FC Halifax Town’s new signing Jack Redshaw says he was “welcomed with open arms” by his new teammates but was left disappointed by the result against Torquay United.
The Shaymen fell to a 4-2 defeat against the promotion-chasing Gulls, with Redshaw coming on for his debut during the second half of the match.
Town were behind in the game when he came on, but whilst on the pitch the former Salford City and Morecambe striker saw the Shaymen score two goals.
“I came on with us 3-0 down and it’s hard to come on in a game like that,” Redshaw told Shaymen TV immediately after the game. “We pulled some goals back, but we lost and it’s not good enough”.
Redshaw, a 68th minute substitute for Jack Earing, says he is “looking to get more game time” as he returns from a lengthy injury sustained whilst at previous club Salford.
“I’ve only had one training session with the lads, but everything about the club is good. My first impressions are good and I’m looking forward to getting going”.
When asked his preferred position the former Manchester City man replied “I like to play behind a front man, or I will play up top, whatever I need to do to get game time on the pitch”.
