We are delighted to announce the capture of goalkeeper Pete Jameson who signs from York City.
The 29-year-old has just helped the Minstermen achieve promotion back to The National League and joins on the back of a season in which he played every minute, making a total of 56 appearances and keeping 19 clean sheets on his way to being named Clubman of the Year.
Standing at 6ft3, Jameson is known as ‘The City Wall' and lived up to that reputation in York's Play-Off Semi-Final away at Brackley, keeping out a penalty to see his side through to the final.
Before spending the last three seasons at the North Yorkshire side, the Sunderland born stopper had spent time at Blyth Spartans, Darlington, Sunderland RCA, South Shields (loan), and Consett.
Jameson was named in the National League North Team of the Season in his first campaign in Yorkshire and turned down a move to The National League last Summer in order to stay and help York earn promotion.
Manager Simon Weaver was “delighted” to have Jameson join his roster.
“We've been tracking Pete for some time at York and he's a really good all round keeper and looks the part. His shot stopping has been superb, he's a good size, commands his box, kicks well and so all round brings a lot to the table. He's played a major role in York's success this season, with both him and the Club doing superb to earn promotion.
“We're delighted to bring him to Harrogate and we know we've signed a really good lad as well. We do some digging on characters and he's spot on. As soon as we met him, we thought he had a really good way about him and I'm sure he'll do well for us and enjoy his time here.
“We want proper competition for places in every position and we're looking forward to seeing the respect and competition between all players. I'm sure will see that from day one, whether that's goalkeepers or any other position. It's about getting three points and as many as possible over the course of the season. Hopefully competition will drive up the levels of performance.”
We'd like to welcome Pete to The EnviroVent Stadium.
