REDDITCH United striker Dior Angus has left the club to sign for League Two side Port Vale.

Angus joined the Reds last season from Stratford Town after spells at Kidderminster Harriers and Solihull Moors.

This season, the striker has been in outstanding form scoring 17 goals in just 23 games, including a hat-trick at home to Dunstable Town in August.

New United boss Tim Harris said: “I have hardly had time to get to know Dior before he has moved on to take up a fantastic opportunity at Port Vale. He has impressed me immensely with his attitude and shown me just how much desire he has to succeed.

“From a personal point of view, it’s always disappointing to lose your top goalscorer, let alone within a week of joining a new club. I would always encourage players to progress if the opportunity arises as others will automatically see a pathway then want to be part of what you are trying to build. I am sure like everyone, Redditch United sincerely wish Dior all the very best at Port Vale.”

Redditch didn't receive a fee for Angug as he wasn't under contract with the club.

Harris has already bolstered his squad since his arrival with the signings of Edji Mbunga and Adam Page.

Mbunga, 20, joins from Hednesford Town and is reunited with Harris, who worked with the striker at Gloucester City. The former Birmingham City youth prospect will add pace and versatility to the Redditch squad.

Harris said: “Edji has bags of enthusiasm, and he is determined to improve his game and the squad. He will certainly give us a different dimension, and I am thrilled to have gained his signature.”

Page joins on-loan from League Two side Cheltenham Town. The 20-year-old attacking midfielder had spent the first-half of the season with Hereford but now moves to the Trico Reds suffered a disappointing festive period with defeats against Weymouth and Stratford. That was followed by a 5-2 New Year's Day defeat at Hereford.

Harris will look to bag his first win since taking over when United welcome Farnborough this Saturday (3pm kick-off).

Meanwhile, the manager strengthened his backroom staff with the additions of Alex Sykes, Reds’ captain Danny Jackman and Lee Randall last week.

Sykes, who joins as assistant manager, boasts a wealth of managerial and coaching experience with Bishops Cleeve and Shortwood United. The former Hereford United youngster also played for Mansfield Town, Forest Green Rovers, Nuneaton Borough, Bath City and Gloucester City.

Jackman, who took temporary charge of the side before Harris’ appointment, will begin a new chapter with Redditch United as player/coach.

Randall has been appointed as assistant coach. A member of Harris’ former coaching staff at Gloucester City, Randall is another former professional having started his career with Glasgow Celtic, before moving on to Oldham Athletic, Slough Town and Chesham United.
