Kidderminster Harriers sign striker Jamille Matt

Kidderminster Harriers

Kidderminster Harriers have signed 21-year-old Sutton Coldfield Town striker Jamille Matt on non-contract terms.

Harriers boss Steve Burr has been watching Matt for some time and feels the striker has potential.

"He is a young lad who is a big strong unit and has genuine pace to burn," Burr told BBC Hereford & Worcester.

"He has his opportunity now and hopefully by our working with him we can improve him and he can push onto the next level."

Matt is a product of the Sutton Coldfield Town youth set-up and netted 15 times for the first team last season.

He has followed that up with six goals in 19 appearances in the current campaign.

Sutton have done a fantastic job with him to bring him on and hopefully we can continue his push, albeit at a higher level

The striker arrives at Aggborough in the best possible form after netting a hat-trick in the 7-2 thumping of Goole at the weekend.

Matt also impressed during a behind-closed-doors friendly match against Harriers in which he also found the back of the net.

Burr says the initial deal is on a non-contract basis and now it is up to the 21-year-old to make the most of his opportunity.

"For me that is the best way to do it - we can get the lad into this environment and work with him," he said.

"Sutton have done a fantastic job with him to bring him on and hopefully we can continue his push, albeit at a higher level.

"We have been watching him over a number of weeks - he has the experience of knowing how physical non-league football can be."
