KIDDERMINSTER Harriers have signed Keyon Reffell from Port Talbot Town on a pre-contract deal.

The 24-year-old, who will be available to play for Harriers in the New Year subject to international clearance, is "thought to be one of the most exciting prospects from the Welsh leagues" according to a statement on the club's website.

Reffell played with Ely Rangers, Dinas Powys and Caerau (Ely) in the Macwhirter Welsh League before joining Afan Lido in July 2013. 

 Signed for my first pro club today absolutely buzzing. Like to thank @PortTalbotTown for everything and @PTTsupporters best fans in league.

He moved to Carmarthen Town at the start of the January 2014 transfer window but left five months later to sign for the Steelmen, where he has completed a career total of 40 (+3) Welsh Premier appearances, scoring one goal.

Reffell is the second Steelman to move to the Conference in recent times, following in the footsteps of Scott Barrow, who signed for Tamworth in August 2010 and is currently with Macclesfield Town.

Speaking after his move, Reffell said: "I'm delighted to be joining Kidderminster Harriers.

"It'll be sad to leave Port Talbot but this is my first professional contract in football so I can't wait to get started.

"I'm looking forward to working with (manager) Gary Whild, too.

"I know about his reputation for signing and developing players and it was one of the main reasons that I have joined the club.

"I played for Cardiff City's academy between the ages of 12 and 14, and have mainly played for Welsh Premier League teams since then.

"As a player I'm quick, strong and have got a bit of skill on me!"
