Hard-up Kidderminster Harriers put up for sale

Kidderminster Harriers have been put up for sale by chairman Barry Norgrove.

The mid-table Blue Square Bet Premier club have struggled to attract crowds to Aggborough since being relegated from the Football League in 2005.

And Norgrove has offered to step down as the club's chairman in a bid to help attract new investors.

"I feel I am holding the club back. We need fresh investment to get to the higher end of the table and I do not have the finances to do that," he said.

"I have been here for 10 years and have done all I possibly can, and we have had some success along the way.

"But I just feel now that, with my own business struggling, and with the tragic loss of one of our directors earlier this year in Gordon Howard, I am not in a position to take Kidderminster Harriers forward in the way I would like.

"There are people out there looking for football clubs - I know that for a fact.

"I have made this decision and it is final - I really do hope that we can find the right person or people to help push us on."
