Mills a 'no no', Christie a 'maybe'
Jan Molby has told the Harriers fans that he will not be pursuing the signing of Lee Mills after failing to agree on terms.
There's been a great deal of confusion over this because the club originally confirmed the story in the Express & Star that he would be signing for us after being released by the be-leagured Telford Utd and I printed a story about it. A few days later and the club tried to deny it by saying that he was still in talks.
It appears that this was now the case and Mills won't be coming here.
We have now been told that the ex Coventry City, Orient and Mansfield striker, Isyeden Christie, is about to sign after impressing Jan in training. How he can be that impressive surprises me because he missed the end of his last season with Mansfield with a broken foot and has had a screw inserted to fuse the fracture back together. This is due to be removed in September and so he won't be available to play for us until at least the end of that month.
Unless Molby has another striker lined up I would say that it could be a risky signing. If it does come off and alls well then he could be a good signing according to Mansfield fans.
Other player movements this week has seen Stuart Brock sign for local Doc Martens side Halesowen Town. A bit of a drop for a keeper who I thought would have walked into any League side.
