Kiddy on restricted budget

Kidderminster Harriers enjoyed a spell in the Football League but now they are having to operate on a restricted budget.  They are hoping that their prudent approach will pay off in the longer run, but season ticket sales have fallen over the summer, although this could have as much to do with the economic climate as their strategy.   They also hope that some new investors may come in.

Kidderminster may suffer a bit from being on the edge of a major conurbation where there are four Premiership teams to choose from.   Of course, there is never an ideal location for a non-league club.  Clubs like Forest Green and Rushden and Diamonds suffer from a lack of chimeny pots in the vicinity of their ground.   Perhaps an ideal situation is a ‘stand alone’ town without a Premiership or football league club in the vicinity, but Salisbury would qualify and the town seems to lack a football heritage or culture.
