Jared Hodgkis is contracted to Vanarama Conference club Kidderminster Harriers next season after triggering an appearance-based contract extension.
The versatile and experienced defender was a 2014 summer signing for Harriers.
Stafford-born, Hodgkiss began his career with Wolves and West Bromwich Albion – featuring under Tony Mowbray in the Championship for the Baggies.
A switch to Aggborough moved him back closer to home after a number of successful seasons with Forest Green Rovers in the Conference.
Signing there in 2009, he went on to make almost 170 appearances for the New Lawn outfit, including a spell as skipper.
Established as one of the division’s strongest full-backs, Hodgkiss is most comfortable playing on the right but can also feature on the left.
‘Yaz,’ as he is known in the dressing room, has stood out as one of Harriers’ most consistent performers this season and was the club’s big winner at the end of season awards as he was named player of the season by manager Gary Whild and was also the fans’ and his team-mates’ choice.
