Thomson hit double figures for goals and assists in his first season at Town, penning a new deal at the end of a productive first campaign.

The former FC United man then helped Simon Weaver’s side achieve a record high finish in Town’s first season at National League level and has played an integral part in ensuring the club are in with a chance of promotion to the Football League at the business end of the current 2019/20 season.

Harrogate’s ‘star man playing on the right’ has had a direct contribution to over 50 goals, winning four separate goal of the month awards in the process.

With competition for places this season at an all time high, Thomson has found form at a crucial stage, scoring a brace and setting up the other in our recent clash with promotion rivals Yeovil.

“George is on fire at the minute and we are delighted to be able to sign him on a new deal, he’s been a big part of our success over the last few years.” Added Simon Weaver.

“He’s a great character and everyone rates him, you see when he scores everyone runs towards him and it is a sign of his popularity.

“We’re delighted with that as well as with all the players we have handed new contracts to recently, they are big players and will continue to be part of the collective effort, which is our main strength.”
