Kidderminster Harriers make statement after bus attack

Kidderminster Harriers make a statement following the bus attack after Monday's game against Luton Town.

"It would be inappropriate to comment specifically on the incident in question as it has now officially become a police matter. If necessary we will do so once any investigation is completed.

"More broadly speaking, the Football Club in no way whatsoever condones any act of violence or aggression and wishes to extend its best wishes for a speedy recovery to anyone who came to harm on Monday."
