Four generations of Harrogate Town fans from the same family are set to attend the Envirovent Stadium tomorrow night.

Town take on Carlisle United at Wetherby Road in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

In attendance will be the Deighton family, who have collectively followed Harrogate for around 40 years.

But Tuesday night’s match will be special for the Deighton’s as seven-year-old Isaac attends his first Town game.

He will be joined by his dad Tom, 27, grandad Andy, 52 and great-grandad Peter, 76. They will all sit in the Wetherby Road stand.

Phil Deighton, a season ticket holder at Town who will also be at the game, said it was important to the family to support their local team.

Mr Deighton, who is Andy’s brother, said:

“The game on Tuesday will be Issac’s first game and he is really excited.

“As a family we have been watching Harrogate Town for nearly 40 years and it’s great that Isaac will be following in the family traditions.

“Supporting our local team is very important to us.”

Town will be hoping to make it through to the second round of the Carabao Cup against League One Carlisle.

The club go into tomorrow night’s game off the back of a 1-0 in a Yorkshire Derby against Doncaster last Saturday.

Town took four points from Carlisle last season with a 3-3 draw at the Envirovent Stadium and a 1-0 win away at Brunton Park.

Carlisle were promoted at the end of last season after defeating Stockport County on penalties in the League Two play-off final at Wembley.
