Hall in the Game

YELLOWS have double-boosted their first-team squad with the addition of a player and a coach in the singular shape of experienced midfielder Asa Hall.


Asa has ended six seasons on the English Riviera with Torquay United to come to the Ian Moorcroft Stadium, where he will combine playing with coaching duties.


He has a wealth of experience from which to draw for both roles, having amassed more than 600 competitive games in a 19-year career that began at Premier League Birmingham City and has included seven EFL clubs, as well as three in the National League.


Asa, now 37, has enjoyed two successful Wembley appearances during that time, winning the 2009 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in an otherwise miserable season for Luton Town, and helping York City to the 2017 FA Trophy.


He has also been involved in two promotion-winning campaigns, heading Cheltenham’s 2015-16 drive into the EFL and guiding Torquay out of National League South three seasons later.


Asa’s footballing odyssey began at home town Wolverhampton Wanderers before he turned professional at Birmingham. Although he did not play for the Blues’ first team, he represented England at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 levels and enjoyed loan spells at League Two sides Boston United and Shrewsbury Town.


He moved on to Luton Town and then Oxford United before returning to Shrewsbury. Loan spells at Aldershot and back to Oxford followed before he joined Cheltenham, overcoming a serious calf injury on his debut to go out on loan to York and win the FA Trophy.


He then had a season at Barrow before, in the summer of 2008, he moved to Torquay, where he became captain and made more than 200 appearances for the Gulls.


Welcome to Ladysmead, Asa.  

Asa Hall is available for sponsorship for the 2024-25 season. If you would like to sponsor him, or for further details, please email

A great signing, being able to play in defence and midfield. Keeping him match fit could be crucial for a play offs push! Good luck Asa!
