Former Walsall ace happy to play anywhere for Victoria Road outfit

Although Ashley Hemmings would like to earn another contract at Dagenham & Redbridge, the 23-year-old is taking things slowly. He is however, thrilled with how things are going under manager Wayne Burnett.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers ace has become an integral player at Victoria Road, starting 13 times in the league this campaign on the way to making 20 appearances overall.

He has enjoyed working with Burnett and would like to remain at Daggers, after signing a one-year contract in the summer.

“It would be a great thing to work my way to a new contract, but I will take it game by game,” admitted Hemmings.

“Obviously it is the manager’s decision on whether he gives me one or not, but if I keep playing good then why not sign another year or two if I get that chance.

“He is great manager. He tells you how it is, and you have just got to play how he wants you to.

“He will back you and support you all the way and it has been great playing underneath him, Warren Hackett and Darren Currie.”

Hemmings has been fielded as a left-back/left wing-back in recent weeks and excelled in the role.

It is a position the former Walsall ace is familiar with, but it means his fitness needs to be up to scratch.

He added: “I have been playing left-back. I have played there a couple of times with other teams so it is alright.

“I wouldn’t mind playing there for a long time, as long as I am playing. I am a player that can play a lot of different positions.

“I think for me and Battsy our fitness needs to be up there, obviously getting up and down there is a lot of work.

“It is the sacrifice you have to do for your team and something we do to see how we can get more wins.”
