Saul Halpin (born 25 October 1991) is an English midfield footballer who currently plays for Bideford AFC, after being released by Torquay United.

Career[edit]

Torquay United[edit]

Halpin came through United's College set-up and youth team before being offered a professional contract during the 2009-2010 season. His progress impressed the United coaching staff as well as more senior players within the first team squad and Torquay manager Paul Buckle was quick to praise the left midfielder: 'We have extended Saul's contract and he is now committed to the club for a further three years which is fantastic.

'The special thing about Saul is his age. He has come back looking very bright; he can go past people and has already upset a few of the senior players!'

Halpin signed his second professional contract at Torquay United on 9 July 2010, months after signing his first professional contract, signing a three-year contract extension.[3]

His Torquay debut came as a second half replacement for fellow winger Danny Stevens in an FA Cup clash with Crawley Town on 29 January 2011. His league debut came several days later, where, once again, he came on as a second half substitute for Danny Stevens.

In March 2011, Halpin had a trial with Derby County and impressed with a hat-trick in a 7–1 win against Nottingham Forest reserves.[4]

In March 2013 Halpin was loaned to Bideford A.F.C. for one month, along with another Torquay player, Karl Baker.

At the end of the season, he was released by Torquay United along with 6 other players.[5]
