Under the terms of its existing groundshare agreement, Worcester City has formally advised National League Kidderminster Harriers that it will not be taking up its option for an extension to the current arrangement.

City will therefore leave Aggborough at the end of the current season.

Chairman Anthony Hampson said: “Worcester City Football Club has thoroughly enjoyed its stay at Aggborough and is extremely grateful to the Directors (and former Directors) at Kidderminster Harriers for the assistance they have given to us as a football club. I would particularly like to pay tribute to the office and backroom staff who have been so helpful to us.

“There is no doubt that Aggborough is a first class venue in which to play football and one which we leave reluctantly. However, as a Board we have to look at the long-term viability of the Worcester City Football Club. It is clear that with on-going delays surrounding our return to Worcester, remaining at Aggborough is un-affordable to us in the long-term. We must therefore pursue other alternatives.”

Worcester City will keep supporters advised of arrangements to be put in place for next (and future) seasons but at this point will be making no further comment on those arrangements until it has received all the formal approvals.
