FC Halifax Town will host Maidstone United to the MBI Shay Stadium on Tuesday night ahead of a 7:45pm kick off in the National League.

A key player for The Stones will be defender Alex Wynter who has featured in every game except one so far, this season. The defender has been a solid player so far, this season also scores the odd goal to. Scoring 3 times in the league so far, making him Maidstone’s 3rd top scorer so far. He also scored in the FA Cup 4th round Qualifier 1st Leg against Enfield Town.

With Wynter’s impressive performances the defender has earned himself a chance to represent his country. Maidstone’s number 5 has been called up by England’s C team after he took part in a three-day training camp and boss Paul Fairclough has selected him to be part of the 16-man squad that will travel to Slovakia in November to play in the International Challenge Trophy Final. Team mate and striker for Maidstone Joe Pigott is also in the standby squad for the game.

Wynter hasn’t had the longest career with the player still only 24. However, the defender started his career at Crystal palace, but didn’t play a game for the London club. Since then he has played at League 2 side Portsmouth for a season, National League side Sutton United for a season and most recently League 2 side Colchester United. On the 4th of August, his contract with Colchester United was cancelled by mutual consent and he opted to join National League side Maidstone United the same day.

Although a defender, the Halifax players will have to keep an eye out for Wynter and hope he doesn’t add to his impressive goal tally this season against them on Tuesday night.
