Halifax have confirmed that Oliver Waite and Fraser Stroud have left the club by mutual consent.

The duo made their senior debuts for the Panthers in their 1895 Cup tie against Sheffield in 2019 but then found game time limited. They will now seek playing opportunities elsewhere.

Halifax coach Simon Grix said: “Both Oliver and Fraser have been good to have at the club but unfortunately their time with us has come to an end.  

“After such a long lay-off they need to be playing regularly when things open up and and after assessing where they sit in the squad I feel we cannot offer them that.

“They have added to the group in the time they have been here and been a credit to themselves in their efforts but with no clear path to playing in my team it isn’t in their interests to keep them hanging on.

“They leave with our thanks and best wishes for the future.”
