MP congratulates Town on perfect start to football league life


MP for Harrogate & Knaresborough, Andrew Jones, has congratulated the Harrogate Town AFC team on their perfect start to life in the football league following the resounding 4-0 victory away at Southend United.

Goals from Jack Muldoon, Lloyd Kerry and Aaron Martin sealed the win for Harrogate Town AFC in their first game in the football league.

What a perfect start to the league battle.  And away from home too!  Town continue to keep Harrogate on cloud nine.  This is a great achievement for the team and undoubtedly demonstrates their ambition for the season.

Long may the team’s excellent form continue.  I am looking forward to attending home games at the EnviroVent Stadium to cheer the team on from the stands once restrictions allow.”
