Kidderminster Harriers avert immediate CVA danger

Former chairman Barry Norgrove put money in to pay the club's wages

Kidderminster Harriers fans, including two of their former directors, have donated money to the stricken club to fight off the threat of administration.

Ex-chairman Barry Norgrove and fellow former director Neil Savery chipped in to clear the club's current wage bill.

And a further £14,000 has been raised by the Kidderminster Harriers Independent Supporters Trust.

Harriers, who owed £155,000, have now staved off the immediate threat of a Company Voluntary Agreement.

Supporters Trust spokesman Karl Davies is now looking for local football fans to respond by turning up for this Saturday's Blue Square Bet home game against Altrincham (12 February, 1500 GMT).

"We need 6,000 people in there on Saturday," Davies told BBC Hereford & Worcester. "Let's give the club the support they really need.

Three points on Saturday in front of a full house would be great

KHIST spokesman Karl Davies

"It's celebration time almost, to thank everybody.

"But the work has only just started. There is a lot to be done over the coming weeks and months.

"It's great news for the club and the players, if they can carry on the good work.

"Three points on Saturday in front of a full house would be great."

Despite all their off-field problems, and being hit by a five-point deduction by the Football Conference earlier this month for not handing their accounts in on time, Harriers are flying on the field.

Steve Burr's men have lost just once this year and have won their last four games at Aggborough to climb to sixth in the table.
