AMARI Morgan-Smith says its his ‘duty’ to help Harriers back up into the National League following relegation last season.

The relentless striker put pen to paper on a new contract with the club late last week and is immediately setting his sights on big things in 2024-25.

He explained to he feels the weight of last season’s disappointment, and so was determined to make sure he was part of things for the campaign ahead.

He said: “Everyone knows my affinity with Kidderminster, and I wanted to get it sooner rather than later.

“I had a few offers from other National League clubs and clubs in our division, but it would have taken a lot for me to change destinations!

“I think my duty now, and one of my aims, is to get the club back straight back where we belong, and hopefully we can do it straight away.

“I have a duty because, as players, we got relegated as a football club and my responsibility is in doing the best I can to get the club promoted by any means necessary.”

Hard work continues to build and shape Phil Brown’s new squad.

Morgan-Smith says the boss, Neil McDonald and Dean Holdsworth all played a part in tying him down, and are ensuring the club ‘means business.’

Of the boss, the former Cheltenham man commented: “He, Macca and Dean were a big part in getting me over the line and knowing where we want to go.

“To get me, Hemmo and Dibbs over the line and to try and attract new players, it shows we mean business.

“The club of this stature shouldn’t be looking for any less than getting promoted so I am excited for the new season.

“I am so thankful for all of the fans’ hard work last season. We were sorry we couldn’t do it, but we want to put it right now.”
