Vanarama National League side Halifax Town have signed former New Saints forward Scott Quigley on loan until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old was recalled from his season-long loan at League Two side Port Vale by parent club Blackpool.

He has since moved to Halifax Town who are currently 17th in the fifth tier of English football.

Speaking to FCHalifaxTown.com, manager Jamie Fullarton said: ‘I am delighted to have secured the signing of Scott on loan for the rest of the season.

“With Scott’s experience and proven record at this level last season, it is no wonder that we faced stiff competition for his signature from a number of Clubs higher.

“Having met Scott, I was able to convince him why Halifax was the best place for him to come.

“Not only will Scott add another dimension to our squad and hopefully bring goals, but his personality and character will also fit seamlessly into the group.

“He is a great addition and a real coup for us to get such a signing across the line.”

A product of The New Saints academy, where he spent a total of five years, scoring 25 goals in 86 appearances, Quigley earned a move to Football League side Blackpool in 2017.

Quigley previously played for Caersws, Carmarthen Town and the Cefn Druids on loan whilst contracted to professional outfit The New Saints.

He made just one start for the Valiants and saw most of his time at Port Vale as a substitute, coming on 11 times.
