Harrison "Harry" Crawford (born 10 December 1991) is a footballer who plays for Hampton & Richmond Borough.

Club career[edit]

Crawford made his debut on 23 March 2010 for Southend United in their 3–0 home win over Walsall in League One, replacing Scott Spencer in the 82nd minute as a substitute. He got his first assist on 24 April 2010, away to Oldham Athletic when he crossed the ball to Jean-Yves Mvoto who scored with a header.[2] He was given his first start on 1 May against Stockport County where he netted his first goal in professional football, the equaliser in the 75th minute.[3]

Dover Athletic signed Crawford on an initial one-month loan on 26 August.[4] Manager, Martin Hayes said; "Harry has good pedigree. Southend have a good track record of producing good young players and this lad is highly thought of at Roots Hall."[4]

On 18 March 2011, Crawford scored his second and third goals for Southend in a 4–0 victory in a League Two match against Hereford United.

On 18 May 2012, Crawford was one of eleven players to be released at the end of their contract.[5]

On 9 August 2012, Crawford signed for Dartford in the Conference National. He immediately made a good impression on the Darts fans, scoring on his debut against Tamworth. He went on to score 12 goals in his half-season spell at the club, including a hat trick against Alfreton Town and two against local rivals Ebbsfleet United on Boxing Day 2012.

On 24 January 2013, Crawford signed a three-year contract with Barnet.[6] During his second appearance, on 1 February 2013, he scored his first goal for the club, against Bristol Rovers after coming on as a substitute for Ricky Holmes. His goal came on 89 minutes, making the score 1–1, however Barnet went on to lose after conceding in the second minute of added time.[7] Crawford re-joined Dartford on loan on 15 February 2013.[8] Crawford was released by the Bees at the end of the 2013–14 season. He scored three goals in 40 appearances for the Bees.[9]

Crawford re-joined Dartford for a third spell on 29 July 2014.[10] In May 2015, Crawford was released by the club following relegation to the National League South.[11]

In 2015, Crawford played for Boreham Wood and St Albans City before joining Dover Athletic on 27 January 2016.[12]

Crawford joined Welling United for the 2016-17 season. He then joined Hampton & Richmond Borough for 2017-18. Crawford suffered an injury during the season and returned to football in February 2019 when he joined Bedfont Sports, scoring twice on his debut.[13]

International career[edit]

Despite being born in Watford, he qualifies for the Republic of Ireland through his grandmother who hailed from Dublin, and also through his grandfather.[14] In May 2010, he received his first international call-up to the under-19 squad for the 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Championship elite qualification matches against England, Ukraine and Bosnia and Herzegovina in Kiev, Ukraine.[15] He made his debut in the 1–0 defeat to England, but was substituted at half-time.[16] He was then an unused substitute for the next match, a 1–0 win over Ukraine.[17] He came on as a substitute for Daniel Kearns in the final group game against Bosnia and Herzegovina, a 1–0 victory as Ireland were eliminated from the competition.[18]
