Ross Atkins: Alfreton sign Derby County goalkeeper on loan

Alfreton Town have completed the signing of Derby County goalkeeper Ross Atkins on a season-long loan.

The 23-year-old will continue to train full-time with the Rams as Conference side Alfreton are now a part-time club.

Derby manager Nigel Clough told the club website: "He needs to be playing regular first-team football so the move is a great opportunity."

Atkins was on loan with Burton Albion in the 2011/12 season and for the first half of last season.
