City boosted with new arrival ahead of Loughborough clash

WORCESTER City have welcomed former West Bromwich Albion forward Cameron Walker ahead of this afternoon’s visit of Loughborough University.

Walker, 18, joins from Stourbridge on dual terms and Dudley Town where he was dual registered

City failed to score in both defeats to Sporting Khalsa and Desborough Town in the FA Vase and confirmed on Monday (November 5) former Wolverhampton Wanderers Adam Osbourne and Josh Hesson had both left the club.

Osbourne has agreed a switch to City’s Midland Premier League promotion rivals Sporting Khalsa while Hesson has parted ways with City in search of further opportunities.

Hesson joined last month after being released by Wolves – a club he has been at since the age of seven. A move to League One outfit Sunderland fell through during the summer so Hesson found himself as a free agent.

After making contact with City after hearing they had signed another ex-Wolves player in Osbourne, Snape moved quickly to secure a deal for the versatile 19-year-old.

City entered Sunday’s FA Vase clash with Desborough Town as favorites but right from the off did not seem to be at the races and a first half to forget with aimless long balls from both teams continuing to go out of play.

The second half came and City fans would have hoped a change in mentality at the break may have followed but a misplaced pass put Desborough through four on three and a ball to the back post which was calmly curved around keeper Dan Jezeph to make it 1-0

Two yellow cards in quick succession for Jordan Harrison receive a yellow card left the Blue and White’s with an uphill battle and victory was sealed in the closing stages with a second goal to dump City out in a game which saw the home side fail to register a shot on target.

City host Loughborough University this afternoon (kick off 3pm)
