DAVE Hockaday has left his head coach role at Kidderminster Harriers.

But while there some encouraging signs, Harriers have struggled and remain bottom of the Vanarama National League.

Under his stewardship, Kiddy lost to Stourbridge twice in the FA Cup and FA Trophy.

He did guide Harriers to wins over Woking and Aldershot, their only two of the season, but they had lost the last six games and were 12 points from safety and bottom of the Vanarama National League.

Chairman Rod Brown said: “We’d like to thank Dave for his hard work and contribution to the club during his time with us.

"We’ve talked at length and both agree that this is the right move forward.”
