Kidderminster Harriers can confirm that John Eustace has today left the club to take up a coaching role at Championship side Queens Park Rangers.

The 38-year-old will become Steve McClaren’s assistant manager after the former England chief was named Manager there last week.

Arriving here at Harriers a little over two years ago, Eustace transformed the team’s style of play and has overseen two memorable campaigns, both in which the team have made the play-offs in National League North and the First Round proper of the FA Cup.

Chairman Colin Gordon said: “I said when we appointed John that he was a remarkable coach who would go on to have a terrific career in this side of the game so the fact he has been sounded out by such an established manager and a huge club is no surprise.

“Steve McClaren knew John well as a player but believes he’s also one of the finest young coaches he’s come across and was determined that he be part of things at QPR – quite simply it’s the ethos of this club that we won’t stand between hard-working, ambitious people and those kinds of opportunities.”

We’d like to thank John Eustace for his efforts during an entertaining two years at the helm at Aggborough and wish him all the very best for the future.

Following John’s agreement to join QPR the club have actively identified targets for a new manager and hope to be able to make a positive announcement shortly.
