Woking forward James Daly has completed a permanent transfer to League Two side Harrogate Town, as confirmed by a statement on the club’s website.
The 23-year-old played a major role for the National League side last season, helping them to reach the playoffs as the surprise package of last season, but they fell short right at the end.
Who is James Daly?
The forward was a product of the Crystal Palace academy and remained at Selhurst Park until January 2020. This is when he signed for Bristol Rovers for an undisclosed fee and also had a stint with Stevenage.
Daly joined Woking on a free transfer last summer and made 37 appearances in all competitions for the club. During this time, he scored seven goals for the club and will now look to kick on in League Two next season.
Woking were one of the division’s standout performers last season as they reached the play-off places last season. The club competed with Chesterfield for 3rd place all season but fell just short of the top three.
The club lost 2-1 to Bromley in the play-off quarter-final’s and will be back in the National League next season. They will also be keen to bounce back and go again in the next campaign.
What’s been said?
Upon signing for the League Two side, the club’s manager Simon Weaver stated…
“He’s an exciting player who plays on the front foot and has the ability to change games with his energy and presence on the field, I’m sure he is a player that will excite the fans.”
James Daly had a terrific 2022/23 campaign for Woking, especially off the back of a tough stint with both Bristol Rovers and Stevenage in recent seasons.
He is an exciting signing for Harrogate Town and will join the club full of confidence and keen to make a significant impression on League Two next season.
