Player Profiles - Ben Tomlinson

Ben joined the Reds in June 2019 after being released by Halifax Town at the end of the 2018/19 season.

Ben, 29, joins the Reds for a second spell after joining from Macclesfield Town for an undisclosed fee at the start of the 2012/13 season.

Tomlinson joined Halifax in July 2017 on a one-year deal with his most recent club prior to his move to the Shaymen being Carlisle United. He signed for United on a non-contract basis towards the end of the 2016/17 season.

Ben came through the youth ranks at Nottinghamshire side Worksop Town, before breaking through into the first team picture. Tomlinson then joined Macclesfield in 2011 where he scored six goals in 25 appearances including one of the fastest ever football league goals at 6.4 seconds against Morecambe.

Ben would move to the Impact from the Silkmen, for his first spell at the start of the 2012/13 season and was prolific in this time scoring 14 goals in 39 games. Other spells following his time at the Reds followed at Lincoln City, Barnet, Grimsby Town and Barrow.

Tomlinson then joined Halifax after a pre-season trial ahead of the 2017/18 season and scored four goals in 21 starts before being released at the end of the 2018/19 campaign, a season which saw two big injuries set the forward back and resulted in him missing the final months of the 2018/19 season.
