Rob George 6th Apr, 2019

A TRIP to the Black Country awaits Worcester City as the Blue and Whites look to finish the Midland Football League Premier Division campaign with a flourish.

The Blue and Whites enter the final five games of the campaign with a visit to Lye Town on Saturday (kick off 3pm).

City will be lining up against their mid-table rivals boosted by the arrival of Camden Duncan and Tom Chamberlain from Cheltenham Town.

Duncan, in the second year of his scholarship at the Robins, is a talented ball carrier who has caught the eye for the under-18s side. He has been named in the first-team squad for League Two and Checkatrade Trophy fixtures.

Chamberlain will add to City’s options in midfield where they have recently had a number of injuries. A central midfielder is in the second year of his scholarship at Cheltenham, he has appeared in the reserve team in the Central League for the club.

Leaving the club is defender Tom Fishwick, after a seven-day request came in from FC Stratford. His registration has now transferred to the Midland Division Two club.

City staged a second-half fightback to secure a 1-1 draw with high-flying visitors Shepshed Dynamo on Saturday (March 30).

The hosts looked dead and buried at the break but the introduction of half-time substitutes Kaoui Attounami and

James Lemon turned the game in their favour and had City made the most of their chances they would have been celebrating all three points.

Shepshed deservedly led 1-0 at half-time, thanks to Jordan Wilson’s goal.

But Lemon hit the equaliser on 54 minutes, finishing off from Attounami’s good work, and the striker had chances to add to his tally while Attounami bossed the midfield.
