BOSS Neil MacFarlane has hailed the arrival of Northern Ireland U21 international defender Ryan Johnson at Aggborough.

The youngster joined on loan from League 2 side Stevenage this week and will stay at Aggborough until the New Year at least.

A left footed central defender, Johnson will, says the manager, bring a real balance to the Harriers squad – MacFarlane delighted with what he saw and heard when he met with the player recently.

The gaffer told the official website: “Ryan is a real specimen – a big, strapping lad who has a lot of really, really good attributes.

“I see him bringing a balance to the team defensively as he’s left footed.

“We’ve talked about the way the club has gone about it in the last couple of years: when you have that balance it really allows you to play, so hopefully he’ll be great for us.”

Welcome to Aggborough, Ryan Johnson!
