The Harriers, and Neil MacFarlane, made the first signing in readiness for the coming season today when Ashley Chambers arrived at Aggborough from near neighbours Nuneaton Borough.

New striker for the Harriers

The tall striker impressed when he played against us last season in both of the games between the two clubs and with his twenty goals for Boro he’ll hopefully be doing the same for us.

After starting his career with his home town in 2005, and playing nine times for them, he moved on to York City in 2011 after going out to a few teams on loan. His next port of call was Dagenham & Redbridge for two years before signing for Grimsby Town in 2016.

He signed a two year contract with Nuneaton last May following an earlier loan spell but with the financial problems at the Liberty that contract appears to have been ripped up.

Ashley has signed a two year contract with us and hopefully he’ll be playing alongside Joe Ironside in a two man strike force. Something we rarely saw under John Eustace and Matt Gardiner.

There are also rumours of a defender coming in on loan from Stevenage hopefully to play at left back and allow Sam Austin to play in his normal position out wide.
