For the Harriers it was just one player in but four going the other way with Josh O'Keefe (left) joining us from Hereford just three days after scoring against us at Edgar Street on Tuesday evening. Not exactly a fans favourite down there but on the night he did look useful and was one of the better players on the pitch. Ironically he also scored against us at Aggborough on Boxing Day although his second half goal wasn't enough to stop their defeat.
O'Keefe has obviously been bought in to replace the departing Lee Fowler after he had his contract cancelled by mutual consent, as did the other two leaving today. Fowler had quickly fallen out of favour since the arrival of new manager Andy Thorn and that has been rumoured to be down to talking to the press. Fowler was expected to join up with Stevie Burrs Chester City today but now that he's a free agent he can sign for them whenever he wants.
The other three that departed the club were James Dance, Dior Angus and Jack Dyer. Of the three Dance had played the most games and always seemed to be a favourite choice as a substitute when Steve Burr was in charge but then surprisingly he was shipped out on loan to Rushall at the start of January just days before Burr was sacked.
Burr bought Angus to the Harriers before the start of the season as a player for the future but after appearing in a few games he found himself dropped completely but made the bench as an un-used sub at Sunderland. His las game for us was in the 6-0 defeat at Luton over Christmas when he came on two minutes from the end of the game. Dior has re-joined Solihull Moors, the team he left to come to us.
Also joining up with the Moors today was the man we love to hate, Exodus Geohaghan.
Jack Dyer was the third, but first, player to leave the club when he was re-called to Burton Albion this morning. Jack came on loan to us the day before our home game against Peterborough in the FA Cup and was due to return back to his club following tomorrows game at Gateshead. He made a total of five appearances during his time here.
There were two other players that fans were worried that we might be losing but, so far, Anthony Malbon and Chey Dunkley are still with the club.
