Josh Falkingham, Warren Burrell and Liam Agnew have all agreed new contracts with Harrogate Town.

Midfielder Falkingham has signed a long-term deal just six weeks after captaining the side to victory in the National League North promotion Final.

The 27-year-old’s performances during his first season at the club saw him named in the National League North Team of the Season, as well as being selected as Town’s joint players’ player of the year.

Falkingham was one of five players to rack up over 50 appearances during a memorable first campaign at the CNG Stadium.

Another player who reached that landmark was Warren Burrell, who has also put pen to paper on a new deal.

The 28-year-old is among the current squad’s longest-serving players and has cemented himself as a real fans’ favourite.

While previously deployed in the centre of midfield, a switch to defence for the 2017/18 season proved to be a masterstroke with Burrell a consistently excellent performer at the centre-half.

Midfielder Liam Agnew has also agreed a new contract.

The 23-year-old has made 49 appearances since signing from Boston during 2016/17 and was a key part of last season’s promotion; with a memorable strike against York City a highlight.
