FC Halifax Town are delighted to announce the signing of Festus Arthur from Championship side Hull City.
Born in Hamburg, the centre back was in the Oldham Athletic academy before joining Stockport County in 2019. Arthur made 35 appearances for the Hatters during the 2019/20 season, scoring two goals, one of which came against the Shaymen. As a result of his good performances for Stockport, Arthur was named as the Grahame White Young Player of the Year and George Haigh Young Player of the Year.
Arthur then made the move to Hull, signing a three year deal. The defender made two appearances in his first season with the club, both coming in the EFL Trophy. Arthur then spent the first half of last season out on loan with Barrow in League Two making 15 appearances in all competitions, scoring once, before being recalled in January.
