Butterfield-Steede and Scott making strides
J’Nai Butterfield-Steede and Knory Scott played a key factor in Kidderminster Harriers Academy’s convincing home win over Midland Football League Under-21 West rivals Lichfield City last weekend.
The Bermudian pair were both on target in their team’s 6-1 win over the visiting side on Saturday.
Will Gibbons netted a brace while Brett Taylor and Ethan Moran scored the home side’s remaining goals.
“It was a good team performance,” Butterfield-Steede told The Royal Gazette. “We started off really well, which set the tone for the rest of the game, and we got the three points most importantly.
“Knory and I both took our chances well. Hopefully we can add to that for the remainder of the season.”
The result leaves promotion-chasing Kidderminster Academy three points clear of nearest rival Rushall Olympic at the top of the table with one game remaining against Droitwich Spa BG on March 28.
Butterfield-Steede, 21, has made steady strides during his first season with the club.
“I’ve had a good season so far,” he said. “My main goal is to play in the first team regularly, so I just need to keep doing the right things.”
Butterfield-Steede and Scott, who could not be reached for comment, are among a trio of Bermudians at non-League side Kidderminster, which also includes Bermuda midfielder Milan Butterfield.
Scott and Butterfield are both in their second season at Kidderminster.
Butterfield plays for the club’s first team while Scott, who represented Bermuda Under-20 at the 2017 Concacaf Under-20 Championship in Costa Rica, has been involved with the club’s under-23 and first-team squads.
“Having Milan there shows there’s a pathway into the first team,” Butterfield-Steede added.
“I play more regularly with Knory in the Under-23s.
“Knory trains with the first team regularly whereas I’m with the Under-23s. However, when it’s game time it makes it easier as I know how he plays and we work well together.”
