CHAIRMAN Rod Brown has assured Kidderminster Harriers fans they are under no pressure to give their shares back to the club.

The Aggborough outfit sent out a letter to all shareholders asking them to return their stake back to the Reds in a bid to help attract new investors.

The most up to date records show that 4,787,865 have been issued for Kidderminster Harriers, which are split between hundreds of fans, former board members and those who have put money into the club.

While Colin Gordon took a controlling stake in the club when he purchased the shares from Barry Norgrove, Jane Murrant and Neil Savery in October, there remains a handful of groups and individuals who own large numbers as well as and many of supporters with tiny amounts.

Brown said: "There were nearly five million shares issued for Harriers to raise funds for the club but that has really been exhausted.

"We've got a situation where we've got lots of fans with small amounts that to all intent and purposes are worthless.

"We could issue more shares but that would devalue them even further.

"We've asked fans to give the shares back to the club and if we get enough it will help us find new investors.

"We've contacted all the shareholders and there's no pressure, it's up to them.

"I can assure them that there's nothing untoward going on.

"It's not about Colin Gordon getting more shares, he's already got the controlling majority."

According to the latest records, Kate and Ernie Lane own 703,668 shares, while board member Wayne Allen has 385,999.

Former chairman Mark Serrell possesses 410,704, Dave Reynolds has 221,704, while Kidderminster Harriers Indepedent Supporters Trust (KHIST) also own a large chunk.

Supporters maybe unwilling to give away their part of the club and lose having a voice at the club's AGM.
