KIDDERMINSTER Harriers have been hailed as the “non-league Barcelona” by a rival manager.

Gainsborough Trinity boss Dave Frecklington made the comment following his side’s 3-0 loss at Aggborough on Saturday.

“Let’s not beat around it, what a side they are,” he said of Harriers. “We knew what they were all about but that was a different level in what we were up against.

“They are like a non-league Barcelona with the way they play. It doesn’t matter how you set up, we had to change formation three times to try to tackle it.

“In every position they are really strong and my team can use it as a learning exercise as that is the level if you want to get promoted.”
