George Hallahan came through the Basingstoke FC academy programme run in partnership with SCL and went on to sign for Basingstoke FC's first team in 2015.
Hallahan’s debut with the first team on July 11th saw him score two goals away at Beaconsfield before coming off the bench and scoring another brace against Reading u21’s on Saturday
Manager Jason Bristow has seen Hallahan’s goalscoring capabilities for Basingstoke Town Youth Team first hand over the last couple of seasons and has backed the forward to grow with the club “In his first 90 minutes of first team football football, George scored 4 great goals. He’s a great prospect and with help of the players around him, we all look forward to seeing him continue his development with us”.
Hallahan said on the new deal “I’m really happy to sign for my home town club again and so grateful for this big opportunity. It feels like my hard work has paid off and it’s a privilege to represent the club.
The forward scored 25 goals in 16 games for Jason Bristow’s academy side last season and won the golden boot award.
