David Bird With a terrible injury list, and two players out suspended, this afternoon the Harriers manager Steve Burr moved into the loan market to bring in David Bird from Cheltenham Town for the next month.

The 26yr old midfielder was once a regular in the side but he has failed to get many games so far this season and will go straight into the side that plays at Barrow tomorrow.

He joined the Robins at the age of 17 and has played over 250 games in his time with the club but this season has seen their manager, Mark Yates, attempt to change things round a bit by bringing in new players, including former Harrier Russ Penn, and Bird has now found himself down the pecking order (pun intended) and eager for games.

Bird said this about his move:
I am looking forward to a new challenge because I have been at Cheltenham for ten years and never known what it's like at a new club!

When you aren't playing games sometimes you need to get yourself away and sometimes that can give you the little bit of hunger or a boost that you're missing.

Kidderminster have been doing very well in the league and that is one of the main reasons why I wanted to come and get involved.

Burr was also hoping to bring in a goalkeeper to as cover for Dean Lyness but this is now looking unlikely.
