Jack Muldoon – “I have loved every minute of being here.”

Harrogate Town forward Jack Muldoon insists he has “loved every minute” of his time with the club since signing for them in the summer of 2018.

The 32-year-old signed for the Sulphurites from AFC Fylde and has netted 55 goals in total – including 11 so far in this campaign.

Muldoon has thoroughly enjoyed his time at the club up to this point and claims everything has gone according to plan for the team since he joined up with them.

He said: “It is my fourth season here now and I have loved every minute of it. It has brilliant.

“I came here when the club just got promoted to the National League and the main belief that season was to get into the play-offs and we did that.

“Our aim was to get promoted in the second season which we also did so everything went according to plan.

“Once we made it to League Two, our aim was to maintain our football league status in our first season and we did.

“This year, we are trying to kick on again and I am really enjoying it.

“My highlight here has been promotion to the Football League and winning the FA Trophy was the cherry on top.”

Muldoon also reflected on the Sulphurites’ most recent game in Sky Bet League Two – which was a 1-1 draw at home to play-off chasing Port Vale.

The forward played 73 minutes of the contest and provided the assist for his side’s goal.

He added: “We started quite well, put them on the back-foot and obviously, we got our goal which came at a good time.

“In the second-half, we were on the back-foot and had to see it out to earn a point.

“It was a good point in the end. They are a strong team and have a big set of lads but we did well at certain stages of the game.”

The experienced Scunthorpe-born striker then touched on what he is hoping the team can achieve come the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

The North Yorkshire outfit still have over a dozen games to play and Muldoon believes getting into the play-off places is not out of the question.

Harrogate currently sit in 14th position and 10 points adrift of 7th place.

He continued: “Obviously, we have 13 games left so there are 39 points up for grabs.

“We would like to be looking at play-offs but you have to realistic as well but of course, I am hoping we can push for play-offs in the latter part of the season.”

Muldoon then highly praised the Harrogate supporters for how much they have gotten behind the team throughout this season.

This campaign has been the first one that the club’s fans have got to witness their team in the Football League due to them being unable to attend last season because of the restrictions caused by the pandemic.

He stated: “They (the fans) have been brilliant.

“We travelled to Bradford (City) last Tuesday and took 700 fans which was unreal.

“Credit to Harrogate because it is not the biggest town in the country but they come in their numbers and give us everything when they are here.”
