Forsyth will need no introduction to Harriers fans as one of the most popular players in its history, with over 300 appearances under his belt in the 1980s and 1990s.

 

The 49-year old, who later went on to play for Birmingham City, Stoke City and Blackpool, has returned to assume an integral role at the club after discussions with Interim CEO Neil Male.

 

As director of football, Forsyth will be acting as the link between the first team and its academy and junior football operations. This will include ensuring all areas of the club support one another and that the academy and junior foundation have a clear presence within the local community.

 

In addition, he値l provide support to the first team management in regards to scouting and recruitment moving forward, analysing opposition and maintaining a network of contacts at all levels that can benefit the team and club as a whole.

 

Forsyth told https://harriers.co.uk: 的知 delighted to be back at a club I have such fondness for, and in such an important role as Director of Football. I would like to thank Neil, Jimmy and Russ for giving me this opportunity. I spoke to Neil on a number of occasions over the past couple of months and his determination to bring me here made this an offer I could not refuse. It is the area of football I have been involved in for the past 10 years and hopefully this will benefit the club moving forward.

 

的 will be overseeing the entire Academy and Junior sections of the club, assessing and developing the talent within those age groups. I値l also be setting up a scouting team that will support recruitment at the club, both at first team and Academy level. Through all of this, I知 looking forward to working closely with Russ and his coaching staff to make the strongest team possible to compete in National League North.
