Kidderminster Harriers have brought back former England goalkeeper Tim Flowers to rejoin the coaching staff.

Flowers, 48, will become part of the backroom team at Aggborough for a third time, having initially been brought in as goalkeeping coach by then Harriers manager Steve Burr in February 2010.

Following the sacking of Burr and Andy Thorn inside two months, Gary Whild brought Flowers back in March 2014.

He then quit two months later to work for Stuart Pearce at Nottingham Forest.

Have gloves, will travel - the clubs where Tim Flowers has played and worked
Tim Flowers was a Premier League winner with Blackburn Rovers in 1994-95, going on to make more than 500 career appearances, as well as winning 11 England caps, in a career that started with Wolves in 1984 and also took in Southampton and Leicester City, as well as spells on loan at Swindon Town, Coventry City, Stockport County and Manchester City.
Since turning to coaching, he has also worked at Leicester City, Manchester City, Coventry City, Queens Park Rangers, Northampton Town, Hull City, Stafford Rangers, Harriers and Forest.

But Flowers left the City Ground on 2 February - the day after Pearce was sacked.

"We're delighted to have Tim back involved in a hands-on way at the club," said boss Whild, who already has former Harriers defender Mark Creighton as his assistant manager at the Conference club.

"It goes without saying that someone of Tim's stature, experience and knowledge of this level of the game is second to none. He is someone I have a very high regard for.

"Without embarrassing Tim, he certainly isn't coming here to change his life in terms of financial gain. It's about doing what he wants to do and being involved in football so, in that respect, it is a bit of a coup for us."
