The winger has made 13 appearances for Harrogate, finding the net in the 3-1 victory at Crawley in early February.

Loan player Josh March was ruled out for the remainder of the season after sustaining a knee injury in the 3-0 victory over Colchester United on March 9.

The striker returned to parent club Forest Green following the injury after scoring five times in an encouraging ten-match spell at Harrogate.
