HARRIERS finally began pre-season training today, with boss Russ Penn welcoming a new look management team and squad of players.

This afternoon we can give you the full run-down of all  the individuals charged with keeping the team ticking over throughout the 2020/21 campaign.

Here’s a look at the Harriers management!

Russ Penn – Manager

The boss, the gaffer, the Manager; former Harriers midfielder Russ Penn needs little introduction to the Aggborough faithful. Our leader, Russ took the job as permanent manager back in the summer.

Jimmy O’Connor – Assistant Manager

Jimmy has been by the gaffer’s side for some time now, stepping up not only in previous seasons to assist with coaching the side, but as number two to Penn at the tail end of last season. The vastly-experienced former Walsall and Doncaster player also took up his role in the close season.

Dan Ludlow – Strength & Conditioning Coach

Dan has worked locally in the fitness and sports science industry for the last several years, and knows the club very well. The 32-year-old was part of the youth set-up at Aggborough and was also a registered first team player here before going on to have his own career in non-league.

Lee Evans – Goalkeeping Coach

An experienced goalkeeper and coach, UEFA B licensed coach Lee Evans joins Harriers after five years as Goalkeeping Coach at Tamworth. Previously playing for the likes of Stafford Rangers, AFC Telford United and Chasetown, the now 37 year old joins Harriers for the 2020/21 season.

Cameron Smith – Physiotherapist

Joining Harriers for the 2020/21 season is former Port Vale First Team Assistant Physio and Academy Sports Therapist Cameron Smith. Cameron is a University of Salford Graduate in Sports Rehabilitation.

Reiss Aston – Performance Analyst

A Sports Coaching and Development degree graduate at Edge Hill University, Reiss Aston is already familiar with Harriers having held the U23s Performance Analyst position during the 2019/20 season, but will now work with Harriers’ First Team during 2020/21.

Keep an eye on social media and the club website over the coming days as we bring you all the content ahead of the start of a new season!

We’d like to thank all of those who’ve moved on to new challenges and welcome each of the new faces to Aggborough – we’re HarriersTogether, bring on the new season!
