KIDDERMINSTER Harriers have signed 21-year-old full-back Joel Taylor on a short-term deal, writes John Dolan.

The ex-Stoke City youngster won player of the year for the Potters under 21 side last season and made some appearances for the Premier League club in the Checkatrade Trophy.

He has also gained some experience with League One outfit Rochdale where he made his debut appearance against Bristol Rovers.

An attacking full-back with experience at a top-level club Taylor should prove to be an exciting addition to the Harriers side.

A Midlands lad, born in West Bromwich, Taylor has been training with Kidderminster for the last week and has signed a deal making him available for the game against FC United of Manchester tomorrow (3pm).
