Kidderminster Harriers have made their first new signing of the summer by bringing back their former defender Luke Jones from Forest Green Rovers.

Jones, who spent the 2008/09 season at Aggborough after a successful loan spell from Shrewbury during the previous campaign, has returned to the club on a one-year contract.

The 24-year-old turned down a new deal to make the move, with Forest Green desperate for their Player of the Year and captain to stay after the team escaped relegation from the Blue Square Premier.

But Jones has now opted to move on after a season at the New Lawn, his second club since his release from Aggborough for financial reasons, initially joining Mansfield for a year.

Harriers manager Steve Burr set up the deal before leaving to join up with the England C team this week, who face Portugal in the International Challenge Trophy final at Northampton's Sixfields Stadium tonight.

Burr serves as assistant to national boss Paul Fairclough and three of his club men are in tonight's 16-man squad with Jack Byrne, Lee Vaughan and new-boy Matthew Blair all involved.

The side has been decimated by a raft of players pulling out to compete in the Blue Square Premier play-offs, to face what is pratically a Portugal under-23 team.
