It could be a day of celebration tomorrow if the Harriers can get back to winning ways at home to newly promoted Alfreton Town.  We'll already have been celebrating in style for our 125th anniversary with balloons, flags and dancing girls before and during the game but the biggest cheer, apart from for the three points, will be for the parade of former Harriers stars and legends on the pitch at halftime.

125 years of Kidderminster Harriers The team will also be wearing a retro type of kit, for this game only, that has been especially commissioned to reflect the earliest kit we wore all those years ago.  Lee Vaughan and Jack Byrne are shown below modelling the kit and it will also be available as a numbered collectors item from the club.

We haven't won for two games now following a defeat at Wrexham and then the following Saturday a disappointing home draw against Ebbsfleet Utd that we looked to have had has good as won.  A late goal denied us the points and we must learn not to switch off at crucial times in future because that draw eventually saw us drop two places to fifth.

Lee Vaughan and Jack Byrne modelling the special shirts to celebrate 125 years of Kidderminster Harriers Marc Williams will be missing again after turning his ankle in a friendly at Crewe but Luke Medley is now back in contention for a place on the bench after recovering from a hip injury.

Rob Thompson-Brown and Jack Cresswell went out on loan to Solihull and Stourport Swifts, respectively, last week and that leaves the remainder of the squad for Steve Burr to choose from.

Alfreton, who are hovering just above Bath City in the league, have only won once this season and that came at York City, of all places, and that should sound a warning shot to similar sides that Nicky Laws team can spring a surprise when you're least expecting it.

They'll be without striker Paul Clayton (groin), Nathan Arnold (broken metatarsal), Anthony Wilson (broken metatarsal) and midfield player Anton Brown (hip flexor).  It's because of that reason that Laws signed a face familiar to all Harriers fans last week when Drewe Broughton popped in on his tour of Football League clubs.

It looks like his sights have finally been lowered after telling every club that he relegates that he's not dropping into non league football because the Football League is where he was meant to be.

Apart from Dreweee his new club are also the owners of another two players once linked with the Harriers.  Jake Moult, who was here on loan a few years back, has been with them for a while now and also Connor Franklin, who had pre season trial with us, is also with them after joining from Hinckley at the start of the season.

It might be a day of celebration for the Harriers but the only true celebration for the fans will be a return to winning ways and three points in the bag at five o'clock.
