KIDDERMINSTER Harriers have signed two loan players including Stoke City midfielder Ollie Shenton.

Shenton, 21, who has previously turned out for Wrexham in the National League and played once in the Premier League for Stoke in 2015 against Manchester City, is to stay with Harriers until January.

Centre-half Jamie Sharman, 18, arrives from National League side Chesterfield, where he was academy player of the season last term, for an initial one-month period.

Harriers are missing Declan Weeks through a groin strain while fellow midfielder Milan Butterfield and centre-half Rhys Williams will be on international duty for a spell next month with Bermuda and England under 19s respectively.

The loan players come into the squad for Saturday's National League North home game with Alfreton Town (3pm).
