Kidderminster Harriers manager John Eustace leaves club to become Steve McClaren’s assistant manager at Queens Park Rangers

John Eustace has left National League North side Kidderminster Harriers to become Steve McClaren’s assistant manager at Queens Park Rangers.

The 38-year-old will team up with the former England chief after he was named manager there last week.

Eustace arrived at Harriers a little over two years ago, transforming the team’s style of play and has overseen two memorable campaigns, both in which the team have made the play-offs in National League North and the First Round proper of the FA Cup.

Chairman Colin Gordon said: “I said when we appointed John that he was a remarkable coach who would go on to have a terrific career in this side of the game so the fact he has been sounded out by such an established manager and a huge club is no surprise.

“Steve McClaren knew John well as a player but believes he’s also one of the finest young coaches he’s come across and was determined that he be part of things at QPR – quite simply it’s the ethos of this club that we won’t stand between hard-working, ambitious people and those kinds of opportunities.”
