Jamaica international commits to Halifax

Jamaica international James Woodburn-Hall has signed a new one-year deal with Halifax.

The 24-year-old, who made his international debut for Jamaica last year, will spend his fifth season with Fax in 2020.

Halifax coach Simon Grix said: “James has been important for us this year with his versatility and showed glimpses of what he is capable of.

“Next year is an opportunity to stake his claim for a fixed position. I’ve told him on numerous occasions he is probably the most talented in the team and has all the tools to go as far as he wants.

“Consistency is the issue and we as coaches will work with him there but the challenge lies with James to produce.”

Woodburn-Hall added: “I’m buzzing to be doing another year at Halifax.

“I’m really enjoying myself at this club and it’s a place where I really feel at home.

“Hopefully we can grow into this next year, get in the play-offs and give the fans something to shout about.”
