IT LOOKS set to be a busy week in the transfer market for Lancaster City boss Tony Hesketh as he tries to reignite his side’s play-off push.

According to the City boss, players will be moving in and out of the club in the next week but one player staying at the Giant Axe is star striker Danny Hattersley, who will not be joining big-spending rivals AFC Fylde.

The 19-year-old from the Isle of Man had been interesting the Coasters who have stormed to the top of the Evo-Stik First Division North after winning their last seven league games.

But Hattersley, who has scored 21 goals in a breakout season, is staying with the Dolly Blues.

Hesketh said: “Danny’s not going to Fylde. He’s more than happy where he is and is staying at Lancaster City.

“They gave notice of the seven-day approach but I don’t know whether they called Danny or not.

“He just called me on Friday night to discuss the arrangements for the game on Saturday.

“I’ve always said if a bigger club were to show an interest it would be different but Fylde was not the right move for him.

“There will be player movement in the next seven to ten days as we try to freshen things up for a final assault in the second half of the season.”
