KIDDERMINSTER Harriers new boss Neil MacFarlane made his first big move after signing hotshot striker Ashley Chambers.

The 28-year-old, who has committed to two years at Aggborough, was one of non-league's most sought after players following his departure from Nuneaton earlier in the summer.

The Leicester-born hitman arrived at the Reds on the back of a successful season which saw him hit the net on 25 occasions and he is hoping continue his good form.

Chambers told Official Harriers TV: "I can't wait to get going, I'm looking forward to it. The football that's played here is brilliant, it's a joy to watch.

"Kidderminster play quick, attacking football, there's going to be many more chances for me to score so I will be disappointed if I don't score a lot of goals."

After spending seven years with Leicester City, Chambers played for Grimsby and York City where he netted in the Conference play-off final at Wembley in 2012 against Luton Town to help the Minstermen back into the Football League.

He returned to Grimsby before moving to Dagenham & Redbridge and then onto Nuneaton for loan spell in 2017 which was made permanent last summer.

Despite interest from elsewhere Chambers was pleased to get a deal done quickly after being impressed by the Kidderminster club.

He said: "Knowing how ambitious the club are and the infrastructure that's here in place it ticks all the boxes.

"I'd like to think that after last season, scoring so many goals, I can carry that on - I never get tired of scoring goals."

The club has also announced changes to the backroom staff, former Shrewsbury Town player Elliot Turner has been recruited as strength and conditioning coach.

He has previously coached at Shrewsbury, Worcester City, premiership rugby club Worcester Warriors and Nuneaton Town.

Meanwhile, head of coaching, Matt Gardiner, has departed to join Queen’s Park Rangers as a member of their coaching team, while coach Kevin Phillips is set to move on to an unnamed team in EFL League Two.

Harriers chairman, Colin Gordon, said: “These are two big losses for us but I’m absolutely delighted for both Gards and Kev who have worked tremendously hard for us over the last couple of years, and Kev even prior to that.

“They leave with our blessing to take up two fantastic jobs, and it is once again proof of the model that we work with here – we’ve been able to help develop some fantastic coaches and staff who’ve this summer made moves into the Football League while also progressing ourselves as a club.

“We wish them all the very best for the future.”
