Harrogate Railway Athletic have announced that Paul Beesley has agreed to become their new manager with immediate effect.

Beesley started his semi-professional career at the Rail, has previously played for Harrogate Town and spent some time at Station View at the end of last season on his return from a long-term injury.

He joins Railway from Scarborough Athletic, where he has been playing this season.

He said “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to be manager of Harrogate Railway.

I would like to thank the board for choosing me and I hope to do my best and bring success to the club.”

Beesley’s first game in charge of the club will be an away game at Barton Town Old BOys in the NCEL Premier League on Saturday
