  • young striker heads for aggborough

    Harriers have taken 19yr old Colin Larkin on a one month loan from Wolves.

    Irish born Larkin has made four first team appearances in two years for the Wolves but is yet to make an appearance this season.

    The young striker has so far scored three goals in four reserve outings this term and Wolves boss Dave Jones says that it will be a good experience for him to play in front of the massive crowds at Aggborough.

    "Itís the next stage of Colinís education and it will be of great benefit to him to play in front of crowds for a few weeks.
    He has enjoyed a good season in the reserves so far, and has been starting to live up to expectations and showing signs of the potential we know that he has.

    The advantages are that he will be local to us and he will be provided with good education by Kidderminsterís manager, Jan Molby, who is an experienced man."

    The first time he played for the first team was at Wycombe in the first round of the 1999 Worthington Cup.

    The Wolves, as usual, were 3-0 down and Larkin was sent on to try and salvage something.

    The young striker scored with a superb first time volley within minutes of entering the action and that effort earned him a place in the starting line-up for the following game, a League fixture against Walsall.
    But he was substituted in that game and didn't play again until the following season when he made to appearances as a sub against QPR and Gillingham.

    Although Dave Jones says that the move will not become permanent with the possible exit of Drewe Broughton that remains to be seen.
