Alex-Ray Harvey Set to Join Guiseley
Former Claret and current Barrow midfielder Alex-Ray Harvey is set to join his former manager Paul Cox at National League club Guiseley AFC in a reported £10,000 deal, after the Lions turned professional last week.
Alex-Ray Harvey handed in a transfer request which was accepted by the directors at Barrow who then accepted an offer for Harvey from Paul Cox’s side after having their valuation met. The Lions are now negotiating personal terms with the midfielder and a deal is expected to be finalised before the weekend.
In his five-and-a-half years with Barrow, Harvey made 219 appearances for the club and Carson believes the thought of linking up with former boss Paul Cox is the main reason behind the midfielder’s decision to leave.
A club director said: “Obviously, Alex-Ray Harvey has an affinity for a former manager, that is understandable given his role in that system, but outside of that I have not been told anything directly about why he would want to leave.”
