FC Halifax Town have confirmed the signing of Jamie Jackson ahead of tonight’s pre-season and he will be part of the squad for tonight’s pre-season friendly at Mossley.
The 27-year-old striker Jackson scored the winning goal against League One side Notts County at the Shay on Saturday in one of two impressive performances on trial for the Conference Premier outfit.
Born in Sheffield, Jackson started his career at Chesterfield and has had spells with Matlock Town, Gainsborough Trinity, Sheffield, Worksop Town and Bradford Park Avenue.
In his trial spell Jackson has impressed and goalkeeper Phil Senior, the former Huddersfield Town stopper who is now in his seventh year at The Shay, said: “Jamie was saying how excited he is to be here and anything he can give to the club will be fantastic.
“He did something special against Notts County, it was a nice goal, a nice finish and he worked well when he came on to the pitch.
“Jacko has shown he has got a little bit of magic there himself, so I think it is good for competition and that is what we need.”
