Tony Bird linked up with his old boss Jan Molby when he signed for Kidderminster Harriers in July 2000 and impressed in the pre-season scoring seven times in eight games.

However when the campaign kicked-off in earnest the goals dried up and it took until April before he registered a league goal.

One of several players transfer-listed in January, he eventually forced his way back into the team in a new role in midfield where he added a physical presence to the side.
