Kidderminster's efforts at signing loan players have been helped hugely by the contacts of coach Tim Flowers, says assistant manager Mark Creighton.

The 48-year-old former England goalkeeper became part of the backroom staff at the National League club for a third time in June.

"The people Tim doesn't know aren't worth knowing," Creighton told BBC Hereford and Worcester.

"Tim's been great with that and great on the training ground."

Harriers' 2014-15 campaign was severely undermined by serious financial problems, which saw many of their best players moved off the wage bill.

Boardroom changes and a playing budget reduced by 50% have followed the club's worst league position in 17 years.

Although more senior players have left, boss Gary Whild has brought in four new players this summer.

Kidderminster are being helped by their good relationships with Premier League neighbours West Bromwich Albion, who have loaned them goalkeeper Alex Palmer, and Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett as they look to secure further additions.

"We haven't got any money and we're at the stage where we're asking for favours," Creighton added. "Gary has said he'll help us out, he wants his young players to join in at National League level.

"He knows this is where he needs to bed his players in and Albion have already helped us with Alex Palmer in goal. We're blessed with our position, geographically, to have big clubs around us."
