Robbie raring to go as City target promotion

NEW City midfielder Robbie Bunn has revealed he cannot wait to join up with his team-mates after agreeing terms with the Blue and Whites for the Midland Football League Premier Division campaign.

The Victoria Ground will be familar surroundings for Bunn, who joined Bromsgrove Sporting at the start of the 2016/17 season from Redditch United and played a huge part in the Rouslers’ path to ‘Invincible’ Midland League Division One champions.

He notched up ten goals in 47 appearances in all competitions during his debut season at the Victoria Ground and was a huge driving force in midfield alongside Ahmed Ali.

The 23-year-old’s efforts were rewarded at the start of the 2017/18 campaign when then Sporting manager Paul Smith put his midfield maestro on contract.

Bunn was once again a key man in the centre of the park for Sporting, scoring 13 goals in 36 appearances before terminating his contract and departing the Midland League Premier Division champions for Littleton after Smith suddenly quit from his post at the end of February.

During his time with the Ton Boys, Bunn scored four goals in 16 outings.

“I am delighted to get the signing sorted and have something to put my all into and also look forward to the coming season,” he told the Observer.

“Worcester City is a massive club which finds itself in a lower league than they should be, which acts as a drive for players to work as hard as possible to make sure the club is moving in the right direction.

“There are some great lads and players at the club who I’m looking forward to joining up with in pre-season. That’s the drive and commitment Snapper (boss John Snape) shows towards the players and club which are two huge factors in my decision to join the club.”

City chief Snape said: “Robbie is a complete all-rounder who works from box to box and can play anywhere across the midfield four.”
