Halifax Town have signed former Chester centre-half Matty Brown and ex-Wrexham striker Andy Bishop.

Bishop, 32, scored 10 goals in 42 appearances for Wrexham last season but was not offered a new contract by Dragons manager Gary Mills.

Former captain Brown was released by National League rivals Chester in May.

The 25-year-old made 28 appearances for City last season after signing from Chesterfield, but he was released due to concerns about an ankle injury.
