Byron Harrison Player Profile
Debut: Gillingham (A, 0-1), 01/01/2011
Signed from Carshalton Athletic in early 2011, Byron Harrison joined us having racked up a fair few goals during the first half of that season. Having scored 14 times before the turn of the year in the Isthmian League Premier Division, we swooped in to sign him.
It followed the departure of Chris Holroyd back to parent club Brighton and Hove Albion; Harrison’s goalscoring capabilities evident during his time with Ashford Town (Middlesex), with sources suggesting a return of 43 goals from 96 appearances.
The player started out his career at Havant & Waterlooville, and enjoyed stints at Worthing and Harrow Borough in his ascent to the Football League; an ascent that continued as he ended the 2010-1 season as Boro’s top scorer.
News of Harrison’s departure came a little out of the blue in January 2012, with AFC Wimbledon prising the striker away from Boro’ ranks for a five-figure sum. In doing so, the player became the Dons’ record signing and left the Lamex with a return of 10 goals in nearly 50 games.
That wasn’t the end of the tale as far as the striker’s career at Boro’ went, however. In February 2016, we were looking for goals at the wrong end of League Two. Harrison, therefore, was re-signed on a one-month loan deal.
