Kidderminster Harriers have enhanced their strike force by signing James Keene from Premiership club Portsmouth.

As he was not on a professional contract at Pompey he joins the club on work experience.

This detail means that The Harriers have not used a loan allocation on the signing.

The 18-year-old has been on top form since he advanced into the Portsmouth reserves. He scored 12 goals in 11 games including a hat-trick against West Ham.

Keene will have his debut for the club, away at Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

"He is a young striker with a hunger to do well," Kidderminster boss Jan Molby told the club's official website.

"He has done very well this season and I know Portsmouth rate him very highly.

"He is eager to do well and we should benefit from that."
