Kidderminster Harriers have announced the sale of the club to a consortium of local business people.
The takeover of the National League North outfit is headed by Kidderminster-born Richard Lane, owner of EBC Group, which specialises in office Cloud technology. Lane told Harriers’ website:
“I grew up less than a mile from Aggborough and started watching the club when I was two, with my father, ‘Rocky’ Lane. His years of enthusiasm for the club concluded with him becoming a director a few years later, to which I am very proud, especially when I reflect on what thefootball cub achieved in his tenure.
“We can see the enormous potential here for the club to do something very special in the community. There are some immediate challenges ahead of us, namely ensuring that the club is stable and self-sufficient, not just for now, but for the future, so that the club’s supporters have a team to watch and a club to support for many more years to come.
“That is our only immediate priority.”
