The signing of Scott Brown is one which will help take Harrogate Town to the next level.
That is the firm belief of Sulphurites boss Simon Weaver having completed a deal to lure the experienced former England youth international away from League One Accrington Stanley earlier this week, the Harrogate Advertiser say.
Thirty-four-year-old midfielder Brown has enjoyed no fewer than five promotions throughout his career, a fact that appealed greatly to the Town chief as he attempts to plot a route out of the National League.
“I’ve always liked the way that Scott Brown plays football and the fact that he has five promotions under his belt means he possesses exactly the kind of know-how I’m looking for.
“He’ll add plenty of experience and a bit more nous. He’s creative, but he’s up for it at the same time. Having him and Josh Falkingham in the middle of the park will mean we’re more vocal as well.”
