Marcus Harness

Burton Albion




Marcus made the headlines when, aged only 15, he made his first-team debut for Burton Albion in a pre-season friendly against Derby County. His competitive debut came under the management of Gary Rowett in September 2013, against Notts County in the Football League Trophy, whilst aged 17.

Marcus' Football League debut arrived in March 2014, when entering the field of play as a 68th minute substitute away to Scunthorpe. In August 2014 Marcus enjoyed perhaps his most memorable career highlight to that point - starring against Premier League opposition QPR in a giantkilling win in the Capital One cup, winning the free-kick that led to the solitary goal and earning the man of the match award.

As at the end of the 2014/2015 season, Marcus had made 21 appearances in the Football League and played his part in Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink's side earning promotion to League One. On the 7th August 2015, Marcus joined Ilkeston on a youth loan and amassed 20 appearances (scoring 2 goals and providing numerous assists) before on the 26th November 2015 he was loaned two divisions higher to National League club Aldershot. Two days later, Marcus appeared as a substitute for his Aldershot debut although a suspension acquired whilst at Ilkeston meant he did not appear again until 28th December.

Back at Burton in the New Year under new manager Nigel Clough, Marcus was named as an unused substitute for the League One fixtures against Coventry and Shrewsbury on 16th and 23rd January 2016 and retained his place on the bench thereafter - and on 27th February 2016 against Walsall, Marcus finally made his League One debut as a late substitute. Further substitute appearances followed as Marcus assisted Burton in their charge towards promotion.

After an impressive pre-season for Burton Albion, Marcus appeared in League Cup fixtures against Bury and then Liverpool before making his Championship debut against Derby County on 26th August 2016.
