FC Halifax Town are pleased to announce that Academy graduate, Frankie Sinfield has penned his first pro contract with the Club.

Frankie has been in the Youth Team programme for three seasons training regularly with the First Team.  He was part of the Youth Team squad that lifted the National League Academy Cup in 2021/22 and a named substitute in last season’s FA Trophy Final.  Last season he enjoyed loan spells with Thackley and Stalybridge Celtic and received Thackley’s Young Player of the Season award.

Manager, Chris Millington said: “I’m thrilled to offer Frankie his first professional contract with the Club.  Frankie has trained regularly with the First Team during his time with the Youth Team and performed well in senior football last season.  Alongside training with the First Team, it is likely Frankie will gain further experience on loan to support his progression into the senior game.

“It is refreshing to see players progressing through the pathway in the Club and be awarded with a contract.  This is a testament to the on-going work across the Club from First Team, Youth and Academy staff.

“We have seen with the amount of game time afforded to U23s last season that this Club is keen to develop young players.  There is no healthier way of strengthening a squad than a young player or academy player making it through to the First Team, we are working to establish this pathway and in doing so we can be confident many of our talented young players can fulfil their potential and bridge the gap towards the First Team.”
