Shaun Cunnington was bought to the club in August 1998 by the former Harriers manager Graham Allner but he never really became a fans favourite. 

Shaun started his career as a trainee at Wrexham before moving to Grimsby in 1988 for a fee of £65,000. He quickly became a firm favourite there before moving to Sunderland in 1992 for a fee of £650,000.

His next stop was at the Hawthorns where he spent three years with West Bromwich Albion before moving on to Notts County.

After he joined us he suffered from a lot of injuries and eventually retired from playing the game in May 2000 to become a coach. Once he got his qualifications he returned to the club in 2003 to become Youth Team coach.

On October 28th 2004 he was appointed Caretaker Manager after Jan Molby resigned from being the Harriers manager for the second time following a bad run of results and a place at the foot of the table.

His crack at management didn’t work out and we lost all five games that we played under his stewardship. He went back to being Youth Team coach when Stuart Watkiss became the Harriers new manager but left in July 2005 to spend more time running his Italian restaurant in Droitwich.
