  • 10th August – Harrogate Town v Rochdale – Carabao Cup Round One
  • 14th August – Crawley Town v Harrogate Town
  • 17th August – Leyton Orient v Harrogate Town

Following discussions with the Club, the League has agreed to Harrogate’s request to rearrange the League fixtures with all parties now to mutually find alternative dates which will confirmed in due course.

In respect of rescheduling the Carabao Cup game, the League will consider any proposal put forward by the Club as under the rules, if a fixture is not able to be re-arranged ahead of the following round, then a Club would have to forfeit the tie.
