Love the kits Bantams! Can't wait to see who you sign!
well done sir, gl in L2
cfcmarkt, Stephen_G - Thank you guys, but the credit goes fully to Tallery, he made the kits and he's done a cracking job with them! :)

AaronHJFT96 - Thanks for the kind words Aaron, I thought I'd never be able to hack it but a bit of patience, reading a few stories and guides got me right in the mood. The ups and downs add to the excitement and ecstasy! Good luck with yours, if you document it I'll be sure to follow! :P

Josh_MU - Thanks Josh, Like I said all credit goes to Tallery. I'm useless at graphics as you already know ;) you're my banner guy and Tallerys my kit man! I think a few of the new signings will interest you!

Bosola - Cheers Bosola, It'll be tough but I think the squad plus a few additions will see us through!
Kidderminster Introduce 'FlexiCard’

Kidderminster managing director Ben Maguire has introduced a new flexicard system at Aggborough for the forthcoming season, a marketing technique recently used by Football League 1 side Bradford City.

What is a FlexiCard?

A FlexiCard is basically a membership card which allows supporters to reserve their favourite seat within the Aggborough Stadium while still giving them the choice of which games they do or do not wish to attend. Basically, after paying your initial FlexiCard membership, you only pay for the games you attend. And what's even better, you get your match tickets at half-price!

How do I buy my FlexiCard match tickets?

Supporters can buy their FlexiCard match tickets from either the Harriers' Ticket Office during the week or on a match-day, or via a valid match-day turnstile. All supporters need is their money to pay for their match-ticket and their FlexiCard as proof of membership. Any supporter wishing to pay for their ticket(s) by any means other the cash must do so from the Harriers' Ticket Office.

What games can I use my FlexiCard for?

FlexiCards are only in place for the Harriers' 23 home npower League 2 fixtures during the regular 2014/2015 season. FlexiCards cannot be used for any home Johnstone's Paint Trophy, Capital One Cup or F.A Cup with Budweiser ties.

Why were FlexiCards introduced?

Basically, if you can't come to every single Harriers' league game next season but you still want value for money - then the FlexiCard option for you!

The club identified towards the end of the 2013/2014 season that there are group of regular supporters for whom buying a Season Ticket does not make financial sense or their individual circumstances mean committing to a Season Ticket is not practical. This is where the 50/50 FlexiCard system came in. The FlexiCard allows supporters to reserve their seat in at the Aggborough Stadium for the 2014/2015 season - like a normal Season Ticket, but choose which games they want to pay to watch.

FlexiCard holders will be able to buy match tickets for individual games for their reserved seat for only half price (e.g £8.00 for an adult ticket) from a designated turnstile or at the Harriers Ticket Office.
The schemes’ main purpose is to try attract more fans in the area to come along and support the Harriers as they set off on their Football League adventure, order yours online today!
Great idea! Again, very nicely written, I need to get hold of a flexicard!
It's a great system to have, I just wrote it in the story to add a bit more of a story to the growth of the club etc. But it's worked an absolute treat for Bradford in League 1 and also when they was in League 2. They was getting 8500 season ticket holders yearly and with the flexicard there was an extra 2000-2500, so the crowds would be bumped up every so often, so I though I'd implement it on my story :P
a very good update mate!

Awards Ceremony: Results

Yesterday evening marked the Kidderminster Harriers’ annual awards ceremony, hosted by Technologic UK at the Aggborough Executive Suite in the stadium. A night that saw all the players and the staff all suited and booted with the mrs’ and the family’s come together to celebrate the achievements of the season.

There were a few awards up for grabs last night, such as:

  • Player of the Season
  • Players Player of the Season
  • Fans Player of the Season
  • Writers’ Player of the Season
  • Young Player of the Season
  • Goal of the Season

After a celebratory meal with the players and fans lucky enough to get tickets for the evening the award giving finally took place, first up was the Player of the Season as voted by the Staff at Kidderminster, the winner of this award went too...

Michael Gash

Michael had been in terrific form last season, and he had the goal scoring record to prove it. He managed to notch up a magnificent total of 24 goals in all competitions’ come the end, a great achievement by any striker to be able to score more than 20 in a season. Congratulations Michael!

The next award that was up for grabs was the Players Player of the Season, there was only one clear winner here...

Michael Coulson

The loanee has been in superb form this season, managing to create a handful of assists and score 27... YES 27 GOALS! He sweeped the voting, all votes from the players went to him apart from the one vote which Michael casted himself (due to not being able to vote for himself, but sure enough if he could of then he would of had every right too!) Congratulations to Coulson on his remarkable season here at Aggborough

The evenings third award was that of the Fans player of the Year, a poll that was up on the clubs official website, the fans had been voting in their numbers for the last week or so to be able to choose the winner of this award, and the winner of this award is...

Danny Lewis

The shot stopper has been in remarkable form all season, only conceding a total of 40 goals in 61 appearances last season, he finished as the league’s highest clean sheet scorer with a magnificent total of 21. Congratulations to Danny on his remarkable achievement.

The fourth award of the night was the Writers Player of the Season, this chosen by all the press and writers surrounding Kidderminster, and the player they have chosen as their winner this season is...

Santiago Aloi

The Argentine's terrific work has probably gone unnoticed this season, but credit to him. He has helped steady the ship in midfield and provided help to the defensive line when needed. He has had a great season so far this season and we appreciate his hard work so far. Congratulations Santiago!

The next award was the Young Player of the Year award, and award that was tightly contested by two players, but the eventual winner was...

Cheyenne Dunkley

The young centre-half has been played a pivotal part in the Harrier’s solid defence this season where they were able to notch up 21 clean sheets, credit to the rest of the defence and the goalkeeper but this young lad performed admirably at times. Congratulations Cheyenne!

And the final award of the night is the Goal of the Season, and the clear run out winner of this was without a doubt Lee Vaughan. The young fullback had a free kick just 5 yards into the oppositions half, he went to clip the ball forward and somehow it managed to find the top corner, the ball traveled such a distance it was unbelievable that it nestled in to the back of the net, whether it was luck or pure skill Vaughney won’t care because it’s bagged him the win tonight, and also the win on the day 1-0 against Luton in August! Congratulations Lee!
That's certainly an awesome goal to see! Good luck in League 2!
I need a FlexiCard! Great story here, love it! A Bantam's story is always on my shortlist, but where did you crash in the F.A. Cup and Trophy? Or is your next update on that :PP
AAN - Thanks Buddy :)

ASR-PSV - It certainly was mate, I couldn't beleive what I was seeing!

Pauker - Glad you're enjoying it Pauker, always great to know I have you on board with your inquisitive ways, and that update is coming up next with the review :P
2013/14: Season Reflection

As we all know the season has come to a close for another year, and it's time to look over some of the progress that has been made here at Aggborough. Starting of course with the League Table, as many of you already know we managed to win the Skrill Premier, a remarkable achievement for any team but even more so for this club. Our ambition was to hope for an outside chance of getting promotion, but we managed to go the full monty and get the title under our belt.

You can see the final league standings for the Skrill Premier season via the shortcut below:

Of course we can't forget the amazing progress we also made in this years FA Trophy, we were never even considered among the teams to win the cup, but we proved them all wrong by showing that they can never write this team off. The team made a fantastic go of it this year and we walked away with the ultimate prize, the Trophy at the end!

The results of the FA Trophy can be seen below:

And what football fanatic in the whole of England could forget Kidderminster's remarkable achievement in the FA Cup this season? The team were underdogs in every game they went into, and they still managed to upset the applecart and knock a few bigger teams out of the competition, but all things must come to an end, when the Harriers' crashed out in the 5th round to a very strong West Brom side. The whole team can be proud of what they have achieved this season!

The results of the FA Cup can be seen below:
Great FA Cup run! And a great season overall. :)
Really good season mate. Nice to win 2 trophies and a brilliant FA Cup run.
Josh_MU - I couldn't believe the cup run, we did unreal! and cheers big lad! :P

cfcmarkt - Thank you mate, the two trophies were nice to win and the FA cup run put the icing on the cake!
