Central defender Harry was handed a three-year professional deal in October 2016, following his impressive progression with the U’s youth team.

First joining United as a twelve-year old, he has also spent time in the Newmarket Town academy. A quick and intelligent young defender, Harry made his first-team debut in an EFL Trophy encounter with Scunthorpe during the 2017/18 season. He subsequently enjoyed a one-month loan spell with National League South side Bishops Stortford. After making several appearances for the U’s during the early fixtures of the 2017/18 campaign, Harry penned an extension to his contract keeping him at the Abbey Stadium until June 2021. He also built on his experience courtesy of temporary stints with Hampton & Richmond, East Thurrock and Southern League outfit Royston. Harry, a threat at set pieces, has continued to enhance his growing reputation, surpassing 50 games for the club by the end of last season.
