Kidderminster Harriers defender Jamie Grimes has signed a one-year contract with the Conference Premier club.
The Nottingham-born 6ft 4ins centre-back, who joined on non-contract terms in March, is yet to make his debut.
But the 22-year-old has done enough to be rewarded with a new deal after impressing in pre-season.
Harriers have also signed young Academy star Tyrone Williams on his first professional contract.
Grimes will start the new season as cover for Kidderminster's first-choice centre-back partnership of Cheyenne Dunkley and Josh Gowling.
He has played part-time for Redditch and last season's Blue Square Bet North promotion-chasers Brackley Town since his release by Swansea City in 2011.
