Jerry Gill

Gill spent a short spell as Weymouth manager in 2010

Former Birmingham City and Cheltenham player Jerry Gill has joined Kidderminster Harriers as manager of their new Football Academy.

The project, a joint-scheme with Stourbridge College, will see 70 youngsters combine academic studies with coaching in football.

Gill, 40, spent five years with Cheltenham, and his most recent job was youth team coach at Bristol Rovers.

He left that post in February after Dave Penney's appointment as manager.
