PETER JAMESON has signed for Harrogate Town following his departure from York City.

Jameson announced over the weekend that he had not accepted York's new deal, having instead taken up an opportunity with a Football League club.

Harrogate, of Sky Bet League Two, have confirmed that they are Jameson's new club amid social media speculation linking the 29-year-old with Town as well as Hartlepool United.

Jameson departs York having won Clubman of the Year award last season in the club's promotion success through the Vanarama National League North play-offs.

“We’ve been tracking Pete for some time at York and he’s a really good all round keeper and looks the part," said Harrogate manager Simon Weaver.

"His shot stopping has been superb, he’s a good size, commands his box, kicks well and so all round brings a lot to the table.

"He’s played a major role in York’s success this season, with both him and the club doing superb to earn promotion.

“We’re delighted to bring him to Harrogate and we know we’ve signed a really good lad as well.

"We do some digging on characters and he’s spot on. As soon as we met him, we thought he had a really good way about him and I’m sure he’ll do well for us and enjoy his time here.

“We want proper competition for places in every position and we’re looking forward to seeing the respect and competition between all players.

"I’m sure will see that from day one, whether that’s goalkeepers or any other position. It’s about getting three points and as many as possible over the course of the season.

"Hopefully competition will drive up the levels of performance.”
