Local lad Louie Swain began his footballing career at Bradford City at age 13 before joining Harrogate Town in 2014.

Swain originally joined as a striker, but was soon redeployed as a left back where he nailed down a place in Simon Weaver’s 2015/16 defensive unit.

The arrival of Ben Parker saw Swain seek regular football at Spennymoor Town at the beginning of the 2016/17 season, but the ex-Bantam returned to Town later on in the season and added 19 appearances to his total with the club.
