WORCESTER City will be bidding for a hat-trick of victories to start the new season when Boldmere St Michaels make the trip to the Victoria Ground.
The Blue and Whites have been boosted by the news talented West Bromwich Albion keeper Ted Cann will remain with the club until August 26 after the Baggies agreed to extend the young stopper’s loan.
Cann has won praise for his performances between the sticks this season and the extension will allow Dan Jezeph further time to recover from an injury sustained in pre-season.
Saturday’s game comes on the back of a 1-0 win over South Normanton Athletic last Wednesday and Sunday’s 4-1 extra preliminary round FA Cup win over Stone Old Alleynians.
Old Alleynians, playing in their first ever FA Cup game, got off to a tremendous start when Jack Tomlinson nipped past Nat Kelly to beat City keeper Cann from ten yards.
City drew level in the tenth minute when Jordan Harrison sprung the offside trap to run on to a great pass from Chris Withington and beat the advancing keeper and they were in front four minutes later when Jak Jeys lofted the ball home.
A frantic first quarter of the game came to an end with a penalty for City when Harrison was brought down in the area and dusted himself off to slot it home to give City a 3-1 lead.
Victory was seal in the final ten minutes when Levi Andoh headed home from a Demetri Brown cross.
As well as a welcome £2,250 cash boost, City have earned an away trip to Heather St John’s on August 24 in the preliminary round.
