Draw for Shaymen

Halifax Town 0 Gloucester City 0

Town picked up a point but could have had all three from their Shay clash with Gloucester.

Tom Baker and James Dean both hit the woodwork early on for the Shaymen and Dean had the ball in the net from a corner after the break but he linesman ruled the ball had gone out.

Gloucester rarely threatened in a game in which their midfelder Steve Davies suffered a badly injured arm and was taken to hospital by ambulance causing a half hour delay.

Ross Hannah and Sean Clancy both made promising debuts for Town who travel to Bishop’s Stortford next weekend.
