Vice-captain Garner joined Town on a two-year deal from Boston United in suimmer 2016 and was outstanding as Halifax won promotion to the National League last season, with Garner scoring the winner in the play-off final against Chorley.

The deal means Halifax now avoid the risk of losing Garner on a free transfer next summer.
