From there he moved across the River Wye to play for Mark Yates' Cheltenham Town and stayed there for four seasons making over a hundred and fifty appearances for them. The thirty year old then left for York City and stayed with them until just before Christmas when he announced that he wanted to leave due to the travelling distance from his Stafford home and the arrival of a new baby.
It was hoped by many Harriers fans that he might return to us but with the club in such a state financially and the policy of signing children it all seemed very unlikely.
Thankfully with the dismissal of Dave Hockaday we now seem to have a more robust plan in place to bring in more experience to get us out of the mess we have slumped into. The signing of Arthur Gnahoua heralded that and now the signing of Lowe confirms it.
He would have signed in time for this evenings game at Braintree Town but seeing as that was a victim of the weather it now means that ironically the first game that he'll play for us in a Harriers shirt is away at Cheltenham next Tuesday evening.
This good news also comes on top of yesterdays news of Ben Whitfield being allowed to stay with us on loan for a further month by his parent club Bournemouth. Hopefully that will be prolonged until the end of the season at some stage soon.
