Harvey joins Stafford Rangers
Former Burnley player Alex-Ray Harvey has joined Stafford Rangers having spent the latter part of the 2018/19 season with Hednesford Town.
Alex-Ray, now 28, was in the successful Burnley youth team a decade ago that came so close to winning the Youth Alliance League and would have done so had many of the players not been involved in a fixture pile up in the last weeks of the season when they were also featuring for the reserve team that won the Central League.
He was a player who came as close as possible to making a first team debut without doing so having been named as a substitute, the first occasion I believe was the home win against Derby in the 2010/11 season.
His time at Burnley came to an end in the summer of 2012. He’d enjoyed loans at Fleetwood and Barrow by that time and he returned to Barrow on a permanent deal and remained there for over five years at which time he’d become their longest serving player.
The last couple of years have seen him less settled in terms of clubs. After almost 140 games for Barrow, he signed for Guiseley in October 2017 but left there during last season to sign for Hednesford.
He’s now joined Stafford Rangers, a club we once played in the 1st round of the FA Cup. That was back in the 1990/91 season when goals from Stan Collymore, Peter Mumby and Winston White gave us a 3-1 win, the first of those goals an own goal from the Stafford striker.Share this page :
