Kidderminster Harriers want the dedication and professionalism of former Birmingham City defender Jeff Kenna to rub off on his new team-mates.
The Nationwide Conference club have produced a real coup by snapping up the 35-year-old former Republic of Ireland international after he was released by Derby County in the summer.
Kenna, who skip-pered Blues and Derby, has signed a one-year deal.
The Dublin-born player helped Blackburn Rovers win the Premiership in 1994-95 after a £1.5 million move from Southampton. He also had loan spells at Tranmere and Wigan before moving to Blues in February 2002 and then to Derby County in March 2004.
Harriers manager Mark Yates said: "Jeff has been a great pro throughout his career and if everybody in the squad can have the same attitude and dedication as him then I know we'll be a force to be reckoned with.
"I'm delighted to have Jeff on board.
He's been training with us over the past few days and his attitude has been first-class.
"He can play in both full-back positions - or anywhere in defence - and I know he'll bring a massive amount of experience and professionalism to the squad."
Burton Albion will meet Nottingham Forest in tomorrow night's Bass Charity Vase final at the Pirelli Stadium after Notts County pulled out of their scheduled clash with the Brewers last night.
Notts, who had cancelled a friendly with Nigel Clough's men last month, said they could not fulfil the fixture to be played at Rocester because of injuries and another friendly against Sheffield United.
Former Bristol Rovers defender Christian Edwards has joined Kidderminster's Conference side Forest Green Rovers. The 30-year-old, who won one cap for Wales, was freed by Bristol Rovers at the end of last season.
