Harleston Town defender Mark Shadrack planning to play again next season




Experienced Harleston Town defender Mark Shadrack has revealed he is keen to continue playing next season.

Shadrack, who started out as a youngster with Dereham Town before having spells with the likes of Diss Town, Mildenhall Town and Wroxham, featured on 24 occasions for Harleston during the now expunged 2019/20 campaign.

He will turn 34 this September, but providing that the Hadley & Ottaway Anglian Combination Premier Division side still require his services, he is willing to continue lacing up his boots every Saturday afternoon.

“It has been disappointing that the season has been wiped but it is understandable,” said Shadrack.

“I hope to keep playing. I am 34 later this year and have a young family, but as long as the body allows me to I want to keep playing.

“You are a lot longer out of the game than you are involved in it, so I if I am able to do it, I should keep going.

“As long as I am needed and able to help, I want to keep playing for Harleston.

“It is a great club. It is a great group of lads, I have a lot of time for the chairman and it is good playing for Nicky (Howell) and Gangles (Nathan Stone).”
