We look ahead to this evenings trip to AggboroughIt's pre-season friendly time again and tonight’s game against Kidderminster is our first away friendly of the closed season. Harriers had a pretty decent start to last season and were in the top six at Christmas, but the tail end of the season was not as good as the first half and they had dropped to 16th by the end of the season. Harriers have played a few pre-season games and recently locked horns with Birmingham City. They managed to get a better result from their friendly with the Blues than we did, drawing 1-1with a goal from trialist Adam Dawson.
We meet again
Currently on loan from Ebbsfleet, Kelvin Langmead is a player that many of us will remember fondly. He started off as a striker, signed by Gary Peters in 2004 but was converted into a central defender after Peters noticed his heading ability. Peters had signed Langmead from his old club Preston, where he had been loaned out to three clubs before moving to Shrewsbury on loan and was signed as a permanent player. All told, Kelvin made over 250 appearances for us from before moving to Peterborough. In his two seasons with Posh, he didn't really hold down a regular place in the team after Gary Johnson left, ending up with Northampton. Langmead followed him to the Cobblers and made over 50 appearances before moving to Ebbsfleet in 2015, making nine appearances. He's currently on loan with Kidderminster for the second time in his career having been loaned out as a striker from Preston early in his career.
It would be nice to see us get a win in this one as we've not won a pre-season friendly so far this close season. The teams we have played so far have been a division above us and we've looked pretty good in comparison, so the chances of a win should be good.
