Harriers ready for Foxes friendly
After 3 friendlies where we have beaten lower opposition and scored 10 goals in the process we greet tougher foes tomorrow when newly promoted to the Prem, Leicester City, arrive at Aggborough.
This game will also see the opening of the new, as yet, un-named stand. For pics of new stand click here. To us it'll look impressive but to City it'll look non-league now they're used to the brand new Walker Stadium.
This will be City's first friendly of the coming season and will be the first time that many of their fans will have seen their 8 new signings.
New manager, Mickey Adams, has been busy in the market place picking up 'bargins' and free transfer players. Some quite interesting names are there.
The one that should get the most attention tomorrow will be the 37yr old Les Ferdinand. He must be nearing the end of his career by now having seen action with QPR, Spurs, Newcastle and West Ham.
Another name worth a mention is Ricardo Scimeca. We came up against him in the Worthless Cup last season when we lost 4-0 at Forest.
The other new signings are Steve Howey, Paul Brooker, Danny Coyne, Lilian Nalis, Keith Gillespie and Ben Thatcher. Adams is also hoping to bring in Craig Hignett from Blackburn and Stephen Pearson from Scottish side, Motherwell, in time for the game.
It'll also be the first chance for many Harriers fans to see our only new signing, Matt Gadsby, and a host of triallists including Kyle Lightbourne, Narada, Graham Danks and John Williams (I've just checked to see if he has played for City amongst his 30 other clubs but he hasn't).
We might still be without the injured Bo Henriksen although Lee Ayres did get a run out against Boldmere along with Scott Stamps.
This game will be the start of Brits decision making on which triallists to keep and which ones to jettison. So far there have not been any bad ones which is good news because we desperately need to add to our minuscule squad.
A good crowd is expected tomorrow and with parking space now at an all time low get there early.
