Harriers chairman in call for more Aggborough support

CHAIRMAN Mark Serrell has called on more Kidderminster Harriers fans to get behind the team’s push for the play-offs.

Having lost their first five games, Harriers now find themselves only four points shy of the Blue Square Bet Premier top five.

They defeated promotion hopefuls Wrexham 2-0 at Aggborough last Saturday and today take on league leaders Newport County (3pm). Serrell was pleased to see a crowd of 2,378 — swelled by by 700 from the North Wales visitors — last weekend but reckons Steve Burr’s side deserve even better.

The Harriers chief said: “I must thank every Kidderminster fan who attended who helped make the support for the team so special — it really was a great atmosphere, especially in the second half.

“I have to put my hand on my heart, however, and admit I was disappointed not to see more home supporters at the match — there were around 1,600 of our own fans.

“I fully acknowledge that this would stack up as a more than a reasonable total attendance for some clubs in this division but I would hope that fans agree that the recent displays out on the pitch deserve even more.

“The performance we put in against Wrexham was the best I have seen in a very long time and showings against the likes of Telford and Alfreton have been brilliant, too.

“Aggborough is a fantastic place to watch football when the atmosphere is like it was last weekend and we’d all love more of the same.”
