Rod Brown named new Harriers chairman

Rod Brown has been unveiled as Kidderminster Harriers' new chairman.


Brown, who was appointed vice-chairman at Aggborough last month, will now step up following Ken Rae's dramatic departure on Friday.

Rae, together with fellow directors Gino Ruffinato and John Davies, resigned in the face of pressure from the cash-strapped club's major shareholders.

A former manager at both Redditch United and Stourport Swifts, Brown was brought in to evaluate Harriers' finances and admitted last week the club was in "disarray."

A statement on the club's website read: "(Brown) has spent the last five or six weeks studying all the aspects of the club's management structure and current financial position.

"He has identified several areas where he believes the club can be improved to its financial benefit and to the benefit of the loyal supporters, players and staff.

"Rod's background includes the running of several businesses both past and present, mainly within the publishing industry.

"He also brings 25 years experience of football management and is, therefore, considered a great asset to Harriers."
