SOURCES close to the Standard indicate Redditch United boss Liam McDonald is a contender for the managerial position at National League outfit Kidderminster Harriers.

Rock-bottom Harriers are currently being managed by former football agent Colin Gordon following the recent departure of ex-Redditch boss Gary Whild and, after former England keeper Tim Flowers declined the chance to take the Aggborough hotseat, McDonald is believed to be in the frame.

McDonald’s impressive work at the Valley Stadium has not gone unnoticed having guided the Reds to a sixth placed finish last season as they were pipped at the post in the race for a Southern League Premier Division play-off place, whilst he has also played a key role in developing the careers of Jermaine Hylton, Sam Hornby and Omari Sterling-James as they secured moves to Football League clubs.

There is recent history between United and Harriers, with the latter having taken Redditch stars Jamie Spencer, Calvin Dinsley and Jordan Jones to Aggborough in the past 12 months.

United are currently flying high in third place having secured a fifth successive league victory on Tuesday with a 2-0 success at Slough Town.
