Shaymen Borrow Rivals Striker

FC Halifax Town have taken striker Mike Fondop-Talon on loan from Vanarama National League rivals Guiseley AFC until the end of the season.

Twenty-four-year-old Fondop-Talom, who was previously with Whitehawk, was playing for Stanway Rovers in the Thurlow Nunn League when he caught the eye of then-Billericay Town manager Craig Edwards and, after impressing in an under-21 game at Great Wakering Rovers, he was immediately thrust into the Essex outfit’s first-team.

He marked his debut with a goal in a 6-0 home win over Metropolitan Police and scored 8 times in his first six matches and finished the season with 11 goals in all competitions before controversially switching to Margate in May 2016.

However, Gate pulled out of the deal after being informed by the FA that he wasn`t a `free agent` and therefore Billericay would be entitled to compensation.

Instead, Fondop-Talom eventually joined National League South side Oxford City in August 2016.

He spent part of the last pre-season on trial with SkyBet League Two side Cheltenham Town without managing to secure a contract.

He joined the Lions at the beginning of October and has made seventeen appearances and scored one goal.
