Kidderminster Harriers have received a triple blow ahead of the 2022/23 National League North season as captain Sam Austin, centre-half Gabriel Bajrami and Omari Sterling have opted to leave the club.

Captain Austin has played 220 times for Harriers but a release clause in his contract was triggered by National League side Notts County.

Bajrami, another first team regular, follows Austin to Meadow Lane after his contract ended at the conclusion of the 2021/22 campaign.

In other news of players from last season, Omari Sterling has signed with a new club after two seasons with Harriers. That club is yet to be officially confirmed.

Jaiden White will also not be returning to Harriers with Penn confirming the player has been allowed to leave Aggborough to continue his career.

The boss added: "All of these lads were brilliant for me and contributed a lot to the club – we all wish them well for the future.

"Now we have to focus on the squad we’re putting together for the new season, and we can’t wait to get started."
