Deacey, 26, has also previously featured for Scarborough Athletic, Farsley Celtic and Boston United.
He said: “I’m delighted to join the club, I know John Francis from clubs I’ve been at previously and when he mentioned the gaffer was interested in signing me, it was a no-brainer for me.
"It’s a club that is on the up and I want to be a part of that. My target for the season is personally to contribute with goals and assists. I always try and get 10 goals and 10 assists a season so if I can do that, I’ll be happy.
"In terms of my ambitions club-wise, I want to get Brighouse into the league above and that’s what the hopes and ambitions are for everyone at the club so it seems like a good place to be right now.”
