Harrogate Town will operate on a full-time basis from the start of the 2017-2018 season
Simon Weaver’s men narrowly missed out on a place in the final of The National League North play-off’s in 2015-16, and as such, the decision has been made that going full-time will help the club achieve its ambitions going forward.
Boss Weaver believes the decision gives his side the best opportunity of progressing, regardless of what division we are in next season.
“We are moving into a new era for the club and we strongly believe that now is the right moment to announce our intention to go full-time. We have spoken about if for a while, but now we have the infrastructure in place to make this step up”
“We already have a professional mindset here, and I want every player to also have that mentality of being a full-time footballer”
“As a club we have been preparing for this transition for a while, and as such it is important for us to be honest and open with everyone involved as early as we possibly can. Making our intentions known now gives our players, staff and supporters the best possible opportunity to adapt and prepare for the exciting change that is ahead of us”
