  12. Kidderminster Harriers move: Current site not 'at the heart of our community'

    BBC Sport

    The chairman of Kidderminster Harriers says the club is proposing leaving Aggborough and building a new stadium so it can be in the "right position" for the local community.

    Harriers' proposed new home, based just off the Kidderminster/Stourport road

    The club, which has been at its current site since 1890, wants to move to a site at Zortech Avenue, close to Stourport, and sell their current home for housing redevelopment.

    Harriers hope that this will "secure the long-term future of the club".

    Quote Message: The simple fact of the matter is that we cannot be at the heart of our community if we're sat in the middle of a housing estate. The local population is growing dramatically and we just aren't physically in the right position to offer what we believe a football club should offer its community." from Colin Gordon Kidderminster Harriers chairman
