Aaron Martin insists that he is only going to get better and better following his Harrogate Town switch.
Two prolific spells further down the non-league pyramid earned the 28-year-old striker a five-figure move to the National League title-chasers shortly before the 2019/20 campaign was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Following a goal-laded campaign at Brighouse Town where he netted 30 times, Martin made the step up to National League North with Guiseley last summer, and at one point this season he was the leading marksman in the top six tiers of English football having scored 14 goals in 12 matches.
Injuries and a couple of suspensions disrupted his time at Nethemoor somewhat, but he still finished up with a total of 17 strikes from his 23 Lions appearances.
These statistics make impressive reading, though as far as Martin is concerned, realising his ambition of turning professional means that his best is still to come.
“Full-time football is something that I’ve wanted for a long time, so I’m really excited to have signed for Harrogate,” he said.
“The challenges of being a part-time player and balancing football with work and family life isn’t easy, but once things get back to normal, I can focus fully on trying to better myself.”
