There is some honour left in football
Despite Kidderminster Harriers losing the first 5 matches of last season and drawing their next 5, the Club and Supporters remained convinced they had the right Manager. They finished the Football Conference season in 2nd place.
With their Manager recognised now as being the best in non league football, it was no surprise that mega-bucks Forest Green Rovers, who sacked their manager this season, tried to prise away the Manager with an offer of more money for him and the playing staff. The Harriers' Manager spoke to FGR but admitted his heart was still at the Harriers and thus he stayed.
It's nice to see a club support its manager despite a dreadful start to a season and for a Manager to repay that support by turning down more money to stay with the club.
