Hopkinson will stay

Sat Mar 27, 2010 : 19:36

Bobby Hopkinson will almost certainly remain with the Hawks until the end of the season after a technicality stopped his return to Conference Premier side AFC Wimbledon in the week. Hopkinson, released three weeks ago by Aldershot Town, was expected to complete a move to Wimbledon before arriving at the Hawks last week with Dons manager Terry Brown’s blessing on a dual registration.

But having allowed him to play for the Hawks, Wimbledon’s attempts to reclaim the much fancied midfielder in the week were halted because of an FA ruling that prevents loan signings returning to their parent club inside a fortnight of their initial move. With the window for player transfers set to close this week, Wimbledon will now be unable to fully secure Hopkinson’s services until the close season.
