LONDON, Feb 14, CMC – Bermudian midfielder Milan Butterfield has been rewarded for some impressive performances by being handed an 18-month contract by English non-League outfit Kidderminster Harriers, the club announced on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old has already featured five times for the Worcestershire club’s first team, who play in the National League North, since being called up from the club’s academy.
Butterfield, who was released by English League One outfit Walsall at the end of last season, played a key role in Kidderminster’s 4-1 win at home to Chester at the weekend.
“I think I’ve been doing very well so far; I just want to keep on doing that,” Butterfield said. “Being involved with the first team has been a great experience for me and I’ve enjoyed my whole time here.
“I have just got to keep pushing forward,” added Butterfield, who has previous experience of non-League football having had on-loan spells at Leamington and Rushall Olympic while he was with Walsall.
The former Bermuda Under-20 midfielder signed an initial one-year deal with Walsall in 2016 before signing an extension to his contract.
He was recommended to Walsall by Bermuda’s national coach Kyle Lightbourne, who played for the West Midlands club between 1993 to 1997. Butterfield played under Lightbourne at the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship in Costa Rica in 2017.
Kidderminster, who sit ninth in the table, two points off the promotion play-offs, are at home to York City on Saturday.
