Goal ace Harrison signs new deal to stay at City

Rob George 10th Apr, 2019

WORCESTER City chiefs have continued their efforts to build towards next season with the signing of hot-shot Jordan Harrison on a new one-year deal.

The prolific striker rejected interest from other sides to pledge his future to the Blue and Whites for the 2019-2020 campaign in the Midland League Premier Division.

Harrison joined City at the start of the season and has quickly become a fans’ favourite with an impressive goal-scoring return in league and cup.

The 21-year-old former Cradley Town frontman has notched 15 goals this season and has set his sights on reaching the 20-goal mark by the end of the campaign.

He has become the second City player to sign up for next season after talented youngster Ethan Moran committed his future to the Blue and Whites last month and club chiefs hope to reveal more signings before the end of the campaign.

On the pitch, John Snape’s men have the chance to end the season with silverware when they tackle Studley in the final of the Worcestershire Senior Urn at Evesham United’s Spiers and Hartwell Jubilee Stadium tomorrow night (Thursday, 7.45pm).

Studley take to the field after original finalists Highgate United were kicked out of the competition after the Shirley-based side were found to have fielded an ineligible player by the Worcestershire FA. This final is due to be the last one held for the Senior Urn before the Urn is merged with the Senior Cup from next season.

Snape’s men go into the clash on the back of a 2-1 defeat at mid-table rivals Lye Town on Saturday (April 6) with the result pushing them to 12th in the table.

City took the lead through James Lemon’s tap-in from James Baldwin’s cross three minutes into the second half but headers from Sam Tye and Adam Meacham handed the Black Country side all three points.

After tomorrow’s final, City return to league action at the Victoria Ground against Coventry Sphinx next Wednesday (7.45pm)
