Pen Pic: 
An experienced and pacey winger who came to City having been thrown out of Hednesford after a falling out with manager John Baldwin whom he pithily called a "fat bastard". Played several times for City reserves in Spring 1998 but was unable to play for the firsts as the Pitmen refused to terminate his contract and City could not afford the asking price. Finally signed for City in May 1998, honouring a 'pre-contractual agreement' with Rosenior despite interest from several Conference sides. 
Was a devastating player when at his best, with his pace and trickery causing DML defences all sorts of problems. Won several crucial penalties for City over the season, and often kept going in difficult conditions and heavy pitches when so many other 'flash' wingers pack up.  Hit a rich strain of form in October 1998, including a hatrick away at Chertsey in the Trophy. Seemed to be more effective on the wing after a spell as a forward exposed a tendency to put his head down and often fail to see passing opportunities. Despite this occasional frustrating lack of vision he  provided that extra special bit of class that City so desperately need in the last third, displaying the talent that persuaded Wycombe to give him a taste of League football when they paid Northwich 35,000 for him a few seasons ago. 
Survived a conviction for wife-beating, but left the club under a cloud following a bust-up with then Chairman Rob Thomas, meaning City at the very least missed out on a fee for a marketable asset. Hemmo then re-surfaced with Ilkeston Town, and went on to make a somewhat unlikely return to the Football League with a 1999 30,000 move to Chester City, and then repeated the trick when they fell into the Conference by heading for Carlisle United.
