Former FC Halifax Town players Martin Riley and Mike Fondop-Talom have signed for Alfreton and Wrexham respectively.

Centre-back Riley has signed a one-year contract at Alfreton to link up again with ex-Halifax manager Billy Heath at the National League North club.

Riley’s season at Town was hampered by a serious injury which restricted him to just three appearances.

Forward Fondop-Talom joined Halifax on loan from Guiseley in February and scored four goals in 12 games, including memorable winners against Dagenham and Redbridge and Boreham Wood.

Wrexham boss Sam Ricketts says they saw off competition from Football League clubs for the striker’s signature.
