Kiddy Sign Pair Ahead Of Derby

Kidderminster Harriers have signed striker Jon Newby from League Two strugglers Bury for a month and have added former Peterboro defender Simon Rea, also on loan.

Newby, a former Liverpool trainee, originally cost Bury £100,000 when they took him from Liverpool in 2001, but he failed to live up to expectations and has scored just 29 goals in over 200 appearances for six teams, leaving Bury on a free transfer for Huddersfield but returning after just a season in which he failed to score a first team goal.

This season has been an injury nightmare for the player, racking up just 60 minutes of first team action in the last five months.

Rea, who left Peterboro in the summer, has recently been playing for Nuneaton but has also struggled with injury this season. He racked up 150 games for Peterboro in six years, but has missed most of the last two months for Nuneaton.
