Chelmsford City is delighted to announce that Callum Harrison has agreed terms for the 2021-22 season.
Callum joined the Clarets in May 2020 after an impressive season for AFC Sudbury in the Isthmian North during the 2019-20 campaign and showcased his talents to Clarets fans in his debut season at the Club.
After a very good pre-season, during which he scored against Enfield Town, the combative midfielder made his debut for the Club against Dartford in the opening game of the Vanarama National League South season.
He went on to make 17 appearances for the Club over the 2020-21 season and was a solid presence in midfield, where he impacted many games with his tackling and passing range.
Callum came through the academy at Colchester United and he joins Louis Dunne, Cameron James and Callum Jones as current Clarets players who have all come through the ranks at the U’s.
Manager Robbie Simpson commented: “Callum obviously jumped up from Sudbury to our level and did well; he had a good season.
“He certainly did enough during his first year at this level to warrant another crack at it.
“He’s combative, his set-piece delivery is great, he’s full of energy, he always wants the ball. Even when he’s having a bad game, he still wants the ball. He’s a really infectious character.
“I’ve spoken to him, and I’d like him to add more goals to his game than he showed last season.
“I’d also like him to get in the box more because when he does get in there, he shows in training that his finishing is second to none; he’s a great finisher with both feet.
“I just want him to get into more goalscoring opportunities in the upcoming season, hopefully, he can be that goalscoring midfielder for us and I’m excited to have him back.”
Speaking to ClaretsTV, Harrison said: “I’m really excited. I think last season was a little bit of a tough one, so to stay on for another season is definitely the right thing for me to do.
“I’m really looking forward to next season.”
A full interview with Callum will be available on Clarets TV and the midfielder has England in the First Team’s Euro 2020 sweepstake.
