GOALKEEPER Dan Jezeph has become the latest Worcester City player to commit to the club for next season, despite a lengthy ban which will see him miss the first three games of the new campaign.
Jezeph joins Jordan Harrison and Ethan Moran in putting pen to paper for the 2019/20 campaign after confirming he would be leaving parent club Tamworth at the end of the season.
The keeper is currently making his way towards the end of a 150-day ban from the Worcestershire FA which comes to an end on Sunday (April 28).
Jezeph was sent off for the Blue and Whites in their 6-1 reverse to Westfields on November 24 after remonstrating with referee James Cox following the visitors’ fifth goal. He was charged with improper conduct against a match official including physical contact, violent conduct and threatening and/or abusive language/behaviour and admitted his guilt.
The suspension for the red card will be added to the start of next season when its expected the former Walsall keeper will take the gloves for the new season.
On the pitch, City will look to bring the curtain down on the Midland League Premier Division campaign with a win over Highgate United on today (Saturday) to seal a top-10 finish.
John Snape’s men reached the 50-point mark with victory over Dunkirk on Saturday as goals from Luke English and James Lemon sealed a 2-0 win.
A Jordan Harrison penalty looked to have set City up for another three points at Westfields on Easter Monday but the visitors were pegged back in a 1-1 draw. Harrison was felled by Sam Rawlings for the 62nd-minute penalty but
Aidan Thomas fired home from the edge of the area in injury time to pick up a point for the Herefordshire side.
Saturday’s clash against 14th-placed Highgate at the Victoria Ground kicks off at 3pm.
