Kidderminster Harriers have been recognised as the top developer of footballing talent in a recent wide-ranging study.
Harriers have made no secret of their desire to offer unrivalled footballing and educational opportunities to young people in line with its wider Mission Statement.
Some of that work has now been recognised in a study by Scout 7, part of Opta Pro, which detailed movement from non-league to the Football League, Premier League and beyond.
It revealed that, since 2014, no club has seen more of its talent secure move to Premier League and EFL clubs than Harriers with players making the step up from Aggborough Stadium to bigger stages, after making a big impression here in Worcestershire – that excluding the likes of Elton Ngwatala who also moved into top-flight football in Scotland.
The club believes that this is a trend only set to continue as its expanding educational programmes continue to flourish. More players than ever before will be part of the club’s Youth, Academy and Degree programmes in 2018/19, from our U9s at Development League level all the way through to U23 Foundation Degree students and the first team.
Chairman Colin Gordon explained more about the study and its implications in an interview with our Soundcloud channel, which you can hear by pressing play below.
