FC Halifax Town travel to Eastleigh this Saturday (24th February) looking for another three points.

The home side are currently 12th in the league and a key member of their squad is defender, Andrew Boyce.

The 6ft 4 centre-back started his career with Doncaster Rovers in 2006 when he joined the club on a youth contract. After turning professional in 2008, Boyce went on loan to Worksop Town before moving to King’s Lynn in 2009.

After making 18 league appearances for The Linnets, Boyce signed for Gainsborough Trinity where he helped the side reach the 2011/12 Conference North Play-Off finals. Despite his side losing, the defender got a move to Lincoln City in May 2012.

After 60 matches in an Imps’ shirt, the former Doncaster youngster moved to Scunthorpe United, initially on loan before signing permanently in January 2014. The defender had to go in goal against Bristol City in 2015 after United saw two of their goalkeepers break their arms.

Loan spells at Grimsby Town, Hartlepool United and Notts County followed before the 28-year-old returned to Blundell Park permanently in Summer 2016.

After a year at Grimsby, Boyce moved down south to National League side, Eastleigh. Playing against Halifax this season, the defender once again had to don the gloves, going in goal in a game which saw both goalkeepers sent off.
