KIDDERMINSTER Harriers were on the other end of a clinical performance from League Two side Walsall, as the Saddlers hit five at Aggborough.

It had been an encouraging start for the hosts, who were well supported by over 1,000 on the day.

For much of the first half there was very little to choose between the two sides.

A visiting trialist curled an effort off target with the first chance of the day before Omari Sterling, on 32 minutes, had the hosts’ first opening with a free-kick he drove over the bar.

The Saddlers the turned on the style and quickly they took the game away from Harriers.

Emmanuel Osadebe first controlled the ball beautifully before finishing from close range and then curled a delightful second past Luke Simpson from 20 yards to double their lead.

Two became three for Walsall just a couple of minutes after the restart as Trialist A played in Connor Wilkinson who finished smartly.

The fourth, on 57 minutes, was another clinical finish from Kieran Phillips as he turned on a loose ball before firing it home.

Harriers rallied a little with the introduction of Amari Morgan-Smith and Jaiden White as they combined for the latter to fire wide.

Walsall added a fifth when Brendan Tiernan slotted home from a dangerous cross.

Next up for Kidderminster at Aggborough is the visit of a Manchester United XI on August 6th. Tickets must be purchased online - get them here.
