Fans angry at Kidderminster player who was sent off for what he said to Chester defender

Fans have been left angry at a Kidderminster player who was sent off for what he said to a Chester defender during Tuesday night’s fixture.

The two sides came face to face in a National League North encounter which finish 2-1 to the Cheshire outfit at Aggborough Stadium.

The Blues’ Danny Elliott opened the scoring on the 22nd minute, finishing smartly from a cross sent into the area.

Shortly after, Ashley Hemmings was there at the far post to get an equaliser for the Harriers.

In the 38th minute, Amari Morgan-Smith was given his marching orders, leaving the Kidderminster Twitter admin confused it would see.

In the 56th minute, ex-Harrier Declan Weeks found the net from a tight angle, powering an effort in to make it 2-1 to the away side, which ended up being the winning goal.

Chester also went down to 10 men as Paddy Lacey flew in on Omari Sterling on the 63rd minute.


Kidderminster Harriers would like to acknowledge the circumstances of the sending off of striker Amari Morgan-Smith against Chester.

Amari was shown a red card during the first half for using offensive language.

The Club takes the nature of this offence extremely seriously and has taken steps to investigate the full facts of the matter.

Non Executive Director Monica Shafaq said: “Our supporters will be well aware of the club’s position and stance on these matters, so can be assured when we say we have, as a Board and a management team, quickly assessed the facts of the incident thoroughly.

“We absolutely condemn the use of foul and abusive language at any time and have reminded Amari of his responsibilities not only as a Kidderminster Harriers player, but as a role model for others.

“His actions will not be tolerated and, in line with FA Rules he will be suspended from playing and fined accordingly and, as a Club, we consider the matter closed.”

Amari Morgan-Smith said: “The club is very close to my heart so I am extremely upset that my actions may have caused offence to anyone at the Club – or anyone anywhere else.

“I fully accept that I used language I shouldn’t have done. At no time was I seeking to use it as an insult or form of abuse or malice, but I know that this is no excuse as there is no time that this kind of language is acceptable. I will take responsibility for my actions and learn from this.”

Neither party will make any further comment.

Fans reacted, and they were certainly left angry at the Kidderminster player who was sent off for what he said to allegedly Chester defender Danny Elliott…
