Transfers and Other News
August 16: Dave Knaggs and Steven Russell sign with Halifax
August 31: The English transfer window closed without any activity from Halifax.
August 27: Sam O'Connor injured his hamstring in the match against Tamworth and will be out 3-4 months.
So far, we're comfortably ahead of the relegation zone, which is the goal, but we're closer to promotion than relegation! It's still early, but if this keeps up a double promotion is realistically possible. One thing I would like to see more of in the future is Damien Salt, he's had some problems with injuries and fitness, and when he's on the pitch he tends to make things happen. Karl Radburn is a revelation though!
September 16: Jamie Blake loaned to AFC Fylde for 4 months; AFC Fylde will cover 100% of Blake's 80 pounds a week salary.
September 20: Halifax signed Connor Hedley
September 3: Steven Russell suffered broken ribs during the Stalybridge match and will be out 4-5 weeks.
It has to be considered a dream start to the season so far for Halifax supporters. Halifax is only a couple of points out of the playoff picture at the moment, and can even contend for automatic promotion if they can string some results together and Newport County stumbles. Still, the season is long and there are still a mountain of fixtures left to play.
