Liam Gibson is our second Summer signing

2 June 2023

The club are delighted to announce the signing of versatile full-back Liam Gibson on a free transfer agreement.

A product of the Newcastle academy, the 26-year-old has so far enjoyed spells in League One & League Two with Accrington, Grimsby and most recently with Morecambe.

A battler on the pitch, Gibson has also experienced his fair share of battling off it, having overcome an 18-month battle with ulcerative colitis to continue his playing career.

After signing his two-year contract earlier today, Morecambe's 2022/23 Players Player of the Year said: “I'm buzzing to be here, as soon as I heard of the interest I was itching to come down and get signed, I can't wait to get started in July.

“I played here a few times with Morecambe and it just felt like a really homely football club, I couldn't get down here quick enough.

“I want to take the form I had at Morecambe last season and bring it here to Harrogate and hopefully we can push on as a team to have a good season, I enjoyed my time there but I'm a Harrogate player now and I'm focused on doing as well as possible.”

Head of Player Recruitment Lloyd Kerry added; “Liam has great experience at this level and knows what it takes to get out the league, last season he played 44 games in League One so he ticks a lot of boxes for us and we think he'll be a great signing.

“He's reliable, consistent, strong physically and is very calm on the ball and we really feel he can strengthen us.

“There were a lot of teams interested in Liam so we're absolutely delighted he chose Harrogate Town.”

Gibson will wear the number 30 shirt and signs a two-year deal with the club.
