FC Halifax Town have confirmed the signing of midfielder James Berrett.

Berrett, 29 has signed for his hometown club after being released by Grimsby Town in the summer, where he played alongside Shaymen defender Nathan Clarke. He started his career coming through the Academy at local neighbours Huddersfield Town, making 35 league appearances for the Terriers.

A move to Cumbria followed and he joined Carlisle United, making 170 league appearances in a four-year spell before signing for Yeovil Town in 2014. Berrett joined York City and then Grimsby Town.

He has represented the Republic of Ireland at U18, U19 and U21 level.

Town boss Jamie Fullarton told the official website: “I am delighted to have secured the signature of James. He has a wealth of experience playing in the Football League, he also compliments the group with his strengths he has as as footballer and is the type of person and character that will easily fit into the group and embrace what we are trying to do at the football club.”
