Kidderminster Harriers have bolstered their goalkeeping ranks with the capture of former England under-17 international Dean Lyness.

Kidderminster Harriers have bolstered their goalkeeping ranks with the capture of former England under-17 international Dean Lyness.

The 19-year-old has signed a one-year deal after his release from Scottish Premier League club Hearts, where he has spent the last two seasons.

Lyness is Birmingham born and bred and came through the youth ranks of his hometown club, even making the substitutes bench for Blues in Championship fixtures.

The teenager was also a squad player at Hearts but failed to break through to the starting line-up and has still yet to make a competitive appearance.

Now Lyness faces another stiff challenge for first-team football at Aggborough in a two-way fight with Danny Lewis, last season's Player of the Year.

Harriers boss Steve Burr had been actively seeking competition for his No 1, who signed a new two-year deal in March, after releasing second choice Adam Stevens.
