Lloyd Kerry - Inducted into the Hall of Fame in recognition of his work in helping Town get into the Football League.
Midfielder Kerry, signed for Harrogate Town from Tamworth in the Summer of 2014. Although his time at Town as a player was a huge success earning him legendary status, he was plagued by injuries. He had a nightmare 2016/17 season with two serious, near career-ending injuries - a double fracture in his eye socket and fractured cheekbone followed by a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) - which together kept him out for almost a year. Despite these setbacks, Kerry would return to play a key role in Town’s promotion to the National League in 2018, and again, after spending much of the first half of the 2019/20 season out with an ankle injury, he returned and played a crucial role as Town secured promotion to the Football League.
Playing two seasons of League Football for Harrogate, Kerry revealed that he would retire at the end of the 2021–22 season. His last game, and 224th appearance for Town, was at home against Sutton United in May 2022 when he was made Captain and both teams formed a guard of honour as he came on to the pitch and he left to a standing ovation. For 2022/23, he became Town’s new Head of Recruitment
