The Latest From Worcester City Football Team

Worcester Editorial 20th Jan, 2023   0

Besides real money online casino, football is one of the most appealing ways to pass the time.

There’s no better way to do this than getting up-to-date news regarding one of the best teams you can bank on: Worcester City Football. Let’s take a look at some of the updates in recent days.

The 9 Goals Thriller

Nine goals were scored amidst lots of excitement at Yockings Park, Whitchurch, but City ultimately came up short.

Debutants Dylan Hart and Reiss Taylor-Randle put City up 2-0 before the hosts got one back through James Rowland at the break.

After the break, Worcester came out strong and quickly added to their lead. Taylor-Randle slid the ball past Hart after going around the defender.

The two-goal advantage lasted only five minutes when the home team scored twice quickly to tie the score.

After a brilliant goal from Sam Yeardley, the lead was cut in half by Alex Hughes, who was sent in alone on City goalie Harrison and finished calmly.

Seven minutes later, City regained the lead. Taylor-Randle got pushed to the right and bundled over. The free-kick he hit hard, and from six yards out, it crashed into the back of the goal.

It didn’t take long for Whitchurch to tie the game up again. Jordan Evans’ shot deflected off Marvellous Onabirekhanlen’s foot and rolled inside the far post for a goal.

In the last seconds of regulation time, Whitchurch was able to cash in on some late pressure. A late cross came in, and Alex Hughes scored the game-winning goal for the home team with a near-post header, deflecting the ball past Harrison with his head.

Looking For the Last Man

Because of Adam Harrison’s departure, Worcester City manager Chris Cornes has some work to do in the lower league transfer market. The City goalkeeper was signed by Redditch United on Monday, leaving Cornes without an experienced keeper.

Dominic Hill ranked first on the youth team and was in camp with the rest before their 5-4 loss at Whitchurch Alport, but he did not play in the game.

Although he was named player of the year for the U-18 team last year, it would be asking a lot to include the kid in the starting line-up for Saturday’s match away at Market Drayton Town.

Assuming Cornes is looking to replace his current leader, all eyes will be on the job market.

If Cornes needed an example of a player who flourished in his system at Worcester Raiders, he need just consider Matthew Gwynne. The significantly bigger personality, a close buddy of the new City manager after his dismissal from Raiders, transferred to Hereford Pegasus last year.

In the play-off final last season, Gwynne’s team, Pegasus, defeated his former side, Raiders, to secure promotion to Step 5.

However, he has been out for the past few weeks owing to an injury.

There is no reason to rule out a transfer for Gwynne, given that Cornes has already re-signed four former players (Dylan Hart, Jordan Stoddart, Kyonn Evans, and Connor Jakeways) to play for City.

Even though he’s the clear frontrunner, Cornes is probably also keeping an eye on the other local goalies.

Eddie Cox of Pershore Town, Keiron Blackburn of Malvern Town, and Haydn Whitcombe of Bewdley Town are just a few examples of the many excellent choices available to Cornes in Worcestershire.

The season is gradually coming to a time when everyone wants to win a game or two.

There is no doubt that Worcester will be looking to boost their squad ahead of a busy schedule. While fans wait for something to conclude their season, all eyes are on the team’s manager to make the best of the current situation.
