Full Contact client Harry White last night made his professional debut, appearing for Barnsley in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Harry, who joined the League One club on transfer deadline day from non-league club Gloucester City, had been an unused substitute in the Football League last weekend, but was delighted to join the action against Bradford City last night in the 65th minute – thus making his professional debut little more than six weeks after turning leaving the amateur ranks. With the score at 1-1 when Harry came on, Barnsley went on to win 2-1 and progress to the next round of the cup competition.
Harry commented “When the gaffer gave me the nod I took a deep breath and to just come on in front of all the fans was just unbelievable. All of the lads were encouraging me through the game and I got a nice little round of applause from all the boys in the dressing room afterwards, so that was a nice touch.”
Harry White is the latest in a long line of players identified by Full Contact in the non-league game to make the transition, and we wish him and Barnsley all the best for the remainder of the season.
