THEIR season might be over, but for Harrogate Town boss Simon Weaver the hard work has only just begun.

The 2012/13 campaign promises to be a cracker with FC Halifax, Guiseley and Bradford Park Avenue all in the mix.

Off the pitch work has started on the levelling of the Wetherby Road playing surface, which will mean playing the majority of pre-season fixtures away.

“There’s lots going on,” said Weaver.

“The ground work is well underway. There are going to be some good fixtures coming up. We’re looking at games against Knaresborough Town, Harrogate Railway, Ossett Albion, Tadcaster Albion, Middlesbrough and Blackburn, which will be confirmed later.

“Then there will be a game to officially open the new pitch.

“We’re also set for a tour to Belfast. I did that at Lincoln and it was good. We’ll get a flight over, play a few games, have a night out, and then come back, we’re all looking forward to that.”

Weaver has pencilled in a fixtures against well known NI side Crusaders on July 28.

He also revealed the club will release more news about pre-season signings next week.
