Oxford sign Harriers' Creighton

Mark Creighton
Creighton only missed three Blue Square Premier games this season

Blue Square Premier side Oxford United have signed Kidderminster centre-back Mark Creighton on a three-year deal.

The 27-year-old defender was one of the longest-serving players at Aggborough, and was their captain.

Creighton told BBC Oxford: "I need a change in my career and there's no better place than Oxford if you have ambition to get out of this league."

He was not one of the players released by Harriers and it is understood a small transfer fee is involved.

Creighton links up with former Harriers team-mate James Constable at Oxford.

"We're close mates and have stayed in touch since we played together," said Creighton.

"James has been pestering me to come and sign and it does help when you have got good friends at the club."

The former Redditch United defender, who joined Harriers in 2006, restated his belief that his old club have done the right thing in extending Mark Yates' stay as manager.

He said: "I leave on good terms at Kidderminster. I owe the club a massive thank you. I have had my best three years as a footballer there."
