He replaces Billy Heath, who departed The Shay after their 2-1 defeat at Leyton Orient in January.

As a player, the 43-year-old Fullarton, who was born in Bellshill, Scotland, was a midfielder for the likes of St Mirren, Crystal Palace and Brentford, and has been a youth team coach of Bolton’s under 21 team as well as an academy coach at Nottingham Forest.

His first game in charge of Halifax will be at Eastleigh on Saturday.

In a statement, the club said: “Jamie brings with him an extensive knowledge of the game, a vast recruitment network and is a pro-license coach.”
