First we had Martin Riley signing up for another year (should really be longer!!) and then before the euphoria had died down came the news that the long awaited signing of Chris McPhee had finally gone through. He's signed up for a far more sensible two year deal.
Martin joined us during the close season last year and struggled to get into the side at first due to the form of Luke Jones. Once Jones had got himself sent off in a FA Cup game at Kings Lynn Martin took his chance for the three weeks Jones was out and never looked back.
His displays from then on were those of an old head on young shoulders with the only 'blot' on his copybook coming in the controversial draw at Forest green when he was falsely sent off by a shambolic excuse for a referee.
Chris McPhee came to us in the wake of the destruction of Weymouth and his arrival welded the Harriers into a force to be reckoned with after plenty of in-consistent displays from the Reds. When the side was stupidly dismantled most Harriers fans thought that would be the last we would see of him and he was expected to sign for a club situated further South than Kidderminster.
He had talks with Cheltenham and there were also rumours of him joining Eastbourne but thankfully, and with the help of KHIST, we finally got our man.
