Harrogate Town vs Exeter City

Supporters can now read our Exeter City match day programme below...

We speak to defender Jake Lawlor, who revealed he was our number one fan during the 2019/20 National League Play-Offs...

As the season halted in March, Simon Weaver had contacted the defender to say he wanted him to join for the playoffs if transfers were allowed. When it was confirmed that couldn’t happen, Weaver gave Lawlor his word that no matter which division Harrogate would be in for the 2020/21 season, Lawlor would be offered a contract.

It meant for the playoffs, Jake Lawlor became Harrogate Town’s number one fan.

“I was watching the final, wanting Town to go up but I did think is there more chance of me signing if you stay in the National League?”, Lawlor chuckles.

“I was rooting for Harrogate to go up and the fact they did was just incredible, especially with the journey the club has been on. It’s so tough to get the National League but Harrogate just carried the momentum that they’d been building over the previous couple years.”


Also in our latest edition, we take a closer look at our opponents who are the leading scorers in League Two, but have suffered Play-Off heartbreak in three of the previous four seasons!
