... and his first game is likely to be against the Stags!
KIDDERMINSTER Harriers are delighted to confirm reports that former England Youth international Adam Murray has agreed an 18-month contract with the club.

It will be the second spell at Aggborough for the 22-year old who played three games for Harriers on loan earlier in the season.

The former England Under-20 international, whose career was put on hold while he recovered from alcohol-related problems, has also enjoyed recent non-contract outings with Solihull Borough, Burton Albion and, more recently, Notts County.

However Harriers have beaten off a host of clubs to get the player's signature. Moroccan side Raja Casablanca, Walsall, Stockport, Oxford, Northampton anc Notts County were all rumoured to have shown an interest.

Jan Molby, speaking exclusively to the Official Website was pleased to finally capture the man he had tracked since his return to management at Aggborough.

“We're obviously delighted to have Adam on board with us,” he said. “There was a lot if interest in him but the important thing is he wanted to come here and play for us.

“The problems he has had in his personal life have been well documented but coming here will allow him to begin a new chapter in his life and in his career.

“There's no doubting his is a very good player who I'm sure can still make it as a First Division footballer. He's a Birmingham lad and by agreeing to sign for us it will allow him to stay settled in the area and hopefully get back to enjoying his football again. I think he will have every opportunity to do that at Kidderminster”

“He can't wait to get started and I'm sure he will be a fantastic signing for us.”

Murray will have two further weeks wait before pulling on a red shirt again. The midfielder is cup-tied having made a substitute's appearance for Notts County against Gravesend earlier in the competition and is ineligible for next week's FA Clash with Wolves.

Murray's first game back at the club could be for the trip to Mansfield Town – a club he enjoyed a loan spell at two seasons ago.
