Chesterfield, Halifax or Harrogate: Who will have the more success this season?

Chesterfield and Harrogate both have reasonable chances of a successful season, in the hopes of breaking into the Football League come May.

Unfortunately for Halifax Town, their odds of 40/1 reflect a tough campaign, who may well be spending the coming months fighting against relegation, rather than battling it out at the top.

John Sheridan and Glynn Snodin, who are currently in charge at Chesterfield, have decided to stick with their roles for the 2019/20 season, despite early unrest that at least one of them was going to move on this summer.

Now Chesterfield has the staff in place, both Sheridan and Snodin are on the hunt for two strikers, to help fire them up the football ladder.

Harrogate Town, on the other hand, have not hung around since the end of last season, as they look to build on their performances and achieve promotion in 2020.

They have made a number of new signings and their latest appears to be a real coup.

Sam Jones, a talented 27-year-old striker, has joined Harrogate on a permanent deal from Shrewsbury Town. Although Jones never managed to get his opportunity during his time at the League One side, Jones bagged double digits for Gateshead and Grimsby Town, prior to his big move.

Jones is Harrogate’s seventh summer signing, and they are still keen to add new additions before the transfer window slams shut.

A look at the football betting suggests Chesterfield have the best chances out of the three Yorkshire National League sides to achieve promotion, as bet365 have them priced up at 9/1 to win the title. Harrogate are hot on their tails at 12/1, indicating they have an outside chance if their new signings can make a long-lasting impact over the course of the season.

Harrogate are not the only side to be putting their hands in their pockets, as fellow Yorkshire side, Halifax, have added Jamie Allen from Dover to their ranks for an undisclosed fee.

His goalscoring record isn’t much to shout about, scoring six goals in 41 appearances, but Halifax clearly believe he can fulfil his potential in Yorkshire next season.Halifax have also signed Tobi Sho-Silva from Dover, who has recently had loan spells with Chelmsford City and Margate.

The six-foot striker will add a physical presence to the side and is one of three signings for the Shaymen, after Halifax also secured the services of Jack Earing, having been released from Bolton Wanderers.

Early indications show all three Yorkshire sides have been keen to add new additions to their squads ahead of the new campaign.

Chesterfield started their previous campaign strong before tailing off, but to have recruited well this season and they will be eager to have a similar start this time around.

All three clubs will be hoping to get off to the best possible start to the season, but expect to see plenty more transfers, both in and out, at all three Yorkshire clubs before then.
