Worcester extend deal to play at Harriers

First published in News

HARRIERS will share their  home pitch with Worcester City for a second season after they took up an option to play at Aggborough.

City made the ground on Hoo Road their new temporary home last summer after leaving their historic St George’s Lane stadium.

Aggborough has hosted 20 Worcester matches so far, while Harriers have graced their ground 22 times in all competitions.

There have been concerns that the playing surface has suffered as a result of the workload but despite the wettest winter in recorded history, Kidderminster have had just one match postponed.

City Company Secretary John Jordan said of the news: “From our point of view we have found the Aggborough experience to be a very positive one and are delighted to have extended the arrangement for a further season.

“We remain grateful to all directors, staff and supporters from Kidderminster Harriers who have made us feel so welcome.

“We have received many positive comments from our supporters about the first class match day experience offered at Aggborough and very much hope that they will continue to support the Club through next season.”

Harriers Chairman Ken Rae added: “Understandably, Worcester moving to Aggborough temporarily was a bit of step into the unknown to a certain extent but everyone has been pleased with how things have gone.

“The grounds staff have worked tremendously hard and, approaching the business end of the season for both teams, I think it’s fair to say that hard work is bearing fruit because the pitch is in good condition all things considered.

“We look forward to working with Worcester City again over the course of the next year or so.”

Supporters of both teams can catch their side in action at Aggborough this coming weekend (22nd and 23rd March) with Harriers hosting Southport in the Skrill Premier on Saturday before Sunday’s Skrill North clash between City and Vauxhall Motors.

Both matches kick-off at 3pm.
