Your chance to join Harriers...

Are you aged 16-19? Are you looking for your next step, and interested in being able to play football and gain a sport qualification?

You may be interested to know that Birmingham Metropolitan College's Kidderminster Harriers Football Academy has been holding its male football trials for school leavers.

The successful Kidderminster Harriers Football Academy is in its sixth year and has produced successful players ready to start professional careers, with nine  students having been offered professional contracts with Kidderminster Harriers first team, winning a steady stream of accolades in local, regional and national football competitions. Current Harriers defender, Tyrone Williams is an Academy graduate; as is Birmingham City's Luke Maxwell who was signed from Harriers in 2016.

We have also had a number of students who have progressed onto university and now have careers in the football industry.

By joining the Harriers Academy, you could follow the same path as Dan Sweeney, Tyrone Williams and Luke Maxwell – the midfielder sold from Harriers to Birmingham City in 2016. And that’s just to name a few!

The date you need to remember is FRIDAY, 24TH FEBRUARY 2017.

If you’re interested, you must book your place by registering online HERE before Wednesday, 15th February.

You can also contact the Academy Manager by emailing

Meet time on the day is 11am at the Kidderminster Harriers ground, Aggborough Stadium.

We also have a trial date on Thursday, 13th April 2017 - you can read more details by clicking the registration link above.
