Lambs miss out on Harriers man
Lee Ayres
Ayres aims to force his way back into first-team contention at Kidderminster
Tamworth have lost out on the services of defender Lee Ayres after he decided to try and force his way back into the first-team picture at Kidderminster.

Ayres ended a successful month on loan at the Conference club with Saturday's 3-3 draw with Aldershot.

During his stay, the Lambs lost just once in seven games and the 21-year-old centre-back was being lined up for a permanent move.

But following the re-appointment of Jan Molby to the manager's job at Aggborough, Ayres has opted to return to the Harriers.

"He's gone back there initially," confirmed Tamworth boss Darron Gee.

"I did have a chat with Lee about possibly signing a contract for me.

"But there's a new manager there and someone who Lee has played under before and got on with.

"If he gets the chance to stay in the Football League good luck to him. If not, I'll probably try to work something out to bring him back here."

Following Ayres's departure, Gee is planning to add to his squad before Tamworth's next league game against Exeter City.

But before that he is looking forward to Saturday's FA Cup tie at Conference rivals Telford.

"It's a week away from the pressure of the league and looking at the table to see if we've managed to move up a place or gone down," added Gee, who is unable to call on on-loan Doncaster striker Tristram Whitman.

"They have beaten us once so the pressure will be on them to win again. We will be the underdogs so it's a chance to go there and relax, play our football and put on a show."
