Men's Third XI
The 3rd team is made up of seasoned players and talented youngsters who are making their way up through the club. The theory is that experience is passed down to help develop the juniors and teach them a trick or two. The reality is occasionally a little different.
Many players in the current 1st and 2nd team squads have previously played for the 3rd team, demonstrating Harrogate's policy of promoting the youth, while first XI players of yesteryear are putting something back into the Club by showcasing their skills in the 3rd team.
The side will play the 2013/14 season in Yorkshire Division Four North, competing in the same league as the 4th team.
