I believe the rumour got leaked after it were already a done deal. Whether the club will be happy about the local journalist leaking the story is another question.

You honestly think that other clubs wouldn't have known he was available? I always find it amusing that folk believe other clubs will discover they could possibly sign a player through a fans forum or a snippet in a newspaper rather than through the official lists of players coming off contract or agents.

Things have fallen nicely for Halifax here, realistically he wasn't going to get an offer from Fev with us already having Thomas Minns, local favourite Josh Hardcastle, and Kris Welham, who will be joining from Salford. Doubt he would have wanted another year in Lancashire and given where he's from Fax or Bradford were his likeliest destinations.

He's not a difference maker but he's an upgrade on Tyrer for sure, very solid in attack and defence and has been a fan favourite wherever he has gone. Just the numbers game would have made him surplus to requirements at Fev.

Rumour mill in overdrive but I believe Hardcastle was very close to becoming our second centre signing. Very happy with this signing though.

Any update on how sion jones is doing with his long term injury recovery ? Personally I think he should have been given more game time before his injury. He really caught the eye. Question is has he still got the leg power after that long a lay off. Some players never make it back but hes young enough to recover and covid might have come at a good time for him .

Im not sure he will get much game time to be honest. There used to be another poster who was obsessed by Sion Jones leg power didn't they? :D
