Harry set to take the Silk Road
Date posted: 08-07-2012
Young attacking midfielder Harry Agombar is set for a move to Macclesfield Town following a week-long spell training with the ex-Football League side.
Agombar made his debut for the Club from the bench in November 2009 as a 16-year-old substitute for Callum Leahy in a 3-1 defeat against Chester City at The Recreation Ground. His full debut came a week later in a 2-0 home loss against Luton Town.
Following the Club’s relegation from the Conference, Harry joined Barnet on non-contract terms, but after a frustrating season, he re-joined the Blues at the start of last season. Partnering Kenny Beaney in the centre of midfield, he flourished, and scored his first goals for the Club in a 2-0 win away at Chatham Town in September 2011.
In April, Harry was invited for a trial by former Chelsea and West Ham United manager Avram Grant at Partizan Belgrade. Despite impressing, no deal was completed, and he came back to feature in Blues’ final game of the season; the play-off semi final defeat at Enfield Town.
Speaking earlier in the week, Agombar said of the trial: “It’s another great opportunity for me which I feel I can’t turn down.” Of his time with Grays, he added: “the Club will always be in my heart, and I appreciate everything that has been done for me. Hakan and Hasan have been great, as have the other staff and most importantly the supporters. I look forward to watching the Club in the future, and I want to wish them luck for the new season.”
Macclesfield Town were relegated from the Football League in April, after 13 consecutive seasons in the fourth tier of English Football. Ex-Lewes manager Steve King was appointed in May of this year as the club prepared for the Conference.
In total, Agombar made 64 appearances for the Club, scoring 10 goals.
Everyone at the Club would like to thank Harry for his efforts during his two spells, and wish him the very best of luck for the future.
