ONE OF the heroes of Worcester City’s historic FA Cup runs has rejoined the club on a deal until the end of the season.
Keeper Nathan Vaughan has put pen to paper on a deal which will see him compete with loanee Ethan Ross for the number one jersey.
“When I got the message about returning I was very happy. I’m looking forward to getting back at it and putting in solid performances on the pitch for the City faithful,” he said.
Before leaving City in the summer for promoted Solihull Moors, Vaughan had written himself into City folklore after saving a penalty in the 2-1 Cup first round win against Coventry City in November 2014.
The 36-year-old also produced an outstanding performance in the following round against Scunthorpe United.
He was between the sticks for Worcester’s record-breaking penalty shoot-out against the Iron which they lost 14-13 in December 2014.
It was the longest penalty shoot-out in FA Cup history
Vaughan made nine appearances for Moors this season before being injured, and, having returned to City, he was an unused sub in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at relegation rivals Altrincham.
The keeper has already taken to the field at City’s adopted home this season with a one-off game for the club’s landlords Bromsgrove Sporting.
Vaughan was at the centre of the action in Sporting’s FA Vase quarter-final against Buckland Athletic and saved a penalty with the score at 0-0 before Sporting sealed a 2-0 victory.
