Matthew Harris

1 August 2012


Striker Matt Harris bagged an impressive 18 goals in all competitions last season as he finished as our second-highest scorer behind Adam Somes.

A powerful and direct striker, Harris boasts numerous positive attributes, the best of which is arguably his expert hold-up play and technique around the opposition penalty box.

The 19-year-old, who sustained an ankle injury during pre-season, made his first competitive appearance of the current campaign in our home victory over Stalybridge Celtic.
