Nelthorpe Gives Halifax Extra

A welcome opportunity for first team football has befallen talented Rovers midfielder Craig Nelthorpe, as the youth team graduate has joined Halifax Town on a month long loan deal. Despite impressive performances in pre-season and from the bench Nelthorpe has been unable to force a way into Sean O’Driscoll’s talented squad and so moves to the Shay for some competitive action.

Nelthorpe will join with another young Rovers player at the Blue Square Premier side, with central midfielder Anthony Griffith already on loan at Halifax. However, it could be a while before the two link up on the pitch as Griffith sits out a five match ban after his third red card of the season.
