Dunston UTS sign Harvey Neary

Dunston UTS are delighted to announce the signing of young midfielder Harvey Neary from Whitley Bay.

The 21-year-old joins Jon McDonald’s side as the first signing of the summer transfer window, and comes with the ability to play in central midfield and at fullback.

Harvey received the supporters’ player of the season award at Northern League Division One side Whitley Bay last season, who finished 10th last season.

After beginning his career as part of South Shields academy, he spent a season with Boldon CA in Northern League Division Two, before spending the last two seasons at Hillheads.

 Harvey Neary said: “After speaking to Jon [McDonald] about the club’s plans for moving forward and the way he wants to play football, I felt that it was definitely the right place for me”.

“I would say I’m a player who works hard for the team and likes to play on the front foot”.

“The main goal is definitely to get promoted. With the quality in the squad, I think that goal is definitely achievable. On a personal note, I want to play as many games as I can. I’m stepping up a level from the Northern League so I want to show that I’m capable”.

Dunston manager, Jon McDonald, said: “I watched Harvey a number of times last season and he was very impressive”.

 “At 21-years-old, he’s another young player we feel has huge potential. He’s strong, carries the ball very well and is a great athlete”.

“We are delighted to add another exciting young talent to our already strong squad. He’s another player who fits the profile of what we want at the club”.
