Will Harris Signs For Spennymoor Town

Will Harris has become Moors’ fourth new signing of the summer after the talented young front man put pen to paper on a deal at The Brewery Field following his departure from Gateshead.

The South Shields born forward was on the books at Burnley and Hebburn Town during his younger days before earning a move to Sunderland in 2020.

Harris spent two years at The Stadium of Light and made his senior debut for The Black Cats in a Papa John’s Trophy game against Lincoln City in October 2021 before making a further five First Team appearances.

He gained further experience with a loan spell at Barrow during the closing part of the 2021/22 campaign, playing nine times in League Two for The Bluebirds as they escaped relegation.

The whole-hearted front man was released from Sunderland in 2022 and he spent last term at The International Stadium where he found the net four times in his 30 appearances in all competitions.

“We are delighted that Will has agreed to join us,” said Moors boss Jamie Chandler.

“When we speak about characters and the kind of profile we look for in players who are representing this Football Club, Will ticks a lot of the boxes.

“He is technically a very gifted striker, but he also possesses good physical attributes, which is important at the level we are playing at.

“Will have a very close relationship with Lewis (Dickman) so we know that will make Will tick and how to get the best out of him, so we are excited to see him develop and score goals in a Moors shirt.”

Harris has been handed squad number 7 and his move to Moors is subject to the usual clearance from The Football Association and National League.
