HEREFORD FC midfield says he has made an extremely tough decision about his future at the Edgar Street club.

The 25-year-old, who joined Hereford in 2018, said he was at the stage of his career where he needed to play full-time football, with Josh Gowling side still part-time.

He said that it was after a lot of thought and consideration, he had made the "extremely tough decision" to leave Hereford FC.

It has now been confirmed he's signed a one-year contract at National League North rivals Kidderminster Harriers.

He said: "I'm at a stage now in my career where I feel that in order to kick on, I need to be back playing football full-time.

"I would like to thank the Gaffer [Josh Gowling], Burry [Steve Burr, assistant manager] and all the other staff for everything they have done for me over the last few years and also thank all of the fans who
have supported me throughout.

"I've had some incredible memories that I won't forget and the club will always hold a special place in my heart."

His eye-catching displays have resulted in plenty of attention from elsewhere, Kidderminster Harriers said, but the club and manager Russ Penn "moved quickly to snap him up".

“I am delighted because he is a good player,” Penn said of his newest recruit.

“He fits in how we play and what we do, and he’s a great age.

“I think the fans will like his style of play as he’s an attacking player that goes with what with we’ve got.

“The way of his words when he came to see me and Jim last week just sold him to us. Every party was happy, and he couldn’t be signed quickly enough.”

Owen-Evans has penned a one-year contract at Aggborough, subject to FA and National League confirmation.
