HOT-SHOT Jack Jeys has become the latest new face as Worcester City manager Ash Vincent continues his revamp of his Blue and Whites squad.
Jeys is among a trio of new faces alongside Aaron Birch from Hereford FC and former Nuneaton centre half Nat Kelly who have all arrived to bolster the City squad ahead of the Midland Premier Division campaign.
Prolific striker Jeys has had spells at Coventry United, Sporting Khalsa, Bedworth and Racing Club Warwick and captured the attention of the City faithful two seasons ago in 5-3 win for Khalsa at the Victoria Ground.
Jeys scored four of the five goals on the day including a sensational curling effort from the edge of the area and a length of the field run to complete his hat-trick.
City chiefs are also delighted to have agreed terms with midfielder Birch who was part of the Hereford team who won the Midland Premier a few years ago.
Birch has also played at West Brom, Stourbridge, Alvechurch, Halesowen and Sutton Coldfield Town and, speaking after completing the deal, Vincent hailed the potential impact of his new star.
“Birchy was another one of my top targets this summer and I’m so pleased and excited he has agreed to come in for the season ahead,” he said.
“He came to us and rejected offers from higher up the pyramid to do so. He has the right mentality and experience of this level from his time with Hereford.”
Centre-back Kelly came through the youth ranks at Birmingham City before a spell on loan to Kidderminster Harriers in 2015.
Since then he has played for Solihull Moors, Leamington, Nuneaton and a short spell at Leicester Road midway through last season when Nuneaton released all of their non-contracted players due to ongoing issues.
“I’ve known Natty for a long time, he’s someone with admirers from full-time clubs but wants to develop to get there,” Vincent said.
“He has experience at Birmingham City, Solihull Moors, Leamington, Nuneaton and Sutton Coldfield Town – so levels above this – but knows here there will be a winning attitude and wants to be in that environment.
