FC Halifax Town sign defender James Bolton

FC Halifax have signed former Macclesfield defender James Bolton.

The 20-year-old ended last season on loan with the Shaymen, making 14 appearances and scoring once.

He is the third player to commit to Neil Aspin's side this week after ex-Cambridge defender Kevin Roberts and former Silkmen striker Scott Boden agreed deals on Tuesday.

The Shaymen, who finished fifth last season, have not disclosed the length of the contract.
