Halifax bring in Huddersfield forward on loan

Halifax have signed young forward Jon Luke Kirby on an initial month’s loan deal from Huddersfield.

Kirby, 20, is yet to make his first team debut for the Giants, but has featured eight times on dual-registration with League One side Hunslet this season.

Richard Thewlis, Giants Managing Director, said: “It’s an opportunity for Jon to step up a level and hopefully keep developing his experiences and playing time at a good club with genuine top five Championship aspirations.”
