FC Halifax Town are delighted to announce the arrival of 1.96m centre back Adam Alimi-Adetoro after he signed a two-year contract with Championship club Sheffield Wednesday.

Hailing from the Republic of Ireland, Adetoro came through the Leixlip United academy before making the switch to Athlone Town’s youth system. It wasn’t until a successful trial in the summer of 2022 that the centre-back made the switch to England with Sheffield Wednesday Under 21s. While with the Owls, Adetoro made his first senior appearance in February 2023 in a 1-0 defeat to Fleetwood in the FA Cup 4e round, coming on just after half-time. The centre-back spent time with Wednesday’s senior team in the summer of 2023, playing in a number of pre-season friendlies and being named in the squad that travelled to Spain for their training camp. After a strong campaign with the Under-21s, where they finished third in the Professional Development League North, Adetoro was one of six youth players to be released.
