Vanarama National League North new boys FC Halifax Town have confirmed the signing of striker Tom Denton from North Ferriby United on a two-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The former Huddersfield Town man follows in the footsteps of new manager Billy Heath dentsand left-back Josh Wilde from the 2016 National League North play-off victors.

Denton struck 21 league goals last term to assist the Villagers’ promotion-push and he was also a key figure as they famously claimed the FA Trophy in 2015 after beating the odds to defeat Wrexham at Wembley.

Despite not making an appearance for the Terriers during his two-year spell, the prolific striker, who turns 27 next month, has also scored goals for Wakefield, Mossley AFC and Worksop Town.

Also joining Denton in making the switch from North Ferriby is their former skipper, Liam king.

King becomes Billy Heath’s third signing from his former club – and fourth overall after the arrival of Guiseley AFC’s goalkeeping stalwart Steven Drench – for an undisclosed fee.

Midfielder King captained Ferriby to FA Trophy success at Wembley in 2015 and also got his hands on the National League North play-off silverware after a thrilling victory over AFC Fylde last month.

And although that ensured promotion to the top flight of non-League football, King will be looking to play another key role in the North as Town aim to bounce back into the National League at the first attempt following their final-day relegation.

The energetic, box-to-box midfielder joined Ferriby from Matlock in 2012 and made it a half-century of goals for the Villagers last November.
