Joe Lolley signed for the Harriers after impressing in a pre season friendly at Chasetown where he scored a well crafted hat trick. He was already on Steve Burrs radar having been a member of Steve Guinans University side that toured Russia earlier in the summer.
Before he joined the Harriers he played for Littleton in the Midland Combination and scored 88 times in 83 games. A record that he'll be hoping to replicate at Aggborough one day.
By the time Joe left the club six months later he had become a legend in the eyes of Harriers fans by scoring the winning goal in a five goal thriller at Peterborough in the FA Cup 3rd round. That goal was to give the club a big day out at Premiership side Sunderland but sadly, for us, it marked the end of his time at Aggborough when the following day he joined Championship side Huddersfield Town for a reputed £250,000 complete with add ons in the future.
