Kidderminster Harriers have signed non-contract terms with Tipton Town striker Gurjit Singh ahead of a move to the Vanarama Conference club at the end of the season.

Singh will be training with Harriers during the remainder of the season.

However, he will continue to play for Tipton as they fight relegation from the Midland League Premier Division.

The 24-year-old joined Tipton in January, after scoring 21 goals in twenty-five games for Smethwick Rangers.

He has scored 6 goals in nine games since making the switch to Tipton.

Manager Gary Whild said: “Gaz has signed non-contract with us and will train with us as an introduction to full-time football to help and improve him.

“All being well, he will link up with us at the end of this season and for the next pre-season.

“But at this moment in time, his commitment is to Tipton Town and he is focused on helping them.

“He is a talented lad who could replicate what many other players have done here – the club think he has the ability to develop and improve.

“We would like to thank Tipton and their manager Nick Pugh.”

Singh said: “It’s been crazy – I was playing in Division Two of the West Midlands Regional League two seasons ago.

“I went into the Premier Division with Smethwick and started the season there, before moving up further in the pyramid to join Tipton in January.

“I’d been there for about a month and a half when all of a sudden this opportunity came up.

“A few teams had been coming to watch me on Saturdays; Gary Whild must have heard about me and spoke to Nick Pugh.

“I came to Aggborough on Thursday to sign the forms and I will be in training on Monday, so I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of the lads.

“My strengths are that I can score goals and beat players using my movement.

“Looking back three or four years ago, I never thought I would get this opportunity.

“But a couple of seasons ago I really started to work on my fitness and improving and elevate my game from there.

“The gaffer is a good guy who knows his football.

“It’s well-known that he has found and developed players who have gone on to play in the Football League.

“My aim now is to try and earn a contract here and get into full-time football – that’s the dream.”
