KIDDERMINSTER Harriers have stopped their legal action against Kath and Ernie Lane as attempts to find a solution to the club’s cashflow problems continue.

The Aggborough outfit had originally threatened to sue the former directors over funds the club claimed they were contractually owed.

But talks between the two parties have been encouraging, with the Lanes also contributing a five-figure sum to help Harriers pay the most recent wage bill.

Reds chairman Ken Rae said: “At the moment we are not continuing our legal action against Ernie and Kath because of the dialogue we’ve opened with them.

“I can confirm they have also contributed an amount of cash. The club can continue legal proceedings if the dialogue breaks down but at the moment we’re talking.”

Kidderminster still face a number of financial challenges, including paying off former manager Andy Thorn and assistant Craig Knight.

They are also still searching for new investors to help give the club a financial boost.

Meanwhile, shareholders Barry Norgrove, Jane Murrant and Neil Savery were also looking for new backers, with the aim to get the club through until the end of the season.

“Kath and I are back involved at the club and we’re working with the board,” confirmed Ernie Lane, who is not set to return as a director.

“We have had a lot of support from so many of the fans during this episode, which we both really appreciate.

“We have helped with the current situation and are also working to fix the club’s problems for next month as well.

“What we do not want is Harriers to experience the same problems that our friends at Hereford United are going through.”

Meanwhile, Harriers will be aiming to bounce back from their first defeat of the Vanarama Conference against Southport on Tuesday, when they go to Braintree on Saturday (3pm ko).

Gary Whild’s side then entertain Altrincham on Tuesday (7.45pm ko).
