in June 2012.

The 22-year-old had a spell on trial at Glanford Park towards the end of the 2011/12 season and impressed the coaching staff during his time at the club.

He rose through the ranks at Derby but made just one appearance for the club and had loan spells with Tamworth and Eastwood Town.

Severn came on as a substitute in the 23rd minute of the Iron’s trip to Portsmouth in September 2012, his debut for the club, and saved a penalty 9 minutes after coming on but couldn’t prevent Scunthorpe from suffering a 2-1 loss.

However, Severn faced stiff competition for a place between the sticks during that season with Sam Slocombe and loan ‘keepers Steve Mildenhall and Eirik Holmen Johansen preventing him from making another appearance in Scunthorpe colours for the rest of the 2012-13 campaign.

He spent time out on loan at Tamworth for the second time in his career towards the end of 2012, making three appearances and was United’s second choice goalkeeper behind Slocombe as the club secured promotion to League One last season.

Severn has recently penned a new one-year deal to extend his stay in North Lincolnshire.

The Nottingham born shot stopper has represented England at under-17, under-19 and under-20 level so far in his career.

His first appearance for the Three Lions came in February 2008 against Denmark, with his last coming three years later in February 2011 against France.
