Harrogate Town Sign Dylan Mottley-Hery On Loan
Vanarama National League side Harrogate Town have today confirmed the signing of Barnsley winger Dylan Mottley-Henry on loan until the end of the season. Described as a quick and tricky winger by his current employers, Mottley-Henry has experienced Sky Bet League Two and Vanarama National League football with loan spells away from Barnsley at both Tranmere Rovers and Chesterfield.
Henry, began his footballing career at Bradford City where he would go on to make his professional debut, before being offered his first pro contract under Phil Parkinson. The winger had loan spells at Altrincham and Bradford Park Avenue whilst at Valley Parade before joining current club Barnsley at the beginning of the 2016/17 season.
After assisting Tranmere Rovers win promotion last season whilst on loan at Prenton Park, the Sky Bet League Two side came back in for Mottley Henry at the beginning of the 2018/19 season, securing the winger on loan until January, though that spell was cut short in December following a hamstring injury.
Speaking about the signing Harrogate Town assistant manager Paul Thirlwell said, “He is an exciting player full of pace and power, Barnsley think a lot of him so we are pleased to get him on loan. He has been out on loan at Tranmere Rovers last season and helped them win promotion, so hopefully he is going to come in and make a really positive contribution.
We are upbeat and positive about the position we are in but to add that extra dimension to what is already a very strong squad is exciting for everyone. I think he’ll fit in well to the way we want to play, his difference is his out-and-out pace and power and hopefully he’s got that eye for a goal as well, adding that into the mix makes us stronger and improves that competition for places.”
Mottley-Henry will wear the number 22 shirt at Harrogate Town and will go straight into the side for the match this weekend against Dover Athletic.
