ONE of the few positives from Kidderminster Harriers' relegation is determined to right the wrongs of last season.

Supporters' player of the campaign Amari Morgan-Smith has signed a new contract for 2024-25 in National League North after often ploughing a lone furrow up front.

Despite turning 35 in April, the forward's tireless performances and a sprinkling of goals — nine in the league — made him virtually undroppable with Morgan-Smith now scoring more than 50 across 200 games for Harriers in multiple spells.

The former Luton Town man, who returned to Aggborough in 2020 and helped Harriers get promoted to the National League in the first place, said of his deal: "Everyone knows my affinity with Kidderminster and I wanted to get it (done) sooner rather than later.

“I had a few offers from other National League clubs and clubs in our division but it would have taken a lot for me to change destinations.

“I think my duty now, and one of my aims, is to get the club back straight back where we belong and hopefully we can do it straight away.

“I have a duty because, as players, we got relegated as a football club and my responsibility is in doing the best I can to get the club promoted by any means necessary.”

Morgan-Smith said boss Phil Brown, his assistant Neil McDonald and technical director Dean Holdsworth all played a role in convincing him to stay.

He continued: “He (Brown), Macca and Dean were a big part in getting me over the line and knowing where we want to go.

“To get me, Hemmo (winger Ashley Hemmings) and Dibbs (keeper Christian Dibble) over the line and to try to attract new players, it shows we mean business.

“A club of this stature shouldn’t be looking for any less than getting promoted so I am excited for the new season.

“I am so thankful for all of the fans’ hard work last season. We were sorry we couldn’t do it but we want to put it right now.”

The summer appeal for fans to buy season tickets is in full swing and Brown said: "We can’t achieve anything without our supporters.

"The supporters are here through thick and thin. They are the key holders of this fantastic football club.

"They’ve supported us last season through the thin and hopefully it will be through the thick next year.”
