Kidderminster Harries have confirmed the appointment of Mark Yates as manager until the end of the season.
Yates is no stranger to Aggborough having twice played for the club and also managed the team between 2006 and 2009.
The 49-year-old has taken charge of the likes of Cheltenham, Crawley, Macclesfield and Solihull Moors since leaving the managerial post at Kiddy.
Jimmy O’Connor and Russ Penn, having assisted with team management in the last few weeks, will continue to aid Mark during the run-in.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Yates said, “This is a proper football club and hopefully we can finish the season properly.
“We are where we are, and I can’t do anything about the last 28 games, but I’ve come into a club that’s two points outside the play-offs.
“Teams have got a game in hand perhaps, but we’ve got 14 games to try and, ultimately, get in amongst it.
“There are a lot of good players here and it is a club close to my heart – I want to come in and put my stamp on it for the remainder of the season and we’ll see what happens.”
Following last weekend’s defeat at home to Alfreton, Kiddy are currently sitting in 9th position in the National League North but are still just two points adrift of the play-off places.
