The National League club Halifax Town has announced the entry of one of its players to the Love Island Villa this summer.
Every year when the Love Island team is announced, it’s often filled with social media stars, models, and sometimes the odd part-time soccer player.
As the show runs through pre-season, players will have to leave their clubs to join Love Island Villa, and other football has done just that.
The city of Halifax, which currently plays in the National League, has announced that its player, Jimmy Allen, has joined Villa Love Island for the final stage of the show, as shown in the tweet below.
Jimmy Allen decided to join the cast?? Island 2022, makes clear his intentions that the opportunity is very important to him.

Halifax did not appear to be too thrilled with the prospect of losing one of its players, after he ended the tweet with the phrase “It will be reviewed upon return.”
There are only a few weeks left until the football season, so leaving his club to Love Island would not have fared well with Halifax.
It’s clear that Allen is looking forward to pursuing a career in the world of television, with many of the former contestants now working in the media world after the show’s ending.
