Harrogate Town celebrate historic promotion with open-top bus tour

Harrogate Town footballers have celebrated their historic promotion to the Football League with an open-top bus parade - at one point being upstaged by a bride who halted the tour for pictures.

Kirsty Mallaby-Chapman from Harrogate had just tied the knot with hubby Christopher at the Yorkshire Hotel. 

Players and staff were on the bus for a 35 minute tour of the spa town starting and finishing at the club's CNG stadium.

Harrogate secured promotion last weekend at Wembley stadium with a 3-1 victory over Notts County in the playoff finals.The 106-year-old club has never been in the football league before.

The club took the decision not to stop the bus at any point in order to avoid crowds gathering.
