Ex-Rotherham United, Oldham Athletic and Tranmere Rovers boss Ronnie Moore is keen on returning to management with FC Halifax Town.

The National League side are looking for a new manager after parting company with Jamie Fullarton.

Moore, who is 66 years-old, has been out of the dugout since leaving Eastleigh in November 2016.

He is a vastly experienced manager who has been in charge of 922 games in his career with previous spells at Southport, Rotherham, Oldham, Tranmere, Hartlepool United and Eastleigh.

He has expressed his interest in the Shaymen vacancy and told the Halifax Courier: “It would be a job that would interest anybody. It’s a decent club, run the right way. For me, it’s a big club, a former Football League club.”

“I was at Eastleigh in the National League and did a good job down there. I know non-league quite well. It’s difficult to get out of that league because there are so many ex-league clubs in there, but you just need to be organised. It doesn’t mean you have to spend riches for it.”

He added: “It’s a case of getting the right people playing in the right positions, and having a system of play that will get you out of that league. It would be a great challenge but I’d love to get my teeth into it. “The experience I’ve got as a manager in the league and non-league is vast – over 900 games and I think it’s crying out for that.”
