WORCESTER City have moved to strengthen their attack before tomorrow’s league opener against Stalybridge by signing ex-Kidderminster Harriers striker Nick Wright.
The 26-year-old, who had two spells at Aggborough with Harriers and scored 23 goals in his first stint, could line up against Celtic in the Vanarama Conference North home clash (3pm).
However, it is still not clear whether Daniel Nti will be joining the Blue and Whites as last season’s top-scorer continues to attract interest from Wrexham.
Nti was involved in last Saturday’s 2-1 friendly win at Barwell but played on trial for the Dragons and is keen to move into full-time football.
The arrival of ex-Lincoln City striker Wright, who played in the 1-0 warm-up victory over Evesham, provides support for Mike Symons.
But manager Carl Heeley is keen to bring in another forward, particularly now Ethan Moore has left the club, and is calling on fans to help with sponsorship.
He said: “Nick will be a valuable addition to the squad and strengthen the forward line in an attempt to improve last season’s goals-for column. We’ve done a deal, which is positive, but that might be counteracted by losing Daniel.
“I’d like to bring another forward in. Ultimately, you can have all the experience and ability in the world but you’ve got to stick the ball in the net to win games.
“That’s an area where any help we can get (sponsorship) is massive and we’ll look to strengthen there.
“Wrexham are keen to sign Daniel but, as yet, no satisfactory conclusion has been reached with them, the player or his agent.
“Daniel has trained with the club and advised that ideally he would like full-time football but if he cannot secure a move now, then he is happy to continue to do his best for us with the aim of achieving his long-term goal.”
