Hednesford Town new boy Marvin Johnson says he is delighted to have joined the Pitmen on loan from Skrill Premier side Kidderminster Harriers.
The flying winger joined the Key’s Park outfit from Aggborough on loan to the end of the season.
He told StaffsLive he made the switch across the Midlands because he knows Jamey Osborne and the club is local.
“I need games and they got promoted last season and they could get promoted this season,” Johnson said.
“They are a good side and I have something to play for.
“So I would like to be a part of that and help them achieve the promotion.”
Johnson isn’t the only the player to have made the switch to Keys Park from Kidderminster.
Forward Nathan Blissett spent time there on loan earlier this season and Greg Pearson, who played last season for the Worcestershire club, spent a bit of time at Hednesford.
Johnson is with the Pitmen until the end of the season and believes they can get promoted into Skrill Premier.
He said: “All it takes is for us to stick as a team and to work hard. You will get your rewards from that.
“So if we do that then I don’t see why not.”
Johnson made his debut for Hednesford at Stockport County at the weekend, setting up the goal for the Pitmen to win 1-0.
After the game, he said: “We have worked hard and the lads have shown their ability.
“From that we played well and earned a goal from it. Stockport is not an intimidating place to come to for me.
“They are always going to give you a tough game and as shown through the second half.
“But we just stuck together and dug deep and the result has gone our way.”
Hednesford boss Rob Smith was pleased with Johnson’s performance, saying: “He has raw pace and created a goal.
“There are bits that are not right with his game. But he is a young boy and you pay for quality. He has been a welcome addition.”
