The centre-back began his career at Bradford City and spent three seasons playing for Guiseley before joining Luton Town. He was released by Luton in July 2013 and subsequently joined Halifax.
Speaking of signing for Town, Ainge commented "I definitely want to achieve something with this team and I want to continue to improve myself. I am happy to be teaming up with Danny (Ellis) again, as I feel we have a really strong connection on the pitch. Of course, it will be difficult because the league is going to be strong again this year but I can’t wait for the challenge.”
“Every player wants to be successful and Harrogate Town is a club on the up. I’ve come here to win the league” .
Manager Simon Weaver commented “Simon is a great addition to our squad, and has proven quality at this level. I have always rated him as a player, and I'm confident he also has all the personal attributes I look for in a Harrogate Town player”.
