Harriers add experienced defender to the ranks…

Boss Neil MacFarlane has added some extra bite to his back-line with the acquisition of defender Aaron Phillips.
The 25-year old has joined Harriers on a short-term deal after impressing the boss over the course of the last number of weeks in training.
MacFarlane has worked with Phillips, a robust full-back, during their time at Coventry City – the player having racked up the better part of 100 senior appearances at League 1 level, as well as dipping into non-league with a loan spell at Nuneaton.
He began last season in the EFL with Northampton Town but suffered a serious hip injury that curtailed his season. Now back fighting fit, he’s settled into the surroundings within the Harriers squad over the last month and is ready for competitive action once again.
The postponement of our game at Spennymoor on Saturday means any potential debut for Harriers will have to wait for Aaron. He’ll be available for the visit of Brackley to Aggborough next weekend (8 December).
