Harriers have completed another major signing for the future with the acquisition of midfielder Jim Kellermann.
Jim has established himself as a player in non-league football with a two-year spell at Aldershot Town, while also spending last season on loan at AFC Fylde.
In truth Jim is a hometown boy, having lived in Kidderminster from an early age and having attended matches at Aggborough back in the club’s Football League days.
A former Kidderminster Lions and Stourport Swifts player as a junior, he was snapped up by Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he spent six years before his move to the Shots.
After leaving The Recreation Ground, he journeyed to Scotland to sign for St Mirren but, with first team opportunities limited, signed for Fylde in August 2018.

The 24-year-old actually left St Mirren back in October of last year, from which point he has been involved with the squad at Aggborough, rehabbing from a problematic shoulder injury. Over the course of the last few months, he’s reached full fitness and trained fully with the squad, with boss Russ Penn making the securing of his signature a priority.
With international clearance in the bag, Kellermann has signed a contract with Harriers until the end of next season and becomes immediately available to Penn ahead of this weekend’s trip to Leamington – though all parties have admitted his return to competitive action will be a gradual one.
Welcome to Aggborough, Jim – we’re delighted to have you!
