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.”

New forwards at last! We might now start seeing the full backs being allowed to overlap and put in crosses like they were doing so effectively at the start of the season but at that time we had forwards incapable of getting on the end of these crosses.

You never know we might even start seeing players in their right positions (example being Deeley) - I'm too excited for words so bring on Histon!
