Hughes delighted to land "exciting talent" Rowe

Scarborough Athletic joint managers Bryan Hughes and Paul Foot have made their first new signing of the summer, with winger Dominic Rowe joining from Conference North side Harrogate Town.

The 22-year-old started his career at Bradford City, making his senior debut as a late substitute for the Bantams against Southend United back in 2011.

During the 2011/12 season Rowe also spent time on loan at Barrow AFC in the Conference Premier, where he scored one goal in 10 appearances.

The speedy winger left Bradford in 2012, joining Conference North side Harrogate Town in August 2013. Rowe went on to score 10 goals in 46 league appearances during his two seasons at the CNG Stadium before he was released at the end of the current campaign.

Bryan Hughes is delighted to land Rowe and make him the first new addition to the Boro squad. 

He said: "Dominic has come through the ranks at Bradford City, before moving on to play for Harrogate Town in Conference North over the last couple of seasons."

"He is an exciting talent that will add some much needed pace to our setup. There was a lot of competition for Dominic's signature, so it is fantastic that he has decided to join us at Scarborough Athletic."

Rowe joins a growing number of players who have decided to drop from higher leagues to join Boro, something that Hughes believes will help the club in the forthcoming season.

"Dominic has the experience of playing in the Conference North with Harrogate Town, as does Alex Metcalfe, with other players like Ben Middleton and Daniel Clayton also deciding to drop down the leagues to join us. Dominic is the sort of high-calibre signing that shows our ambition ahead of the new season to improve and progress."
