Kidderminster Harriers sign striker Tommy Wright

Kidderminster Harriers have signed former Darlington striker Tommy Wright on non-contract terms.

The 26-year-old told BBC Hereford and Worcester he is hoping to earn himself a longer deal.

"I came down last Wednesday for the behind-closed-doors friendly against Walsall and that went well," he said.

"Obviously I am delighted to sign and it gives me the chance to try to impress and hopefully earn myself a bigger contract."

Wright's arrival at Aggborough is a timely one as Harriers' experienced striker Steve Guinan is about to begin a three-match ban following his red card in the 5-2 midweek defeat at Fleetwood Town.

Wright's former clubs include Barnsley and Leicester City, and he also enjoyed a two-year spell with SPL side Aberdeen, who paid £75,000 for his services.

He twice featured for Darlington against Harriers last season and impressed the Aggborough club's manager Steve Burr.

"This is a deal that suits both parties really, especially with us losing Steve Guinan for three games," said Burr.

"Tommy is a good player and someone who is keen to come in and prove himself.

"He has a good opportunity to try to earn himself something more permanent and we're looking forward to working with him."
