Two in as Terriers prepare for new season

Bedlington Terriers have announced two new signings ahead of the 2013-14 season, with a familiar face returning.

Former player James Harmison has re-signed to the club having been part of the successful Terriers side in the 1990s.

He said: “I was fortunate to play in a great Bedlington side and I am delighted to be returning to the club.”

Harmison had nine seasons with Bedlington after signing as a 17-year-old, winning three league titles, two Northumberland Senior Cups and two League Cups under Tony Lowery and Keith Perry.

Perry stated: “We are pleased to welcome James back, who will be remembered for some outstanding displays at the heart of the defence.”

In addition, Terriers have acted quickly to snap up promising young keeper Sean McCafferty.

McCafferty, a product of New Hartley and who played for Northumberland County Under-18s as a 16-year-old for two seasons, has played for Ashington Colliers and latterly North Shields.
