Town Sign Quakers' Striker Beck

Harrogate Town have completed the signing of Darlington striker Mark Beck for an undisclosed fee.



The six-foot-five forward was The Quakers’ top scorer last season netting 18 league goals in a productive first season at Blackwell Meadows.

Prior to linking up with current York City Manager Martin Gray at Darlington, the 23-year-old came through the youth ranks at Carlisle United before a series of loan moves, including the likes of Falkirk and Wrexham, saw Beck included in the Scotland U19 set-up.

Despite missing some of the current season through injury, the Sunderland-born striker played all but one of The Quakers’ league games during 2016/17 before opting to join Simon Weaver’s side.

Beck, who scored during his side’s visit to The CNG Stadium last season, joins up with North-East duo Liam Agnew and Andrew Nelson at Town, while linking up again with Josh Falkingham who was also with Darlington last season.

Weaver said: "We are all delighted to sign Mark. We know that from playing against him and watching him play several times that he is a big threat in front of goal.

"His physical presence will compliment the current players within our set-up, and at twenty-three years of age his best years are ahead of him."

Everyone at the club would like to extend a warm welcome to Mark.
