Kidderminster Harriers In Focus 2012-13

The return of inspirational ex-skipper Keith Briggs from Fleetwood, Danny Pilkington (York City) and Ricky Shakes (Ebbsfleet United) will give the Harriers some midfield this term. But Steve Burr  has also rebuilt the defence signing  Ryan Austin (Burton Albion)  Exodus Geohaghon in from (Darlington  /  Mansfield Town) and Cheyenne Dunkley (Hednesford).  Keeper Nathan Vaughan will also give Danny Lewis a run for the number 1 spot too.

Kidderminsterbadge.pngSummer sound-bites.

Latest gossip – Burr unhappy with 1-0 County cup defeat to Stourbridge. Keeper Nathan Vaughan signs. Ken Rae joins the board. Keeper Dean Lyness signs for Burton Albion on a free transfer. Former captain & midfield general Keith Briggs has returned to Aggborough from Fleetwood. Jamie Matt on trial at Sheff Utd. Keeper Danny Lewis returns to training after 10 months out. Lee Hendrie has been released.


Daniel Bradley joins Alfreton. Central defenders Exodus Geohaghon and Ryan Austin join from Darlo and Burton respectively. Breedon and Marshall join Tamworth. Danny Pilkington joins from York and Ricky Shakes joins from Ebbsfleet. Steve Guinan signs 1 year extension. Steve Burr hopes to have striker Jamille Matt’s bid for British citizenship sorted in time for him to report for pre-season training.


Burr is going to be looking for some defenders as Tom Marshall is expected to follow fellow defender Luke Jones and striker Nick Wright (both to Mansfield) out of the club after turning down a new deal. With 16 signed up the management team had felt they are almost ready to go. Telford want Briscoe. Striker Nicky Wright stalling on new deal as he looks at interest from other BSP sides. James Vincent and Marvin Johnson played for England C in their 4-0 loss to a very strong Russian under-21s side in Moscow. Groundshare proposal with Worcester City on the cards.
