Harriers won't be offering new terms to midfielder...

Harriers are to part company with another of its 2012/13 squad this summer with the news that midfielder Keith Briggs will not be offered new terms with the club. 

The 31 year-old made an impressive contribution to the campaign just ended, in what was his second spell at Aggborough after he also spent the 2010/11 season here as captain.

In between there was a season at Fleetwood Town in which Briggs was part of the Cod Army squad who achieved promotion to the Football League by winning the Conference title.

Speaking today, Assistant boss Gary Whild hailed experience and leadership of the experienced former Stockport man, commenting: “Much like Mike Williams I cannot fault Keith’s professionalism and he has been a great servant to the club over the course of the two years he’s spent here.

“If the players we’re able to bring in next season are do half the kind of job that the likes of Keith has done for us then we are only ever going to continue to progress and we wish him all the very best for the future because I’m sure he won’t have a problem getting fixed up.”

Briggs made 85 appearances for Harriers in his two spells, scoring seven goals.
