Altrincham have suffered a setback on the eve of their FA Cup tie with Southport, after AFC Fylde recalled dangerman Ashley Hemmings.

The 28-year old winger’s loan was scheduled to run until January 5th, but it has been cut short after Fylde agreed to cancel his contract at Mill Farm to facilitate a move to another club.

While Alty manager Phil Parkinson did his utmost to talk him into signing a permanent deal at The J.Davidson Stadium, there was no way around Hemmings’ insistence he wanted to retain his full-time status.

The news will disappoint Alty fans, as well as Parkinson and his coaching staff, after Hemmings arrived for a second loan spell with the Robins on August 16th and wasted no time making an impact.
