TEENAGER Dominic Marie, a striker, has signed for Skrill Premier play-offs contenders FC Halifax Town from Winsford United.

The front man, on target for Blues three times this season in the North West Counties League, has impressed manager Neil Aspin while training with the Shaymen over the past few weeks.

He will spend the remainder of the campaign on loan with Blues.

Marie, 18, makes the same switch as Lois Maynard last summer.

The versatile defender has been a regular in the starting line-up during Halifax’s return to non-league’s top tier, amassing more than 30 starts in league and cup.

Midfielder Jake Hibbs has joined Winsford on loan from Halifax as part of the arrangement.
