Brendan Kiernan looking forward to the new challenge at Harrogate Town after a season to remember at Welling United

Saturday 25th May 2019

BRENDAN KIERNAN says he is looking forward to the new challenge after leaving Welling United today to sign for Motorama National League side Harrogate Town.


The 26-year-old winger helped Steve King’s side finish in third-place in the Vanarama National League South last season but they fell at the final hurdle as they lost 1-0 at Woking in the Promotion Final.

Kiernan posted his goodbye statement on his Twitter account, ending it by saying that he is looking forward to the new challenge away from Park View Road.

“A massive thank you to everyone at Welling for a season to remember,” said Kiernan.

“As a team we left it all out there and stuck together for the whole season.

“There’s good people at the club and great support from the stands.

“Thanks to all of the staff for the support and belief to help us boys nearly go all the way.

“I spent the season with some top boys who I’ll stay in touch with.

“I’m hoping for success for the club in the season ahead, hope they go one better than last season.

“Looking forward to the new challenge.”

Harrogate Town finished their debut season in the top-flight in sixth-place last season and manager Simon Weaver has enticed Kiernan up to North Yorkshire.

"When I met with Simon Weaver he told me the clubs ambitions and I wanted to be part of the journey," Kiernan told

“I’ve seen the way Harrogate play and I’m looking forward to adding to the squad, helping the boys out and hopefully having a good season here.”

French winger Nassim N’Ghoul announced his departure from Park View Road on Twitter on 16 May 2019.
