Halifax confirm Brown release

Halifax RLFC winger Alex Brown has left the club my mutual consent.

The 28-year-old joined Halifax from Batley Bulldogs ahead of the 2015 season but failed to establish himself at The Shay.

He eventually went on loan back to the Bulldogs, were he scored 14 tries in 13 appearances.

Brown is now expected to return to Batley after John Kear told TotalRL in November that he was keen to bring him back on a permanent basis.

Football Manager Ian Croad said: “Alex needs to be playing rugby and his options at Halifax were extremely limited.

“I’m sure we will be seeing him on the field somewhere else this season.”
