The former Harriers defender Luke Jones returned to the club today on a one year deal after being signed from Forest Green Rovers. He was captain at Forest Green, who had offered their skipper another deal, but he has opted to sign for 'The Harriers' who he played with for a season and a half between 2008/2009, being a part of the side that came within a few points of the play-offs.
Although to Harriers fans he will be remembered for being sent off at Kings Lynn in the FA cup and subsequently having his place taken by Martin Riley.
This time around hopefully things may be different. He looked a decent player in his first spell with the club and after getting two Conference seasons under his belt with firstly Mansfield Town and the Forest Green he will hopefully be primed to take his place alongside Michael Briscoe next season.
In other news this week the Harriers manager, Steve Burr, revealed that Mark Albrighton and Lee Morris have been told that they can look for other clubs and it is likely that they will not be offered new deals. Jones looks to be a replacement for Albrighton who improved as the season wore on, but with age not on his side, it is perhaps a good move by Burr.
Morris also doesn't have age on his side and his time out of the game this season with injuries won't have helped his cause for contract renewal. However the Harriers boss hasn't completely ruled out offering them what is thought to be 'pay as you play' deals.
Burr has also said two players will sign hopefully before the end of the week, one of them looks to be former Wrexham loanee Marc Williams and the next will be up to speculation but hopefully a signing alongside the same lines as Jones.
