FC Halifax Town striker Scott Boden has joined League Two side Newport County.

The striker joined Halifax from Macclesfield last summer and scored 10 goals in 38 league games last season.

But failed to hold down a regular starting spot over the second half of the season and scored just twice in the league after October.

He will play under former England captain Terry Butcher at Newport, who have had to assemble a whole new squad after having their budget slashed this summer.
