Harriers are pleased to announce that young goalkeeper, Tom Palmer, will remain at Aggborough for the upcoming campaign.
19 year old Palmer, who turns 20 next week, has penned a new one deal for the 19/20 season.
A Harriers Academy graduate, Palmer has made six appearances at first team level – the majority arriving in the latter part of the 18/19 season.
“…I really enjoyed the run I had – albeit it wasn’t a massive one – it was my first taste of a string of games…” Tom Palmer
He has been a regular in and around the first team since during the last three seasons, and has previously spent time out on loan with Stourport Swifts and Worcester City, as well as featuring at the 2018 V9 Academy.
Additionally, across the previous two seasons, Palmer has developed as a goalkeeping coach with Harriers Academy and Junior Academy.
Following the signing of his new deal, Palmer reflected on his first run of matches and looks forward to a “massive” season.
“It was good for me to get a taste of it, and I know now what I’ve got to do to better myself and progress here,” said Palmer.
“I really enjoyed the run I had – albeit it wasn’t a massive one – it was my first taste of a string of games.
“Whether that’s here or elsewhere, I’ve got to be playing games next year – it’s a big year for myself, I think”.
