Huddersfield footballer Ryan Hall is heading to the National League.

The 22-year-old winger or midfielder has been snapped up by Curzon Ashton after four impressive seasons at Brighouse Town.

Fenay Bridge-based Hall, who played junior football for Dalton Dynamoes and represented both Huddersfield and West Yorkshire Minors before breaking into senior football with the old Moldgreen club, is one of a number of new signings by Curzon boss John Flanagan.

The Ashton side are preparing for a new National League North campaign after finishing 11th in their first season at sixth-tier level following successive promotions through the Northern Premier League.

They will be facing the likes of FC Halifax Town, Bradford Park Avenue and Stockport County.

Hall helped Brighouse win promotion from the Northern Counties East League to the Northern Premier in 2014.

And he leaves with words of thanks for manager Paul Quinn and Rob Mitchell, now coach of Brighouse Town Ladies.

“It was Rob who encouraged me to come to Brighouse for a trial four years ago,” explained Hall, who is originally from Rawthorpe and works as a mechanical engineer.

“It was a big step up for me, and it took a little while to adjust, but as with the step up from the Northern Counties East to the Northern Premier, I have slowly but surely adjusted.

“Now I am stepping up again, and it’s a challenge, but one I am really looking forward to.

“I have had four great seasons at Brighouse, and Quinny has really brought me on.

“He has also played a part in getting me to Curzon Ashton, and it’s great to think he believes I am ready for this step.

“I have to pinch myself when I think it’s only two levels off the Football League, but I want to play at as high a level as I can.

“Curzon are a progressive club and not too far away when it comes to training and midweek games, which is important when you work as well as play football.”
