JOHN Davies has stepped down from Kidderminster Harriers' board of directors.

Davies, who owns the club's main shirt sponsors Hire It, has decided to resign as a director following the departure of Mark Serrell as chairman on Saturday.

Serrell and wife Ruth left the club after citing abuse from fans disgruntled with the team's form following the sacking of Steve Burr and replacing by Andy Thorn.

Davies said: "I was devastated by Mark's decision to resign and the reasons why.

"The negative chanting does not help the players or manager and if fans are unhappy they could have spoke to me.

"I am still a Harriers fan and love the club, I am not walking away."
