FC Halifax Town travel to Barrow on Saturday for their first game in the FA Trophy this season.

Here we’ll look at some of the players that have pulled on the shirt for both sides.

Ben Tomlinson:

The first man we’ll look at is the only current Shaymen on the list. The 29-year-old was influential at the start of this season after being one of few to stay in the squad from last season. The wideman picked up four assists, creating several chances and goal scoring opportunities from corners to make himself an important part of Jamie Fullarton’s squad.

It’s good to see the former Barrow man warming up with the team before games and hopefully, he’ll be ready for action again soon.

Tomlinson only had a loan spell at Barrow while he was at Barnet, but he did play 14 goals for The Bluebirds.

Danny Forrest:

After signing for FC Halifax on loan from Bradford, he continued to sign for the club permanently and went on to play 107 games for the club.

The forward who signed in 2005 was at Halifax for 3 years where he scored 14 goals. He went on to play for a few clubs and eventually joined Barrow in 2010 where he only played 14 games. He’s now a manager at Silsden.

Adam Quinn:

The centre-back was at the club for 6 years between 2002 and 2008 playing 194 games for the club. Again, Barrow signed Quinn on loan where he was at the club for only 3 months.

Malcolm Russell:

Russell was with the club for 7 years back in the sixties. He was at Halifax from 1962-69 and played 184 games. He never scored for the club. His other clubs include Huddersfield and obviously Barrow.

Jon Shaw:

Shaw was only at the club for a year. He had a very successful year at the club playing 37 games and scoring an impressive 20 goals.

He went on to be impressive for the rest of his career. He had successful spells at Gateshead twice and Burton Albion.

Others include: Frank Betteridge, Phil Bolland, Joe Carroll, Alf Dark, Danny Forrest, Eric Harrison, Kevin Sandwith, Connor Thomson, Shaun Tuton.
