FC Halifax Town have signed towering striker Tom Denton from North Ferriby United.

The former Wakefield, Huddersfield Town, Mossley and Alfreton Town player has joined on a two-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

He follows new boss Billy Heath and left-back Josh Wilde to the Shay.

The 6ft 7in Denton, aged 26, scored 21 league goals last season as the East Riding side gained promotion from National North.

Shepley-born Denton was also a member of the North Ferriby side which won the FA Trophy in 2015, 12 months before Town upset the odds against Grimsby in the same competition at Wembley.
