Alex Harris

Date of Birth:
August 31, 1994
Previous Clubs: Hibernian, Dundee (loan), Queen of the South (loan), Falkirk, York City, Edinburgh City

In the summer of 2021, Alex Harris signed for the ‘Gers on a two-year deal, with the option of a third. Harris made his first-team debut for Hibs in 2012 and played 60 times for the Edinburgh club in five seasons, with 26 of those appearances in the Scottish Premier League.

During his time at Hibs, Harris also enjoyed a loan spell at Dundee – then in Scottish Premier League – in the 2014/15 season, playing 16 times. In the following season, he was loaned out to Scottish Championship outfit Queen of the South, where he played 27 times in all competitions.

Upon the expiry of his contract with Hibs in the summer of 2017, Harris joined Falkirk for a season, playing 29 times in all competitions. He then moved south of the border for the 2018/19 season, playing 28 times in all competitions for National League North side York City. In June 2019, Harris signed for Edinburgh City and, in two seasons with the Scottish League Two side, has played 37 times, scoring six goals.

Alex impressed in his first season at Shielfield Park, though fans might argue his most impressive performances came after Stuart Malcolm moved the midfield dynamo into the centre of the park to unlock his passing abilities.

Player Sponsor

Alex is sponsored by long-time supporter Jack Mathieson, who is also part of the group of supporters sponsoring Scott-Taylor Mackenzie.

Upon sponsoring Alex, Jack said: “I’ve been a regular at Shielfield since the mid 70s. I was a newspaper journalist for 26 years, most of them with the Daily Record, and I am currently the Media Officer at Edinburgh Napier University.

“Last season and this I have been part of a consortium sponsoring a player. This season, I have decided to extend my commitment and also take on another player as an individual backer because I now see a renewed enthusiasm about the club.

“The playing squad looks strong, enormous effort is being put in by the Board and volunteers working behind the scenes, and I believe if we all pull together we can get the club back to where it belongs.”

The club would like to thank Jack for his fantastic support.
