Harrogate Town have signed three players on month long loan deals ahead of Friday night’s Buildbase FA Trophy clash with Darlington.
Lachlan Barr and Ellis Hudson (above) join the club from Bradford City, while Frank Mulhern makes the move from National League Guiseley.
Barr, an Australian central defender, signed for The Bantams in July having impressed while training for the club the season before.
The 23-year-old made his debut as a 77th
minute substitute against Walsall in August having enjoyed a brief spell in Germany before making his way to Yorkshire from Australia.
Also joining from the League One side is Bradford City’s 2016/17 Academy Player of the Year Hudson.
The left winger signed a two-year deal in September 2016 and impressed recently at The CNG stadium scoring two and setting up another two as Bradford City’s U23’s overcame our U21 side.
The 18-year-old made his debut in an EFL Trophy match against Stoke City U23’s, and his pace and dribbling ability has seen him feature for Bradford’s first team on a number of occasions since.
Our final addition is 20-year-old former Leeds United and Huddersfield striker Mulhern.
Mulhern started his career with The Terriers before joining Leeds United in 2009 and eventually signing a professional contract six years later.
Mulhern then returned to Huddersfield having been capped at both U18 and U19 level for Republic of Ireland before joining Guiesley, with a loan stint at Southport thrown in between.
We would like to welcome all three players to the club.
Going in the other direction is Mitch Curry, whose loan deal with the club has come to an end.
Mitch made seven appearances during his two months at the club, and will be fondly remembered for his late winner at Curzon Ashton.
We would like to think Middlesborough for allowing us to take Mitch on loan, and Mitch for his efforts at the club, while wishing him good luck for the future.
