Matt Pearson says it was an easy decision to sign for Town after rejecting offers from several other clubs to join the Shaymen.

Pearson joined the club permanently from Rochdale this summer after a successful loan spell during the second half of last season.

He said: “The way we finished the season, the lads and the team spirit in the squad, it was an easy decision to sign really. It’s all about that team spirit.

“There were a few clubs interested but I always had my eyes set on Halifax, especially with the gaffer and the way the fans have been with me.

Pearson says he is looking forward to his first season of regular first-team football.

He said: “I just want to play regularly and enjoy my football. I’ve not really had a whole season of playing week in, week out in my career yet.”
