Harriers boss Steve Burr has extra money in his playing budget

Kidderminster Harriers have signed former Stockport County midfielder James Vincent on a one-year deal.

The 21-year-old was at Edgeley Park since the age of eight and made his first-team debut in 2008.

He played 20 times for the Hatters last season but was released after Stockport were relegated from the Football League.

Glossop-born Vincent made more than 80 first-team appearances during his time at Edgeley Park.

Meanwhile, Harriers have confirmed they have come to an amicable agreement with York City over winger Matty Blair's move to the Minstermen.

As Blair was out of contract at Aggborough he was free to move but because he was under 24 Harriers were entitled to compensation.

Kidderminster chairman Mark Serrell said because the clubs had come to agreement there would be no need for the matter to go to a tribunal.

"As this is a compensation package rather than a transfer fee we will keep its exact contents confidential at this stage," he said.

"I would assure all Kidderminster supporters that we are to receive a sum almost immediately and that this will be handed straight to [manager] Steve Burr for his playing budget."
