FC Halifax Town came back to draw 1-1 at home to Harrogate Town on New Year’s Day last season.

A sixth minute goal from George Thomson and a 90th minute equaliser from Jonathan Edwards meant the two Yorkshire sides shared the points. A poor first half from Halifax saw the home side trail but a good second half meant the spoils were shared.

It took only six minutes for Harrogate to take the lead as Mark Beck switched the play and found George Thomson. Thomson looked to cross the ball into the box but instead found the back of the net to make it 1-0.

As the game neared its conclusion, it was substitute Jonathan Edwards who found the net. A Ben Tomlinson corner was headed into the air by Josh Falkingham, after some head tennis, it fell to the feat of Edwards who tapped it home to give the Shaymen a point.

In the return fixture Town travelled to North Yorkshire on Boxing Day and returned home with three points with a 2-1 win against their promotion chasing hosts with goals from Nathan Clarke and Dayle Southwell for the Shaymen.

Defender Callum Howe put Harrogate ahead in the first half, but Clarke equalised in the second half from a Ben Tomlinson corner before Southwell struck on 88 minutes to seal the points.
