Kidderminster Harriers have announced that John Eustace has today left the club to take up a coaching role at Championship side Queens Park Rangers.
The 38-year-old will become Steve McClaren’s assistant manager after the former England chief was named Manager there last week. Arriving here at Harriers a little over two years ago, Eustace transformed the team’s style of play and has overseen two memorable campaigns, both in which the team have made the play-offs in National League North and the First Round proper of the FA Cup.
Chairman Colin Gordon said: “I said when we appointed John that he was a remarkable coach who would go on to have a terrific career in this side of the game so the fact he has been sounded out by such an established manager and a huge club is no surprise.
“Steve McClaren knew John well as a player but believes he’s also one of the finest young coaches he’s come across and was determined that he be part of things at QPR – quite simply it’s the ethos of this club that we won’t stand between hard-working, ambitious people and those kinds of opportunities.”
