Aman Verma has left Corby Town to sign for Skrill Premier outfit Kidderminster Harriers.

The midfielder joined the Steelmen on a permanent basis at the start of the year, having enjoyed a successful loan stint from Stockport County.

He scored his seventh goal in Corby colours during Saturday’s 4-3 home defeat to Stourbridge in the Calor League Premier Division at Steel Park.

Steelmen joint-boss Tommy Wright revealed Verma had agreed to join Kidderminster last week but still featured at the weekend.

Corby have been hit by off-field problems in recent weeks, which resulted in there being a delay in players wages and while there still remains hints of issues behind the scenes, Wright remains hopeful they can keep the majority of the squad together as they now prepare to host Poole Town on Wednesday night.

Wright said: “Aman is expected to sign for Kidderminster this morning and he goes with our blessing. He agreed to go last week, so full credit to him for playing on Saturday against Stourbridge and putting in a good personal performance to sign off in the right way.

“Of course we are extremely disappointed to be losing him, as he will be a big miss for us both on and off the pitch. He is an extremely popular figure in our dressing room.

“However, you cannot stand in the way of players who are progressing up the football ladder and the fact that he is joining a side in the Conference Premier who are still capable of making the play-offs speaks volumes for his ability as a footballer.

“We would all like to wish him well at Kiddy and hope it works out for him, but if not then we will certainly want his signature again at Corby Town.

“Despite the off field issues, myself and Stan are confident that we can keep the rest of this team together. We have a great bunch and want to continue to build.”
