Swap Shop! Trade Off As Southwell And Garner Switch Sides

FC Halifax Town and Guiseley have pulled off an unofficial swap deal.

The Shaymen have signed Lions’ striker Dayle Southwell while going in the other direction is defender Scott Garner.

Southwell, 24, scored seven times in just 18 games for Guiseley and it’s a case of getting his man six years on for Town manager Jamie Fullarton.

”I first came across Dayle in 2013 when he broke into the Grimsby first team as a teenager where I tried to sign him for Bolton Wanderers,” he said.

“Unfortunately it never happened for one reason or another but I have tracked his progress since and after six years I am delighted to finally get the opportunity to work with him.

“It has been a long drawn out process over recent weeks,which has required patience and hard work of people behind the scenes at the club in order to make this happen.

“I have no doubts the effort by all involved to bring Dayle to the club will pay dividends with what he will contribute on the pitch.”
