FORMER Birmingham City and Walsall midfielder Martin O'Connor today joined Kidderminster Harriers as player-coach.

The experienced campaigner, 37, has penned a 12-month deal following his release from Shrewsbury Town where he secured promotion from the Nationwide Conference via the play-offs last year.

O'Connor, who also played for Bromsgrove Rovers, will work alongside assistant Gary Barnett, while Watkiss is also in talks with Exeter City winger Gareth Sheldon, 25.
