Altrincham boss Phil Parkinson has moved quickly to fill the gap vacated by the departure of Ashley Hemmings to Kidderminster Harriers by signing highly rated left-winger Luke Wall from Witton Albion.

The 22-year-old started his career at Blackburn Rovers, joining Accrington Stanley upon his release from Ewood Park. He scored 5 goals in 30 appearances for Bangor City in 2017/18 season, when he also played for the Welsh side in the Europa League against Lyngby BK of Denmark.

Last season he started at Stalybridge Celtic, before spending the majority of the campaign at Curzon Ashton, making 24 appearances and scoring 5 goals. He joined Witton Albion in the summer, where his performances made him an instant hit with the Albion fans and alerted the Altrincham manager.

Parkinson said: “I went to watch Lewis Walters play for Ashton United against Witton Albion last week, and I’ve got to be honest, Luke was the best player on the park. He caught my eye; he has a kind of a Beckham- esque delivery.

“I mean that’s a massive complement when describing players, but that’s how I sort of fit him in terms of the way he can deliver a ball without having to beat a man. He was on the money every time and his work rate is second to none, which it has to be to be to play at this level, where he has played for Curzon Ashton.”
