Atkins joins Kidderminster on loan


Recommended Posts

Derby County goalkeeper Ross Atkins has today joined Blue Square Premier side Kidderminster Harriers on a month's loan.

The 20-year-old former England Youth international returned to Pride Park earlier this week after a similar loan spell at League Two Burton Albion, where he acted as cover on the bench and failed to make an appearance.

He is however set to gain first-team match experience, as he did with Southport last season, during this loan spell.

Kidderminster sit 9th in the Blue Square Premier table and are still in with a shout of making the playoffs and Atkins could make his debut in Saturday's FA Trophy tie with Oxford United.

Goalkeeper Ross Atkins has been recalled from his loan spell at Kidderminster Harriers.

The 20-year-old has spent the last two months with the Blue Square Premier side, gaining valuable first-team experience.

Atkins made 13 appearances for the Harriers and played in both FA Trophy Semi-Finals matches against Stevenage Borough.

With first-choice goalkeeper Stephen Bywater ruled out of Derby's final two matches of the season with a rib injury Atkins will act as back-up to Saul Deeney.

The Academy graduate is yet to make his Derby County debut but has been regular for the reserves this season.
