Michael McGrath took his leave of the Harriers today after originally being touted as a Championship player of the future by boss Mark Yates.  He was given a two year contract on the back of that ill-conceived statement and has hardly made an appearance since then.

Michael McGrath After making 53 appearances for us since he joined in March 2006 he joined Worcester City on loan in September last year after making just one appearance as a substitute in the Altrincham game in mid August.  He only ever scored twice during his time with us.

To be honest the lad had a lot of quality that is sadly out of place at this level in the Blue Square and could, with the right coaching and a diet of large steaks, go on to better things.  He was a very cultured player and could spot a decent pass but once the ball had left his foot he failed to make any kind of move to follow up the pass and preferred to hang around waiting for someone else to pass the ball back to him.

His laissez faire attitude to playing was to earn him the nickname of 'Stroller' and at times it was a fair reflection of him.

After his contract was ended by mutual agreement earlier today he has now been given a chance to show his worth at Oxford Utd tonight when he plays in a trial/practise game at Didcot.

Another player on the move to the same destination is Craig Nelthorpe.  The former loan player from the Autumn of 2006 has finally been released from Doncaster Rovers after spending most of his time out on loan at other clubs.  He has now joined Oxford until the end of this season.

Other former Harriers on the move today include the former Harriers hero Jeff Kenna.  He had originally, verbally, agreed to stay as the manager of Galway Utd for another season after guiding them to safety from relegation but today he walked out on the club to become the new manager of St Patricks.  Another former Harrier hero has now been installed as the new manager giving Ian Foster his first crack at management.
