Harrison the latest piece in Chelmsford’s jigsaw

CHELMSFORD CITY have announced the signing of exciting attacking midfielder, Callum Harrison from Isthmian League North outfit, AFC Sudbury.

The 23-year-old found the net eleven times for Sudbury during the last campaign. Previously, the players came through the Colchester United academy before enjoying spells with Needham Market and New Zealand-based East Coast Bays.

Speaking to www.chelmsfordcityfc.com about his latest acquisition, Clarets boss, Robbie Simpson, enthused: “Callum was brought to my attention by Steve Pitt and I started to do my due diligence with Glenn Skingsley watching clips and getting reports from managers and players that have played with and against Callum. 

“The response was overwhelmingly positive. A young, hungry, energetic, two-footed central midfield player that wants to play at the very highest level possible. 

“I feel the squad last season was lacking a real goal-scoring threat from the middle of the park and Callum certainly has an eye for goal with seventeen last season and eleven this season before it was cut short. I’m excited to see him in a Claret shirt.”

Meanwhile, Harrison is clearly looking forward to getting started with the Vanarama National League South side, adding: “ My hopes for next season personally is to establish myself at the level and to reach any personal goals that I set myself in terms of stats. 

“More importantly, I hope to help the team push for promotion as Chelmsford City is a big club and unsurprisingly this is the aim. I’m buzzing to get started at the club and aim to hit the ground running.”
