Harriers hope for Adam Proudlock

Former Wolves golden boy Adam Proudlock is hoping to join Kidderminster Harriers for training as he looks to rescue his career from the footballing scrapheap.

Former Wolves golden boy Adam Proudlock is hoping to join Kidderminster Harriers for training as he looks to rescue his career from the footballing scrapheap.

The striker is desperate to find a club after his release from Grimsby in the summer, who paid him up with a year left on his deal after their relegation from the Football League.

The only firm offers the 29-year-old has received are from the part-time game, with ex-Wolves team-mate Tony Dinning ambitiously trying to sign him for Midland Alliance club Bridgnorth and Stafford Rangers offering him a game in the Blue Square North last week when they had a striking crisis.

Proudlock turned them both down to avoid the chance of picking up an injury, which could put any trial or move to a full-time club in jepoardy.

He is not match fit in any case, having trained on his own for most of the summer, with a brief spell in Hungary with Ferencvaros his only pre-season training so far.

But now the former Sheffield Wednesday and Ipswich striker - who played 84 times for first club Wolves between 1998 to 2003 - is hoping Harriers captain Keith Briggs, a former team-mate at Stockport, can convince manager Steve Burr to allow him to get fit at Aggborough.

It wouldn't be a trial as such, more for the player than the club, but such an agreement has seen the likes of Jeff Kenna and Stefan Moore stay on at Aggborough in recent years.

And Proudlock, who has only just got married and has a young son, is hoping for the chance to get his career back on track.

He said: "I am holding out as long as possible to see what I can get, but we will have to see really. It's hard, at the minute I have got to keep myself fit and hope that I get a phone call.

"It's not drastic yet but my money is not going to last forever, so if nothing comes up I will have to look to ply my trade in another profession.

"Hopefully Kidderminster can help me out, 'Briggsy' was going to see what he can do, they are a good club and should be in the Football League really.

"I need the fitness more than anything, it's OK working by yourself and playing five-a-side with your mates, but it's nothing like training professionally."
