Early and personal life
Halliday was born in Redcar, North Yorkshire, and attended Prior Pursglove College in Guisborough, North Yorkshire.
Halliday had been playing for Redcar Town's youth team for 10 years when joining the Middlesbrough academy in 2010. He later returned to Redcar although Middlesbrough continued to monitor his progress. Halliday was spotted playing for Redcar by a Newcastle United scout before joining the club's academy in early 2013. He rejoined Middlesbrough after impressing their manager Dave Parnaby during a trial, signing a professional contract with the club in August 2013.
Having played regularly for Middlesbrough's under-21s in the 2014–15 season, Halliday joined League Two club York City on 14 November 2014 on a one-month youth loan to provide cover and competition for right back Marvin McCoy. He made his first-team debut in York's 3–2 home defeat to AFC Wimbledon on 13 December 2014, and having been named man of the match his loan was extended until 17 January 2015 two days after the match. He established himself in the team ahead of McCoy before receiving the first red card of his senior career for a two-footed tackle in York's 1–0 home win over Accrington Stanley on 26 December 2014. After serving a three-match suspension his loan at York was extended until the end of the season. Halliday scored his first career goal with an 85th-minute equaliser in a 1–1 draw away to Portsmouth on 2 May 2015 with a shot into the bottom right corner after capitalising on a slip from Dan Butler. He finished his loan at York with 24 appearances and 1 goal.
Halliday joined League Two club Hartlepool United on a one-month loan on 10 September 2015, as cover for the injured Jordan Richards and Michael Duckworth and the suspended Carl Magnay. He made his debut two days later in a 1–0 away loss to Exeter City, and finished the loan spell with six appearances. On 20 October 2015, he joined another League Two club, Accrington Stanley, on a one-month emeregency loan, debuting the same day in a 4–3 home defeat to AFC Wimbledon. Having made 11 appearances for Accrington, his loan was extended for the rest of 2015–16 on 4 January 2016.
On 31 August 2016, Halliday signed for League Two club Cambridge United on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee.
