Harltepool United have announced that center back Scott Harrison has left the club to join Scottish Championship side Falkirk.
Harrison was under contract at the National League club for next season but is believed to have been made available for transfer by manager Matthew Bates.
The defender spent two spells on loan with Harltepool before joining the County Durham side on a permanent deal in January 2015. He has since gone on to feature over 120 times for the club.
The Sunderland academy graduate has put to paper on a two-year contract at the the Falkrik Stadium.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Falkirk manager Paul Hartley said, “Scott is a real physical, no nonsense defender who adds great steel to our backline.
“He has featured at a good level in England having played most of his professional matches in League Two.
“The signing of Scott probably completes my defensive acquisitions for the season ahead. I think this is an area that we are now looking really strong in.
“Our real focus now is on recruiting both midfielders and attackers and talks with a number of our targets are progressing well.
“We hope to potentially have further news on this tomorrow and certainly moving into next week ahead of our return to pre-season training.”
