Double Delight | Duo Sign from Halifax

posted in: First Team News, News | 0

We can today confirm the signings of Goalkeeper Tom Scott & Midfielder/Defender Ted Lavelle, each on a 28-day loan from FC Halifax Town. 

Goalkeeper Tom Scott joins with experience as a youth at Leeds United and Manchester City, coming through the latters’ books as a youngster and progressing from u18 level to u23 level.

He played twice against Football League opposition for Manchester City’s u21s, in a 4-1 win vs Crewe in September 2018 and in a 3-3 draw vs Barnsley in December 2018.

Tom had trials at Birmingham and Watford, but instead made the move to Port Vale in January 2019, before joining Halifax Town in September the same year. 

He has enjoyed a loan spell with Nantwich Town since joining. He has made 8 appearances for Halifax’s First Team. 

Midfielder Ted Lavelle signed his first professional contract with the Shaymen in September 2023.

Lavelle previously played for Rochdale and Wigan, and has also been out on loan while at Halifax Town, playing for Colne FC. 

He made 11 appearances, and scored 6 goals across all competitions while on loan with Colne. 

Asked about the signings, Avenue’s Interim Manager & Sporting Director Thomas McStravick said; 

“Ted is a left footed player who is versatile and can play in more than one position. He is a ball player who can add a different dynamic to what we already have within the squad. He comes highly recommended and is someone who we have been aware of for some time. His quality will be there for all to see.”

“Tom is a great addition to the team. He is commanding, good with his feet and brings personality to the group which is exactly what we need at this moment. We look forward to working with him during this period. Thanks to Halifax for their professionalism in getting this deal done.”

Both Scott & Lavelle are available for selection in Saturday’s upcoming match vs Macclesfield, be there Avenue! For details click here!
