Mark Halstead

Player Stats


The goalkeeper joined Shrewsbury in June 2014 after leaving Blackpool, his home town club.
Mark once played in the Premier League for the Tangerines, coming on as a sub against Chelsea, but first team chances were hard to come by at Bloomfield Road owing to the consistency of Matt Gilks, a former Shrewsbury loanee.
Mark had loan spells away from Blackpool with Burscough, Hyde, Kettering, Barrow and Stockport County before joining Town on an initial 2 year deal.
Halstead made only one league appearance in his first season at the club, as a substitute, but went ton to make 16 league appearances in the 2015/16 season, plus a further three in the FA Cup- keeping a clean sheet against Cardiff City in the 3rd round.
He signed a new one year deal in the summer of 2016 and is hoping to nail down a first team spot.
