Brought in from Carshalton Athletic in early 2011, Byron Harrison arrived after banging in 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, it was our cue to swoop in and make him a Boro’ boy. It followed the departure of Chris Holroyd back to parent club Brighton & Hove Albion; Harrison’s scoring abilities evident during time at Ashford Town (Middlesex) too, with sources suggesting a return of 43 goals from 96 appearances.
He started his career at Havant & Waterlooville; enjoying stints at Worthing and Harrow Borough in his rise to the Football League; a rise that continued as he ended the 2010-1 season as our top scorer.
Byron Harrison: After Boro’
News of Harrison’s departure came a little out of the blue in early 2012; AFC Wimbledon prising the striker away 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. Not that it was 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.
