KEEP IT UP! Harrogate Town’s Liam Hardy

Have your say

The search for the area’s top keepy uppy star continues as Harrogate Town’s Liam Hardy tackles the tennis ball challenge.

Hardy has returned to full fitness at Town this season after a successful loan spell at rivals Harrogate Railway last year.

The striker is used to banging the goals in but how will he do when faced with a ball more suited to being hit with a racquet.

Hardy’s teammate Adam Bolder is still the man to beat at the top of the leaderboard with his score of 32.

Can the self confessed Joey Barton look-a-like leap above?


32 - Adam Bolder, Harrogate Town

29 - Colin Hunter, Harrogate Railway

27 - Craig Nelthorpe*, Harrogate Town

19 - Danny Matthews, Harrogate RUFC
