WORCESTER City will be looking to Ethan Moore to build on his excellent debut season when the new campaign gets under way.
With top-scorer Daniel Nti seemingly set to turn down the chance to stay with the Blue and Whites in favour of chasing a full-time contract, City will need to replace the striker’s goals.
Moore found the net 12 times last term and with Nti accounted for more than half of the team’s 54 goals in all competitions. He will be expected to chip in his fair share again, along with Mike Symons, who has returned from Oxford City for a second spell with the club.
Moore will be looking to benefit from a full pre-season with the club 12 months after his commitment was called into question by manager Carl Heeley.
That led to him leaving the club before he returned towards the end of the warm-up programme.
But he has featured in the friendlies to date and has been in the gym bulking up for the campaign ahead.
Meanwhile, the club’s on-line video channel has become a hit with fans after clocking up more than 80,000 views since being launched two years ago.
All matches are filmed for highlights on their official website, which have been viewed in 128 different countries.
Last season, every City goal was captured with the exception of the consolation in the 6-1 defeat at Bradford Park Avenue.
Elsewhere, a minute’s silence will be held before next Thursday’s friendly match at Westfields in honour of one of their oldest supporters, Fred Jones, who has died at the age of 93.
Jones, who was a club vice-president, officially opened Westfields’ sponsors’ lounge with Jesse Norman MP.
A former Worcester player, he later scouted for Nottingham Forest and Mansfield. His funeral will be held at Holmer Church, Hereford, on Tuesday at 10.30am.
