Phil Parkinson has bolstered Altrincham's attacking options for the coming weeks by securing the services of Stockport County striker Connor Jennings for a further month.
The experienced Manchester-born frontrunner arrived at The J.Davidson Stadium from County at the beginning of November, shortly after the start of winger Elliot Newby's loan spell.
Though his debut ended in disappointment, with a 2-0 home defeat to Barnet, it was swiftly followed by a positive contribution to a marked upturn in fortunes for the Robins, as the team embarked on an unbeaten run that now stands at eight games, seven of them in the Vanarama National League.
Connor has proved himself an accomplished leader of the line during a loan spell that has already run for two months and will now continue for a further month.
His hold-up play and physical presence has been a prominent feature of the eight starts he has made so far, and he got off the mark in Alty colours with a goal in last month's 3-2 win at Maidstone United.
Here's wishing you more success at Alty in the coming month, Connor.
