Kidderminster Harriers sign York winger Danny Pilkington

Danny Pilkington

Kidderminster Harriers have made their second signing of the summer by bringing in winger Danny Pilkington following his release by York City.

The Blackburn-born 22-year-old younger brother of Norwich City winger Anthony Pilkington has signed a one-year contract at Aggborough.

Pilkington played non-league football in his native North West for Atherton Collieries, Kendal Town and Chorley.

He then got his chance in the Football League with Stockport County in 2008.

After being released by County following their relegation to the Conference, the versatile winger, who can play on either flank, joined York City last summer.

He made 18 appearances for the Minstermen, but did not figure in their triumph in the Blue Square Bet Premier play-offs.

Pilkington's arrival, in the wake of Hednesford Town defender Cheyenne Dunkley, offsets Harriers' loss of Nick Wright and Luke Jones to Mansfield.

Harriers have also let winger Dave Hankin go to Chester, while centre-half Tom Marshall is expected to leave too.
