Interplan have recently agreed to sponsor Niall Harrison the goalkeeper of Crook Town AFC, who currently play in the second division of the EBAC Northern League. Whilst Sky Sports continue to pump an incredible amount of money into the Premier and Football Leagues, the clubs much further down the pyramid system struggle financially, although they play an extremely important part in local communities.
Niall, played for Sunderland’s Academy teams from the age of 7 until being released when he was 15. More recently has been involved with Blyth Spartans who enjoyed a successful FA Cup run in the 2014 – 2015 season, winning against Hartlepool in the second round before losing to Championship side Birmingham City in the third round. The 2015 – 2016 saw Niall play an important role with his new club, culminating in May 2016 when Morpeth AFC triumphed at Wembley in the The FA Vase against bookmakers favourites Hereford Town AFC.
