Kidderminster Harriers boss: We’ve got options
HAVING seen Jamille Matt leave Kidderminster Harriers for a club-record fee, manager Steve Burr is ready to discover more talent in the lower divisions.
Harriers banked in the region of £300,000 when the striker joined League Two Fleetwood Town last week, after plucking him from Sutton Coldfield Town in November 2010.
Fellow strikers Anthony Malbon and Ryan Rowe, as well as winger Marvin Johnson, have also all made the step up from lower down the non-league pyramid during Burr’s tenure.
Although he has money to spend following the sale of Matt, the Kidderminster boss is not about to change a shopping policy that has served him well.
He said: “We’ve got a number of options we’re looking at but we’re in no rush to bring someone in. The team is playing well and I was delighted with the performance against Mansfield.
“We’ve identified a couple of players from the lower levels. Just because we’ve got money doesn’t mean we’re going to go out and spend it for the sake of it.
“Everyone knows we’re in the market for players and have some cash so prices go up. Chairman Mark Serrell and I both want to do what’s right for the club and be careful.”
Another option open to Harriers is using some of the Matt transfer cash to pay off a brewery loan, which stands in the region of £56,000.
