Still only 25, the former Stockport, Macclesfield and MK Dons man has a wealth of Football League experience under his belt, including an FA Cup trip to Chelsea as a Macclesfield Town player, when he marked and swapped shirts with Frank Lampard.
Salford-born Hadfield first joined Ashton in 2009, before stepping back up the football ladder to Blue Square Conference National side Kettering Town. After an injury-hit time with The Poppies, Hadfield returned to the Manchester area to join fellow Evo-Stik Northern side Radcliffe Borough in 2011.
Hadfield recently played for Ashton in a trial game at Northwich, but the match had to be abandoned just after the hour mark as the midfielder suffered a serious facial injury that required surgery. Thankfully now fully recovered, the midfielder will be battling it out for a place in central midfield as part of Danny Johnson's squad.
Hadfield will be aiming for a place in the squad that faces Marine on Wednesday evening, even though his name doesn't begin with 'B' - unlike all of Johnson's other middle men - Baker, Beattie, Baguley and Burke!
