jan mounts another raid on the welsh
After the solitude of recent weeks at Aggborough, when very little was happening on the news front and the only things of any importance on the official website were about the new shirts and the quiz game, we get the second new signing of the week.
With the arrival of Danny Williams from Wrexham comes Jans second raid into the Principality with the signing of Steve Jones from Swansea.
Jones is another one of Jans old players to be signed up and is said to be a versatile defender in that he can play in most positions in defence.
31yr old Jones was once on Cheltenhams books and when he was released by the Swans at the end of the season they were hoping to lure him back to Whaddon Rd.
And Molby's other signing, Williams, has said that he is looking forward to playing for the Harriers and didn't mind dropping down into a lower division.
He likes the set up at Aggborough and can't wait to get stuck in.
Now for more good news.
Neil Mackenzie has finally signed his contract and will have one more season at Aggborough.
Lets hope he can also get stuck in and maybe earn an extension on the contract.
Molby said that:
"Neil showed us in patches last season what a good player he can be but he also realises there are aspects of his game he must improve on.
He knows he faces tough competition to gain a first team place next season but the pleasing thing is he is ready to give it a go.
He will give us good options and I just hope he can prove to us what a good player he can be."
Other news that affects the Reds is that one of Jans other targets, Coventrys young defender Danny Hill, will probably sign for Norwich City this week.
But now that we have signed two defenders I shouldn't think that it would matter now.
John Durnin looks likely to be joining Div 2 side Wigan Athletic this week as player-coach.
Durnin, who is 36yrs old in August, was released by Harriers at the end of last season as the club's leading scorer with nine goals.
The talk was of him going to Macclesfield but this now seems unlikely with them already having three player-coaches.
Harriers Worthington Cup tie against Preston North End will definitely be played on Tuesday 21st August after the news that it will not be one of the chosen televised games.
These are to be Hartlepool vs Nottingham Forest on the 20th and Cambridge Utd vs WBA on the 22nd.
On the subject of games on the TV Rushdens first home game of the season against Lincoln City on Thursday 16th August will be the only Div 3 game to be shown between the start of the season and the end of October.
After originally being due to be played on Saturday 18th it was changed to a midweek game.
