Chester manager Jim Harvey interested in Harriers job

Chester City boss Jimmy Harvey has confirmed his interest in the manager's job at Kidderminster Harriers following last week's departure of Mark Yates.

Hereford-based Harvey, who joined City in October following his August sacking by Forest Green, has admitted: "Any manager would be interested.

"They are doing extremely well and are a very talented bunch of players, just outside the play-offs.

"It's flattering to think they'd like me but at the moment I'm at Chester."

Harvey was at Aggborough on Boxing Day to see his young Chester team play hearteningly with great spirit only to go down 2-0 to Harriers.

But he has been working without a contract at financially-troubled Chester, following his arrival to replace the sacked Mick Wadsworth in October.

And there remains uncertainty over his future at the Deva, following the shock appointment on Saturday of former Halesowen and Kettering manager Morell Maison as Chester's new director of football.

But Harvey insists that he will not make any decisions until he has spoken to officials at Chester.

"I have not discussed it with Chester," he told BBC Hereford & Worcester, "so I will have to wait to have a chat with everybody, but all things in good time."
