The 22-year-old arrived at the Crucial Environmental Stadium prior to the 2021-22 season after relocating from the North of England and established himself as a firm favourite with the supporters.
He was integral in the team that won the Isthmian League Premier Division in his first season, keeping 16 clean sheets on the way to the title.
His performances during the club’s first season in National League South also drew much praise and attention, nothing more so than when he received a call up to the England C squad in March of this year, making an appearance as a substitute in the 1-0 win over Wales.
A stand out moment in his Rebels career came in the Sussex Senior Challenge Cup semi final, saving three penalties in the shoot out victory over Hastings United. Male had also played 90 minutes in the previous evening’s league win over Cheshunt.
It would be a disappointing end to the campaign for the stopper though as injury would rule him out of the play-off semi-final defeat to Oxford City and the Sussex Senior Challenge Cup final triumph over Bognor Regis Town at the American Express Community Stadium.
His time at the club would end on a high note however, picking up the Players’ Player of the Year award.
His two year spell at the club ends having made 105 appearances in Red. We would like to place on record our thanks to Harrison for his contribution to the club and wish him well for the future.
