Central midfielder Jordan Sinnott has joined National League North side Alfreton Town on a one-year deal following his exit from Chesterfield.

The former Spireite joins the Reds just after the departure of striker Tom Denton in the other direction to the Proact Stadium.

Sinnott was set to remain at Chesterfield in the summer, but a U-turn led to the midfielder being released after a move to another club fell through.

After earning a professional contract as a youngster at Huddersfield, Sinnott only went on to make three appearances for the Terriers during his three years in West Yorkshire, joining Altrincham and Bury on loan during that time, before being released and signing permanently for Altrincham.

Sinnott spent just one season with a Robins side which eventually went down from the National League, making 57 appearances before being snatched up by Halifax Town and playing an integral part of their play-off victory and consequent promotion to the National League in 2017.

His impressive season earned him a move to then-League Two Chesterfield but he made just 11 appearances in the Spireites' disaster season which saw them relegated from the English Football League.

"Jordan is pure quality," boss Billy Heath told the club's official website, "he is a central midfielder at the highest level.

"He is great on the ball and I had him at Halifax during the promotion campaign and he was outstanding, he was an integral part of that team and scored nine times.

"He is a fantastic signing for us, another strong addition to the squad and we are delighted to have him here at Alfreton, he brings more quality to us."

Sinnott will be available for the match day squad which will face Chorley Town later today.
