Kidderminster Harriers chairman Colin Gordon hails work to re-sign Elton Ngwatala
Kidderminster Harriers chairman Colin Gordon has praised boss John Eustace for managing to persuade Elton Ngwatala to sign fresh terms for this season.
The Aggborough outfit said in June the 24-year-old former PSG midfielder would be signing with a League One club, but he has penned a new one-year contract at the National League North side.
He is set to be involved in the campaign opener against Chorley at home on Saturday (kick-off 3pm), and Gordon said: “That’s credit to the manager, he didn’t give up on it at all.
“They have a great relationship and Elton has got the utmost respect for the manager. John managed to persuade him to come and train, then play a game, and fortunately for us he has decided to join permanently.”
Harriers will be looking to avenge their play-off semi-final defeat to Chorley last season.
On how they are looking going into the new term, Gordon said: “”It’s difficult to say where we are.
“We won’t know what level we are at until Chorley turn up, I don’t think
“We are still a work in progress. We are quietly confident that we can more than compete, play our way.
“But we don’t know how that is going to turn out on Saturday.”
Gordon then went on to say there are ‘some very exciting things’ coming up for the club.
He added: “”We are looking at partners we want to go with for the future.
“There are some very exciting things, not so far around the corner now.
“We have got one main focus at the moment and we are putting all our efforts into that – and that is to secure the financial wellbeing of the football club for the foreseeable future. That’s what we need to be able to do.
“The announcements we will make in a short space of time will show people that we have been really working hard to try and secure the future of the football club.”
“It’s vague, but people have got to know we are not just sitting here and kicking our heels.
“We really desperately want this football club to succeed.
