FC Halifax Town hot shot Gareth Seddon has been made available for transfer, the club has confirmed.

Despite scoring 23 goals last season, Seddon has been frustrated at the lack of first team starts and boss Neil Aspin has reluctantly agreed to let the striker go.

Aspin said: “I fully understand Gareth’s position as he desperately wants to start every game and with Lee Gregory playing so well and sometimes with our play only involving one out and out striker, we cannot keep everyone happy. Gareth will always score goals.”

Seddon remains a popular figure with the Town faithful and cemented a permanent place in their hearts when he scored a stunning left foot 25 yard strike to beat Guiseley in the County Cup final. However, no club has yet to make contact with Town with regards to acquiring the striker’s services, with Seddon saying he will only go if the deal is right for all concerned.

“I am thoroughly enjoying playing at Halifax and it is great being part of a team winning promotion to the Conference Premier, but I feel I need to play regularly and keep scoring goals,” said the 33-year-old.

“We have mutually agreed that if a club comes in for me, then subject to terms being agreed between the clubs, I will be given permission to discuss a move.”
