Kidderminster sign Bignot
Paul Bignot

Kidderminster boss Mark Yates has freshened up his squad with the loan signing of Crewe Alexandra starlet Paul Bignot on a one-month deal.

The 20-year-old defender is the brother of ex-Harrier Marcus Bignot and arrives just in time to take his place in the squad for Saturday's game against Grays Athletic.

After achieving promotion from Crewe's prestigious youth setup, he signed his first professional contract with the club in February of this year, and has already made six first-team appearances at Gresty Road.

Although he hasn't played regularly for the first-team due to the fine form of defenders Darren Moss and Jon Ostemoboor, his performances in the reserves were enough to earn him a one-year deal.

On the completion of the deal, manager Yates told the club's official website: "Paul is a good defender and very good at defending in one-on-one situations.

"He'll give us that bit of solidity, he can play naturally at right back or centre back which is good for us with Jeff Kenna still out for a couple of weeks more.

"I'm grateful to Dario Gradi and Crewe for letting us bring him in for a month."
