Sheffield United Striker Loaned In

Harrogate Town would like to welcome 20-year-old striker Jake Wright to the squad after agreeing a loan deal with Sheffield United.

The Manchester-born frontman joins on a three-month deal having enjoyed spells in The National League with York City, Southport and Gateshead last season.

Wright, who turns 21 next week, made his Town debut on Tuesday night as a half-time substitute against Salford City and will be involved for Saturday’s trip to AFC Telford.

Prior to last season Wright was a regular in The Blades’ U21 set up, as well as turning out for Ilkeston and Hallam FC on loan deals.

During his time with Hallam FC, Wright netted 14 times in just seven appearances, scoring in every game he played.

Wright is described by his Championship owners as a strong and uncompromising forward with an eye for goal.
