Harrogate Town have announced the loan signing of Forest Green striker Josh March, who will join Simon Weaver’s squad until the end of this season.

Born in Stourbridge, the 23-year-old began his career with Alvechurch in 2015, becoming the club’s first contracted player in a decade in May 2017.

March then moved onto National League North side, Leamington, for the 2019-20 season, scoring 24 goals in just 26 appearances before signing for League Two side Forest Green Rovers in January 2020.

The striker scored twice for Rovers before the season was curtailed and his game time has been limited this season as he recovered from injury. March is now fit and raring to go, having joined up with the squad this week.

Simon Weaver said:

“He’s a clever type of centre forward who will get on the end of things, a real poacher and we’ve already seen that in training.”

“He gets across the front of defenders and his goals, enthusiasm and energy will be good for us.”

March will where number 24 and is eligible for Town’s away match against Cambridge on Saturday.
