AFC Fylde winger James Hardy has today joined Halifax Town on loan for a month.

Hardy, who has been with the Coasters since his release from Manchester City in 2015, has been out of action for over four months with a hernia problem.

He featured for the first time again on Tuesday night against Ramsbottom United, where he played his part in the side’s 4-1 win.

Hardy has netted on one occasion this year in his thirteen appearances, in August’s 4-0 win against Dover Athletic.

The club wishes James all the best in his loan spell and hope he continues well with his path back from injury.
