Harvey Appointed Permanent Halifax Boss

57-year-old had been in caretaker charge.

FC Halifax Town have announced that Jim Harvey has become the club's permanent manager.

The former Morecambe and Stalybridge boss had been caretaker charge since the dismissal of Darren Kelly following the 6-3 home defeat to Braintree Town last month.

Harvey, 57, has since seen the club go unbeaten with three wins and two draws from his five games in charge including a 4-1 away victory at Gateshead, 4-2 at home to Dover Athletic and 5-0 in the FA Trophy at home to Tamworth.

He has signed a deal until the end of the 2015/16 season.

A statement on the club's website said: "We wish Jim well starting with the big Christmas games which sees the Shaymen travel to Sincil Bank on Saturday and then two home games against Wrexham (Mon 28th December) and Lincoln City (Sat 2nd January)."
