KEITH Lowe can’t wait to get cracking on pre-season games as Harriers travel to Evesham United on Saturday lunchtime.

After a young group represented Harriers admirably at Stourport in midweek, Russ Penn will lead his charges into action for the first time against United.

Lowe told the club’s YouTube channel that it’s the part every player looks forward to – and hailed the general fitness and condition of the squad at Aggborough.

“It’s kind of the moment everyone’s been waiting for really,” he said of the game.

“You get the majority of the running out the way before the first game and can happily start kicking some footballs around!

“You can’t come back and get fit during pre-season, as it was 15-20 years ago when I was starting out.

“The lads have come back flying and that’s of benefit to everybody.

“It has actually helped us get the balls out a little earlier as the staff know all the lads have a good base of fitness already, so we can start working on things straight away.”

Admission at Evesham on Saturday is pay on the gate at £10 adults and £7 concessions.

Don’t forget, it’s an early kick off of 12:30pm.

We’ll have team news on social media followed by live updates throughout the match, along with a report and reaction after.
