Goalscorer Geddes praised for cup heroics

PRAISE has been heaped on Worcester City’s FA Cup hero Sean Geddes after his brace ensured an historic 2-1 victory over Coventry City.

The tireless midfielder bagged a goal in each half to send the travelling support into raptures and seal a spot in the second round for the first time since 2005.

The former Manchester United trainee joined Worcester back in September but now heads the goal-scoring charts with six strikes, and manager Carl Heeley hailed the youngster since being with the club.

“He’s a goalscorer,” he said. “He’s got a good pedigree and in the FA Cup he’s certainly building his romance with it year after year, he’s ice cool and stuck it away well (the penalty).

“The second was a super finish, a magnificent strike but we know that Sean’s got goals in him, he’s got a super pedigree but he has maybe not had the breaks, he has had knock backs but that is going to do him the world of good.”

Defender Wayne Thomas added: “He’s a confident lad, he’s confident in his finishing ability, he’s a good header of the ball, a good striker of the ball and technically very good.

“He’s stepped up to come into the Conference North but I don’t see any reason why he can’t go and play in a higher league because he picks up great little pockets of space, he can play a pass and get a shot off.”

The 22-year-old was signed for the Blue and Whites from Stourbridge where his goal-scoring record of 63 goals in just three seasons caught the eye of the Worcester boss.

Assistant Matt Gardiner said: “He’s stepped up a level, but what a player.

“He anticipates where the ball will bounce and if he has got a strike in distance or a couple of sighters it is going to be a goal.

“He just loves playing football, he is one of those kids who is a street player, you could put him anywhere and it wouldn’t phase him.”
