Boss Neil MacFarlane with Ashley Chambers

NEW signing Ashley Chambers admits it’s a thrill to be playing for Harriers rather than lining up against them following his arrival at Aggborough.

The 28-year-old marksman inked a two-year deal to become boss Neil MacFarlane’s first signing of the summer this week.

It comes after a season in which he slammed home 25 goals at this level for Nuneaton – though the man himself concedes it will be a welcome change to be in Aggborough’s home dressing room!

Though he netted the only goal late on in a 1-0 win last August, Chambers was powerless to stop Harriers romping to a comfortable win in the return fixture on an afternoon in which the visitors imploded.

Now, though, he’ll be pulling on that red and white shirt, telling our YouTube channel: “There is no denying that the football that’s played here is brilliant.

“It is always a joy to watch, but it’s not always a joy to play against!

“I’m really excited at the prospect of how many chances I’m going to get to score goals!”  Ashley Chambers

“It was a really big selling point – and knowing how ambitious the club are and the infrastructure that’s here in place, it ticks all the boxes.

“[The club] have had a good couple of seasons and just failed to get over the final hurdle, and I am hoping this will be a good season and that we can finally do that and push on.

“I don’t know how many footballers wouldn’t want to play in a team that play the ball on the ground, and play quick, fast, attacking football – I’m really excited at the prospect of how many chances I’m going to get to score goals!”

“I’m looking forward to being in the shirt rather than against it.”
