Fax release Moore to Rams, look to bolster squad

Halifax have ended the mystery surrounding the future of out of favour half back Gareth Moore, releasing the former Batley player to relegation threatened Dewsbury on a permanent deal.

Moore has looked an increasingly peripheral figure since the loss at Hull KR at in March, with Ben Johnston, James Woodburn-Hall and Connor Robinson being preferred alongside Scott Murrell at half back.

In that context, his exit is hardly a surprise, with coach Richard Marshall saying he was happy with his remaining playmaking options “at the moment”, although he did not rule out looking for reinforcements later in the summer.

Fax have confirmed they hope to announce a new recruit later this week, although Courier Sport understands that player is not a playmaker.
