How did the young Harriers get on?

This past weekend saw our youth teams kick off their seasons in their respective Junior Premier League Divisions.
The first part of the season sees the teams playing clubs from across the West Midlands in regionalised seeding games. All of our squads have been chomping at the bit to get the season underway so Saturday was great to see all the young players pulling on the Harriers shirt and kicking off their season.
The results were of a totally mixed bag but each and every team walked away from their games with positives and specific areas of development required of which they will work upon over the course of the next few weeks.
This week sees the final week of pre-season at Centre of Sporting Excellence for all the teams as they move to Baxter College to train every Monday and Thursday evening on their 3G pitch.
Harriers’ Adam Crowle commented: “Having all of our teams now up and running with their league campaigns is great to see.
“The next stages are to develop every single player within our youth setup so that they mature both as footballers and as young athletes.
“It is our job to ensure our staff are focused on this development and can offer the expertise required.”
