FC Halifax Town have been ordered to pay £8,000 compensation to Chester for the transfer of midfielder Kingsley James.

The ruling was made on Friday at Wembley and also includes a 20 per cent sell-on clause should the Shaymen receive a fee for James in the future.

Halifax were believed to have made bids of £5,000 for James on two occasions, both of which were rejected.

Because he was under 24 years of age, Chester were entitled to compensation for James, who turned down a new contract towards the end of the season.
