Deadline Day Sees Two Loans

Harriers moved to strengthen the squad for the busy Christmas schedule with two loan signings from.

Coming in are midfielder Mitchell McPike from Premiership Birmingham city and striker Craig Lindfield from League Two Accrington Stanley.

Mitchell, 19, is the brother of James McPike who was amongst Harriers' pre-season trialists; he has come through the ranks at Birmingham but has yet to force his way into the first team.

Lindfield, 22, began his career as an eight-year-old in the academy at Liverpool; he worked his way up to the reserves and picked up FA Youth Cup winners medals on the way but didn't make the final breakthrough into the first team.  He had loan spells at Notts County, Chester City and AFC Bournemouth, scoring twice in a a combined 16 appearances, before leaving Anfield to join Accrington.  In a year with Stanley he scored twice in twenty games before moving to Macclesfield town in January of this year for whom he scored twice in 18 games.  He returned to Accrington this summer but hasn't been able to force himself into the team on a regular basis and has made just eight appearances, six of which were from the bench, and scored once.

Both players will be with the Harriers until the start of January and would have featured in the squad for the trip to Barrow had it not been postponed.
