Trio join as City look for first win

Craig Gibbons 15th Aug, 2018

WORCESTER City will hope to get their first points of their second season in the Midland League Premier Division this weekend when they play host to Coventry United.

The Blue and Whites are yet to register a single point after losing their opening games to Boldmere St Michaels and Romulus respectively.

It has not been an ideal start for John Snape’s men but they will hope to turn their fortunes around on Saturday against Coventry at the Victoria Ground.

United have picked up maximum points from their opening two games and will once again be looking to challenge at the top end of the table for the title.

Three new faces are expected to feature for City this weekend after boss Snape added to his squad.

Full back Andy Gallinagh returns and has signed forms alongside defender James Timmins and midfielder Chris Withington.

Gallinagh made more than 20 appearances in City’s final year in the National League North before departing for Stratford Town in the summer where he made 41 appearances last term.

Timmins has joined on a dual registration from Southern League Premier Central side Stourbridge after impressing in a number of first-team training sessions with the Blue and Whites while Withington makes the move from Alvechurch.

Withington previously had spells at Shortwood Town and Banbury United.
