FC Halifax Town were defeated 2-1 away at Colne in the final pre-season outing.

Town boss Chris Millington selected a different starting XI giving game time to a further 11 players following the 3-0 win over Curzon Ashton earlier in the day but named the same substitutes in both games.

The home side went ahead on 7 minutes with Lucas Weaver firing home from the edge of the box after Colne had dispossessed Festus Arthur

New signing Rob Harker equalised for the Shaymen on 33 minutes, however Colne won the match with just a minute left as Aaron Turner headed home a freekick at the far post.

Next up for the Shaymen is a return to league action with the long trip to Barnet on Saturday, 3pm kick-off.
