Harriers Online. The wonderful world of Kidderminster Harriers

Aggborough news
Date: 06-05-07 The tension is mounting
With less than a week to go until the big day the tension is definitely building up both in the Kidderminster area and the Stevenage area too.    In fact you could say that it's a hot topic all over the country with fans reported to be travelling to the new Wembley Stadium from all parts.

On this website we have been told of eager fans from Cambridge, Weymouth, Chippenham, Forest Green, Altrincham, Northwich and many other places all making their way to Wembley.    Neutral fans all wanting to get behind the Harriers, see the new national sporting arena and most of all to enjoy a great day out.

There are believed to be around fifty coaches leaving the Wyre Forest area on Saturday morning and along with those going by train and in their own cars it should be quite a sight on the M42/M40 on May 12th.

Jonny Harkness So far the club have reported ticket sales of near 24,000 and Stevenage have also claimed a similar number.    Add into that figure the sales made directly from the FA themselves, the allocation given to other football clubs, the members of Club Wembley that have bought their seats for a set period of time and we could be looking at a new FA Trophy record of near to 80,000 supporters inside the Stadium ready to cheer their elected team on.

The Harriers team will be travelling down this coming Thursday to their hotel base near to Bisham Abbey in Berkshire.    At Bisham Abbey itself they will undergo training sessions and also prepare themselves both physically and mentally for what is the most important game in recent years for the Harriers.

At Wembley the team will be wearing a slight change to our usual colours of red and black with us wearing white shorts while Stevenage will be wearing white shirts with red shorts.

It's not known yet who will be chosen to line up for the game but it should be the usual team selection without the unlucky Jonny Harkness (pictured right) who found himself cruelly deprived of his place following a second sending off last month.

In charge of the game will be Chris Foy from Liverpool.    A Premiership standard referee.

Following the game, victorious or not, there will be an open top bus tour of Kidderminster the next day, Sunday.    This will leave the Hoobrook Trading Estate at 2:00pm and make it's way into the town centre via the A449 Worcester Road and then towards Tescos where it will end up outside the Town Hall for a civic salute and from there make it's way to Aggborough via Blackwell Street and Coventry Street before heading for Hoo Road.

Whatever result we get at Wembley it's sure to be a great day out for everyone.    Just remember to cheer the lads on and also give a big thank you to everyone that has worked hard to transport us all down to London.
