Hartlepool United legend Ritchie Humphreys has joined Evo-Stik League South side Sheffield FC.


The former Sheffield Wednesday star made his debut in Sheffield’s 3-0 defeat at Carlton Town on Saturday.

Since making his Premier League debut for the Owls in 1995, Humphreys went on to play for the likes of Cambridge United and Port Vale, during a career that saw him make over seven hundred appearances.

His longest stay at a club was during his time at Hartlepool, where he made just under five hundred appearances.

Humphreys was part of the Pools side that came within minutes of taking the club into the Championship, as they led 2-1 against former club Sheffield Wednesday in the League One play-off final in 2005.

However, his former club would go on to seal promotion into the second tier with a 4-2 win in extra time.

He left SkyBet League Two club Chesterfield in June after four years with the Spirerites.

Humphreys has also been Chairman of the PFA since 2013.

Sheffield FC have also confirmed that they have signed Scunthorpe United youngster Leslie Sackey on loan.
