Hartlepool United have signed defender Neill Byrne from FC Halifax Town.
Byrne makes the move to the League Two newcomers for an undisclosed fee, linking up again with his former AFC Fylde manager Dave Challinor.
The 28-year-old’s previous clubs also include AFC Telford United, Macclesfield Town and Gateshead.
Pools boss Challinor told the club’s website: “Neill is someone I’ve worked with before; he was a big part of the success at Fylde.
“We tried to bring him in last season, but due to different circumstances, he went to Halifax.”
