Pears star enjoys day at Harriers

Pears’ man becomes a Harrier for the day…

HARRIERS have been thriving as the #PrideofWorcestershire this season – so much so that even one of the County’s local cricket stars has been taking notice!

With the club working hard to forge links in county schools and with the introduction of the new Malvern Hub, it’s been a good season for the County’s top football team.

But with good football on show at Aggborough Stadium and a friendly buzz around the place, it’s only natural that those who’ve been enjoying it aren’t strictly limited to football fans within Worcestershire. Far from it, in fact.

Worcestershire County Cricket Club’s Daryl Mitchell, the 34-year-old batsman who spent six years as the Pears’ skipper, even popped along to Aggborough to see what all the fuss was about.

The Badsey-born player launched a pre-weekend poll on his Twitter account to see where he ought to spend his sporting afternoon, and Harriers came out top trumps. It’s safe to say he enjoyed the afternoon as Harriers picked up a 3-0 win over Southport.

Here’s his Tweet as an honorary member of the red army:

Clearly impressed with the football on offer, he went on to add:

It was our pleasure to have Daryl take in a game at Aggborough, as many Harriers fans enjoy the action at New Road in the summer months.

You Peeeeeeeeears! (Although, as we cheekily reminded Daryl):
