Whild setting his sights on new defenders for Harriers

First published in Sport

GARY Whild may be set to do more transfer business in the lower echelons of the non-league football pyramid as he seeks to bolster his defence.

This week has seen left-back Mickey Demetriou join League Two side Shrewsbury Town after rejecting a new deal at Aggborough.

Right-back Lee Vaughan will also be plying his trade in the Football League next term following his switch to Cheltenham Town.

Although Whild has the likes of Chey Dunkley, Josh Gowling and Jamie Grimes at his disposal at centre-half, he is short of options in the full-back positions.

Tyrone Williams, who came through the club’s academy, is an option for the Harriers boss but Whild may look to unearth another gem from lower down the non-league pyramid.

That is an area that has proved fruitful for the Aggborough outfit in recent years, with Dunkley’s capture from Skrill North side Hednesford a prime example.

Whild said: “As a club we do look at players from lower down and give them a chance and it may be something we do now."
