Farrell to get his chance at City
9:30am Thursday 20th February 2014 in Sport
STRIKER Aaron Farrell will be given chance to prove himself at Worcester City after signing for the club.
The former Kidderminster Harriers player has agreed non-contract terms at Aggborough and made his debut as a late substitute in Tuesday's 1-0 Skrill North defeat against Telford United.
Now the 27-year-old, who has also played for Tamworth and Sutton Coldfield, could get more minutes in a bid to earn a permanent deal.
Manager Carl Heeley said: "Aaron has been training with us and I would have liked to have had a look at him in the Redditch game (postponed in the Worcestershire FA Senior Cup).
"It's the first time I have seen him in a game but I need to see a bit more of him before I make any long-term decisions."
Farrell played the last six minutes of the Telford match as City failed to find an equaliser to Dan Preston's 12th-minute goal.
"We have played worse than that and won games but we have got to put it into context," Heeley said. "They went top of the league and the fact we are disappointed not to get a point shows how far we have come as a team."
He added: "We knew we would have to defend for long periods and in the first half-hour we had to do just that.
"I thought we deserved to be behind at half-time but we dominated in the second-half and they we hanging on a bit. If it hadn't been for some questionable finishing, we would certainly have got a point out of the game.
"We never gave up and kept going to the final whistle. I couldn't fault the players' effort and the way they carried out the game plan in the second-half."
