Halifax sign Sam Patterson from Barnsley on loan

FC Halifax have signed Barnsley midfielder Sam Patterson on loan until 5 January.

The 20-year-old is yet to make his senior debut for the Championship side.

He is likely to go straight into the Shaymen's squad for Tuesday's Conference Premier game at struggling Hereford United.

Neil Aspin's side have made a good start to the season and are currently in 10th place, but only three points outside the play-off places.
