Harriers boss set for talks with Forest Green
4:38pm Friday 1st November 2013 in News
HARRIERS have given manager Steve Burr permission to talk to Forest Green over their vacant hot seat position.
The club confirmed this afternoon that it had received a request from their Conference Premier rivals about talking to Burr.
After Gateshead boss Gary Mills and Micky Mellon had turned down the chance to work at the New Lawn, Kidderminster's manager became their number one target and was favourite for some internet bookies yesterday.
Harriers can expect compensation for their manager, who extended his deal at Aggborough until 2016 in April.
Burr is rated as one of non-league's best managers and since joining Kidderminster in January 2010 he has guided them to two sixth place finishes and and second last season.
Forest Green are keen to find a replacement for Dave Hockaday, who left his position last week, to guide an expensively assembled squad which is expected to deliver promotion to the Football League.
Assistant boss Gary Whild will take the reins for tomorrow's league clash at Barnet (3pm ko).
