Kacy Milan Butterfield is keen to cement a regular first-team spot after impressing for English non-League side Kidderminster Harriers this season.

The Bermuda midfielder has made eight appearances, including three starts, for the National League North side, and is determined to build on his eye-catching displays.

The 21-year-old, who went on loan to Redditch United in November, signed an 18-month contract with Kidderminster last month after being called up from their under-23 side.

“I’m enjoying my time at Kidderminster,” Butterfield told The Royal Gazette. “The programme provides a pathway into the first team. The chairman [Colin Gordon] is keen on developing young, hungry players and give them the opportunity to play, which will only be beneficial to both the player and club.

“I’d like to think I have performed well thus far, and have been rewarded with back-to-back starts recently. I’ll continue to work hard on the training ground in an effort to cement my spot in the starting line-up weekly.”

Butterfield was released by Walsall at the end of last season but considers the two years he spent at the Sky Bet League One outfit as a valuable learning curve.

“I definitely learnt a lot at Walsall,” said the former Robin Hood player. “From signing at the age of 18 and having no academy experience, Walsall presented a lot of firsts for me: first time signing for a professional club, first time living in England and the first time living on my own.

“It was a vigorous learning curve on an off the pitch to balance the day-to-day life as a pro. It wasn’t tough to leave, as the time spent there equipped me with the all the necessary tools to move on and seek another contract.”

After receiving a call-up for Bermuda’s recent friendly match against Cuba in Havana, Butterfield is hoping to retain his place in Kyle Lightbourne’s squad for their final Concacaf Nations League qualifier against Dominican Republic on March 24. Bermuda are seventh in the Nations League standings with two wins from three group matches. The top ten teams advance to the Gold Cup.

“It wasn’t my first time [being called up], but overall it was a good experience,” said Butterfield, who is represented by Bermudian agent Vinzie Zuill.

“It was definitely a worthwhile trip. It’s always good to get playing time and represent Bermuda on an international level.”
