Dave Reynolds Returns As Chairman
Dave Reynolds has returned to the club as chairman
At a board meeting on Thursday evening a offer from Mr Reynolds to take control of the club was accepted by the board. A brief statement from the new chairman published on the Official Website reads:
"STATEMENT FROM DAVID REYNOLDS, CHAIRMAN OF KIDDERMINSTER HARRIERS FOOTBALL CLUB LIMITED
I would like to emphasise that my time as Chairman will be a short tenure. Ideally, I will be looking to recruit, either from the current Board or outside the club, a figurehead to act as Chairman for the longer term. This individual would be of sound business and football mind and there is an opportunity now for any person to approach myself or the club about the role.
In the short-term, I have managed ensure the club is in the right hands and can move forward from here. I am committed, along with new Board member, Mark Serrell, to alleviating some significant outstanding debt which will need to be paid within the next few weeks.
The decisions taken last night have enabled the club to move into a period of breathing space. However, there still remains a debt situation that is not sustainable without the help not only of the club's Board and staff, but also the general public and our loyal supporters.
We will work together to bring about a happier and healthier long-term future for Kidderminster Harriers Football Club.
There will be no further comment from the club or myself until after the weekend.
With tonight's match at Southport in mind, football must be our primary focus and it is vital that the playing squad are allowed to concentrate solely on their efforts.
