Former Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has today been appointed as the new manager of Kidderminster Harriers Football Club.
Thorn first joined City as chief scout, bringing stars such as Danny Fox, Scott Dann and Aron Gunnarsson to The Ricoh Arena before taking the managerial hot-seat, initially as caretaker following the departure of Aidy Boothroyd.
Following an impressive ten-game caretaker spell, Thorn was appointed permanently, however in his first full season in charge City suffered relegation from The Championship to League One.
Thorn has most recently been working for the FA assisting Roy Hodgson’s scouting team ahead of the World Cup this summer but he has now signed a one-year rolling contract with The Harriers.
“I have been most impressed by all aspects of the Club, and the Board share my vision when it comes to what our short and longer-term goals are and how we can achieve them.
“I’m extremely confident in my own strengths, particularly when it comes to man management and player recruitment, and allied with what I believe is an excellent coaching staff here at Kidderminster I am very excited at the challenges that lie ahead and look forward to starting straight away this weekend against Salisbury.”
