Alfreton boss Nicky Law has criticised new Halifax signing Cliff Moyo for the manner of his departure from the Derbyshire club.
Moyo was announced as a Halifax player this week, depsite Law’s claim that the 23-year-old had verbally agreed a deal to stay at Alfreton.
“We were doing fine, we were sat there with 14 players retained and then I lost two through the Under 24 rule, they’ve chosen to go elsewhere,” he said.
“It’s disappointing but they’ve probably bettered their wages so I can’t blame them for that.
“Then I had an agreement in principal with Cliff Moyo and we get back to training on Tuesday but he’s gone and signed for Halifax, which is within his rights.
“I’ve not even had a phone call from the club taking him or the player, thanking us for the last 12 months of helping him with his development, getting him on the right road.
“It’s a more prosperous club, but to see it on a Twitter page is disappointing, but then again it doesn’t surprise me.”
“That’s the modern day for you,” he said.
“For 12 months you take someone from no where, get them to the point where people are looking at them and you can’t even get a phone call.
“When you ring them up they say it’s someone else’s fault.”
