Former Guiseley captain Simon Ainge has today become FC Halifax Town’s seventh summer signing.

Ainge was released by fellow Conference Premier side Luton recently and has been capped by the England C side.

The 25-year-old centre-back began his career at Bradford City and had been strongly linked with a move to the Shay over the last few weeks.

He joins fellow defender Marc Roberts, midfielders Matt Pearson, Keith Briggs and Adam Smith and forwards Kevin Holsgrove and Josh Wilson in signing for Town this summer.

Town kick-off their pre-season schedule tomorrow when they play Scarborough at the Shay (Saturday, 3pm kick-off).
