Falkirk have secured their second signing of the summer window, signing former Motherwell defender Ben Hall.

The centre-back was last with Partick Thistle, spending time there during the first half of this season. He’ll spend the second half with the Bairns, who he has signed a six-month contract with.

Hall’s big break came in the 2015/16 season with the Well, where he made 20 Premiership appearances. He thrived in Mark McGhee’s side, with the likes of Stephen McManus and current Bairn Morgaro Gomis there to guide him.

It earned him a move to Brighton. No senior appearances were registered with the Seagulls but he did spend a spell out on loan at Notts County.

Lee Miller is delighted to have this deal over the line. He says that both he and David McCracken are ‘excited’ about Hall’s Bairns potential.

“We are really, really, pleased to get the deal for Ben over the line,” he said. “He made a big impact in the Premiership at Motherwell before moving down south and continuing his development at a Premier League club.

“Things maybe haven’t quite gone for him recently, but we believe we have a great player on our hands. He is still young and myself and David are really excited about the impact we believe he can make here.”
