DEFENDER Fraser Horsfall plays his first game for Kidderminster Harriers tomorrow since permanently swapping the Premier League for National League North.

Horsfall turned his loan from Huddersfield Town into a free-transfer move until the end of next season ahead of the derby return with AFC Telford United at Aggborough (3pm).

The promising centre-half, 21, interested league rivals during his 22 Harriers games with one goal and Huddersfield have insisted on a sell-on clause in the deal.

Horsfall, who had been involved with the under 23s at the Terriers, said: “It was a big decision for me but I have been enjoying my time here.

“I feel like I am playing well and helping the team. If I am going to progress then this is the best club for me to be at.

“I like the manager, backroom staff and everyone involved. There are a lot of good, young players in the squad and we see that day in day out in training.

“The quality is there. We’re young and hungry.”

Seventh-placed play-off chasers Harriers drew 0-0 at Telford, who are 15th, on Boxing Day on a tricky surface to extend their unbeaten league run to 11 games.

They must check on the fitness of forward Joe Ironside and midfielder Declan Weeks.

Ironside was taken off at half-time at Telford with an ankle problem while Weeks injured his knee in the 3-0 win over Nuneaton Town on December 23.

Harriers defender Tyrone Williams should return after taking a knock against Nuneaton.

The versatile Kennedy Digie has joined Nuneaton on a month’s loan and academy midfield product Ben Clarke has left the club after failing to make a competitive first-team appearance.

On the Telford match, Harriers’ wide player Sam Austin said: “Playing them again after just a few days is great.

“You know what to expect more than you would if you were playing them further along in the season with different signings.

“It will be good to get back to Aggborough and hopefully we can get the win.”
