Tom Gilmore joins Halifax for 2020

Halifax RLFC have confirmed that Tom Gilmore will join the club for the 2020 Betfred Championship season.

Gilmore will join from fellow Championship side Widnes Vikings for whom he has scored over 200 points. 

Halifax boss Simon Grix said: “I’m really pleased to have got a player of Tom’s calibre on board. 

“Half back is a key position where you need an out and out player playing there. He understands the role and has his best years ahead of him which is exciting.

“Tom brings some Super League experience, a member of the England Knights squad only last year, with a cool head and a quality kicking game. 

“I expect him to bring the game management skills required for that position, skills we have lacked over the last few years.” 

Tom Gilmore said: “I’m excited for the new fresh start, and to get out of my comfort zone and go over to Yorkshire to play my rugby.”

Halifax currently sit 8thin the Betfred Championship and preparing for their final game of the 2019 Betfred Championship against York City Knights.
