Harrogate Town's ambition attracts ex-Crystal Palace and Fulham winger
Harrogate Town’s newest recruit cited the club’s ambition as the main reason behind his decision to sign on at Wetherby Road for 2019/20.
Skilful winger Brendan Kiernan became Simon Weaver’s third capture of the summer when he arrived from National League South play-off finalists Welling United on Saturday.
“When I met with Simon Weaver he told me the club’s ambitions and I wanted be part of the journey,” Kiernan said.
“I’ve seen the way Harrogate play and I’m looking forward to adding to the squad, helping the boys out and hopefully a good season here.”
Kiernan scored 15 goals and assisted 12 for Welling last term, helping them to a third-placed finish in English football’s sixth tier.
Prior to that, the 26-year-old midfielder had played a big part in Hampton & Richmond's promotion to National League South, picking up their player of the year award in the process.
