Republic of Ireland Under-21 defender Sean McGinty has joined FC Halifax Town on a month's loan from Rochdale.

The 21-year-old joined Rochdale in the summer from Sheffield United, after a spell on loan at Spotland last season.

He began his career as a trainee at Manchester United and went on loan to Morecambe, Oxford, Carlisle and Tranmere before joining the Blades.

McGinty made two appearances for Sheffield United last season and had a loan stint at Northampton.

Halifax, who were beaten in the FA Cup first round by Bradford on Sunday, face Grimsby in the Conference on Tuesday.
