Incoming: James Dance
Providing competition for Marvin Johnson on the Harriers wing is former Luton Town man James Dance.
He is a player that Harriers have been linked with in the past and is known to Gary Whild who was in charge of Redditch United when Dance had a spell there.
After starting his career in the youth set-ups at Birmingham and then Cheltenham he came to prominence at Coleshill Town where he banged in 44 goals in 162 appearances before a brief stop at Rushall on the way to Redditch. After Redditch his career took an upward path, first to Kettering and then Crawley. He joined Luton in the summer of 2011 and spent two seasons there, although part of last season was spent at Nuneaton Town.
Steve Burr’s first signing of the summer told the Official Website on his arrival, “There were a few dark days last season. If someone had told me that I’d be here at the start of this season, I wouldn’t have believed them at that time. So I do feel a bit fortunate. I know Gary Whild well and I am looking forward to working with the manager and I know a lot of the lads so I couldn’t have picked a better club.”
