Date: 31-01-2008 Constable and Bevan shock
The Harriers burst into transfer activity this evening as the transfer deadline loomed at midnight tonight.

James Constable The biggest surprise of the day was the loss of both James Constable and Scott Bevan to local League 2 side Shrewsbury Town.  It's not so much of a surprise though as disappointment and anger that the fans have been deceived into thinking that we were a club with one eye on getting back into the Football League and the other on assembling a squad good enough to achieve that.

Our hopes have now been crushed by the scheming and conniving of a puppet board led wittingly by a morally and criminally corrupt so called financial wizard who is not even a director of the club that he has helped destroy.  The sooner this man and his cronies are out of the club the better and that should start at the game tomorrow with fans calling from the start for this board to be removed.

In place of our beloved Beano and Bevan we get Chris Mackenzie and Luke Jones.  We all know about Mackenzie and the shocking mistakes he is capable of and at the same stroke some excellent saves but this will be of no use to him now that Bevan has gone. We're stuck with Calamity Chris whether we like it or not.  Jones is a cheap option that no one knows anything about and is here for just one month before he goes back to Shrewsbury reserves.

There were also farewells to the club captain Stuart Whitehead.  After 77 appearances for the club in recent weeks he has suffered a tragic loss of form and the rumours have been flying around Aggborough of a major falling out with the manager Mark Yates.

This evening he has signed for, technically, his former club AFC Telford.  He played for them when they were known as Telford Utd before the old club went under and was held in great esteem there because he is said to have played for free during the final days of the old club.

Stuart Whitehead Also going out was another surprise departure in Michael Blackwood after he signed for Oxford Utd until the end of the season.  He must have felt shit on just like us fans after being asked to cover in the left back slot for most of the season then shipped out at the earliest opportunity as a thank you.  He'll join up with Justin Richards after he left for Oxford last week.

Coming in earlier in the afternoon was Darryl Knights, on loan until the end of the season from Yeovil.  He has recently been on loan at Cambridge Utd and played against us in our 1-0 victory against them just before Christmas.

He looked quite handy then and could be a good acquisition for us.

The third player moving this way was the Wolves youngster Matthew Bailey.  This is his first time out on loan since he joined the Molineux side nine years ago but at only 19yrs old the rookie midfielder will be looking to get some first team games under his belt.

Not much is known about him really so it's not understood if this is the creative midfield maestro that we've all been hankering after.
