City sign forward Alex Harris

By Ian Appleyard | 20th September 2018

Forward Alex Harris has today joined York City after being released by Scottish Championship club Falkirk.

Harris, 24, has made over 130 senior appearances in Scottish football and previously played for Hibernian, Dundee, and Queen of the South.

He was capped twice by Scotland at Under-19 level and played for Hibernian in the 2013 Scottish FA Cup final against Celtic at Hampden Park.

Caretaker-manager Sam Collins said: "Alex has been training with us for two weeks and I have been really impressed with how he has done.

"He scored in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Hartlepool last week and did well in another private game against Leeds on Tuesday afternoon.

"He is very attack-minded, very creative, and he fits in with the way we want to play. He is a right-footed forward player who is flexible enough to operate as a winger or in the number 10 role just off the front striker. He is a different type of player to what we have already got and his pedigree is also good."

Harris goes straight into the City squad for Saturday's FA Cup second qualifying round tie against Ashton Athletic at Bootham Crescent (kick-off 3pm).
