Mick O’Connell says Harrogate Railway initially focus is on claiming a play-offs spot.

“We’ll be looking to get into the play-offs,” O’Connell told Non League Yorkshire.

“Our first aim this year is to get 40 points on the board.

“After that we’ll go for 80 points and then after that we’ll see where we are.

“The minimum is the play-offs.

“I think if we can start on the front-foot and get some momentum, that momentum carries you to Christmas and then you can kick on.”
