FORMER Forest Green striker Reece Styche has joined Skrill Premier rivals Kidderminster Harriers on a two-year contract.

Styche,25, who is also a Gibraltar international, left Rovers in January and spent the second half of the season with League Two  side Wycombe Wanderers.

He told harriers.co.uk: “This is a club with an ambition to be in the Football League and after three months in LeagueTwo it’s quite clear to me that there is very little difference between the two levels.

“I believe we’ve got what it takes to get ourselves promoted and hold our own.

“Kidderminster is a club on the up and I know they have always played football in the right way and that makes this a perfect move for me.”

He  joined Forest Green from Chasetown in January 2010, having risen through the non-League pyramid with Hednesford Town and Shepshed Dynamo.

He marked his debut with two goals as a substitute at Hayes and Yeading United and the following season was persuaded by former boss David Hockaday to give up plumbing in order to turn professional.

Rovers rejected two bids from Luton Town for Styche’s services in September 2011 and he signed a new three-year contract.

Successive knee injuries have severely limited his availability since the 2011/12 campaign, yet he has an impressive overall scoring record of 37 goals in 77 starts.
