FC Halifax Town have made Buxton defender Marc Roberts their sixth new signing of the summer.

The 22-year-old centre-back was named in the Northern Premier League Premier Division team of the year last season after helping the club escape relegation.

He signed a permanent deal with the Bucks last month after a successful loan spell from Worksop Town.

He joins Josh Wilson, Kevin Holsgrove, Matt Pearson, Adam Smith and Keith Briggs in joining the Shaymen.
