FC Halifax Town: Ashworth the latest departure

FC Halifax Town have confirmed that Luke Ashworth has left the Shay.

The Bolton-born defender made his debut for the Shaymen in their Boxing Day victory at Gainsborough.

He went on to make 12 full appearances, and two from the bench, as Town ultimately missed out on a place in the Blue Square Bet North play-off final.

Ashworth started his career at Wigan before having spells at Leyton Orient, Rotherham United and Harrogate Town before joining Neil Aspin’s side.
