Kidderminster Harriers and Stourport Swifts are thrilled to be working closely together during the course of the season to help continue player development and strengthen links between the two clubs.

A number of Harriers’ young players are due to spend time with Swifts during the coming months to gain key first-team match experience with the Midland League side.

Dan Sweeney is already part way through an initial one-month spell at Walshes Meadow and netted his first goal for the club in their recent league win over Tividale.

Striker George Taylor is also set to move to Stourport ahead of this weekend.

Harriers Chairman Colin Gordon commented: “With no Reserve side we have been have been looking for some time to find a means of giving some of our most promising players experience in a competitive environment.

“Some of our young, contracted players as well as players who are making real progress with our Academy will really benefit from this, and it’s great for us to know they they’re being taken care of at Stourport where the set-up is really good.”

Swifts Chairman Pip Hanson added: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Stourport Swifts to increase the strength of our first team squad, and for the Harriers to give some of their promising youngsters some first team action in a competitive league.”
