KIDDERMINSTER Harriers' managerial merry-go-round continues to turn with interim boss Jimmy Shan departing on the back of links to the Solihull Moors job.

Shan was appointed in December to take over from caretaker manager Russ Penn who replaced John Pemberton after he left Aggborough in November.

Penn has now been reinstated as first team manager for the rest of the National League North season.

Interim Harriers CEO Neil Male said: “Jimmy has moved on to pursue a football career opportunity at a higher level.

"I would like to personally thank him on behalf of the club for his time with his input and assistance over the last three months.”

Shan said: “I want to make a special reference thanking the fans, players and staff during my time at the club.

"I am convinced under the new ownership and direction the club is heading in a positive and progressive manner to bring back the success the fans deserve.”

Penn's first game in charge will be tonight at Farsley Celtic.

It is believed former West Bromwich Albion caretaker boss Shan, who moved Harriers up to 15th in the table, is going to Solihull who are currently looking for a new manager.
