Experienced defender Kelvin Langmead has joined Vanarama National league club Kidderminster Harriers on a season-long loan from National League South side Ebbsfleet United.
Langmead, who has played almost his entire career in the Football League, spent a short spell with the Fleet having left Northampton Town where he’d played more than 100 games and became a firm favourite with the Cobblers faithful.
A commanding central defender standing 6`1”, Langmead actually began his career as a striker, spending a short spell at Aggborough on loan from Preston North End in 2004.
Between 2004 and 2010 he played the best part of 300 games for Shrewsbury Town where he took the captain’s armband and was regularly amongst the end-of-season awards. His form there earned him a move to Peterborough United before his time at Northampton.
The 30 year-old spent the latter half of last season with Ebbsfleet but will spend the entire forthcoming campaign with Harriers, having permission to play in all league and cup competitions.
