The deal is part of a larger partnership between the two clubs which could also see Wolves’ youngsters sent on loan to Aggborough.

A huge boost for Harriers, the news is a blow to their National League North rivals AFC Telford, who had hosted Wolves’ reserve and youth teams for the past 16 years.

Wolves head of academy Scott Sellars said: “We’ve been impressed with the facilities in place at Kidderminster and the direction of the club, and we’ve quickly established a good working relationship.

“That is pivotal to the development of our young players and, in addition, it has never been more important for clubs to work together and support each other, and that’s what we’re looking forward to doing with Kidderminster next season.”

Harriers chief executive Neil Male said: “This has been a major priority for us and I’m delighted to have things over the line. I feel it is important for our supporters to know that this is an agreement that will have massive benefit for us as a football club at all levels.

“The biggest pull for us was them wanting to have a partnership that works both ways and helps players, staff and stakeholders both here and for Wolves, rather than just needing a place to play matches.

“They have been a pleasure to deal with and I am excited about the season ahead with them.”
