Jim Harvey has been appointed as FC Halifax Town manager until the end of the season after remaining unbeaten as caretaker-boss at The Shay.

Harvey took charge after Darren Kelly was sacked last month and has led the team to an unbeaten run in their last five games, winning three against Gateshead, Dover and Tamworth.

The Northern Irishman has previously managed Forest Green, Morecambe, Chester and Stalybridge and becomes Halifax’s third permanent manager of the season after Neil Aspin and Darren Kelly.

His next game in charge is at Lincoln on Boxing Day.

Harvey will talk to current assistant Tommy Miller about his position, and says there are “one or two” other people interested in becoming his number two at The Shay.
