However, following an impressive display against Barnet at the start of October, Metcalfe sustained a slight finger injury.

Despite committing to training and playing, it was felt by all parties that a return to the Riverside Stadium was in his best interests.

A Fylde statement said: “The club would like to place on record its thanks to Max for his efforts and his family and Middlesbrough for allowing us to play a role in his development. He returns to the North East with our best wishes.”
