Harrogate Railway boss seeks new faces as five leave

Have your say

Harrogate Railway manager Billy Miller is keen to attract new players to the Evo-Stik League Northern Premier - Fist Division North side before they return to training.

The squad is due to begin training in two camps on July 8, before coming together ahead of the July 13 friendly match against Silsden.

Central midfielder Chris Hanney and centre half Billy Williams have joined the club.

Manager Miller said: “We will come in for training the week after next, and we will be ready for the Silsden game.

“We are splitting the team, and will train where it is geographically best for everyone, before coming together ahead of that match.”

He continued: “We are looking at other players to sign, and hope to have them in place soon.”

However, rising Harrogate Railway prospect Danny Hull has been snapped up by Evo-Stik rivals Farsley AFC.

Hull made 34 appearances scoring five goals. He also played for Harrogate Town last season under dual registration, appearing as a sub’ against Stalybridge Celtic.

Alex Hallam, Damien Hopkins and Joe McCann have also left Railway while Dan Coupland has moved to America.

After the match at Silsden, Railway host Glasshoughton on July 23, before travelling to Daisyhill two days after. West Auckland Town arrive at Station View on July 27.

The annual cup crunch against Harrogate Town kicks off on August 10.
