City swell ranks for third time
7:30am Wednesday 8th January 2014 in Sport By Steve Carley - Midlands Sports Journalist of the Year 2013, @stevecarleyWN
STRIKER Kristian Ramsey-Dickson has become Worcester City’s third signing in the space of 24 hours — and manager Carl Heeley expects more to follow.
The City boss has acted quickly to strengthen his squad following last Saturday’s 6-1 defeat at Bradford Park Avenue, which kept the Blue and Whites in the Skrill North relegation zone.
Utility player Aaron Brown agreed a deal with Worcester on Monday and he was joined by centre-half Jamie Grimes on a month’s loan from Kidderminster Harriers.
Now Ramsey-Dickson, a former Great Britain basketball player, has been drafted in on a permanent deal.
The 24-year-old was most recently at Alfreton Town and would have been available to make his debut in last night’s match against Telford United at Aggborough, which was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.
Heeley said: “We nearly took him on loan from Alfreton earlier in the season but he brings a presence up front, he’s powerful and strong.
“Going through these winter months, we need big, powerful players and, from the signings we have made, we are trying to look at the core of the side.”
The City boss, whose side travel to Histon on Saturday, added: “It probably won’t be the last of the signings either.
“We have got a lot of irons in the fire and we have done a lot of groundwork but the intention is to strengthen the squad.
“We have got a lot of games coming up and we need options with fresh blood in the squad.”
