TAMWORTH are expecting Worcester City to be fired up for this afternoon’s Vanarama Conference North encounter at Aggborough (3pm).

City’s second home match of the campaign falls into the category of a local derby and is particularly intriguing because of the links between the clubs.

Four of Worcester’s squad – Wayne Thomas, Jose Veiga, Connor Gudger and Nick Wright – have all been Tamworth players in the past.

Tamworth manager Dale Belford, whose keeper son Cameron had a loan spell with Worcester under Richard Dryden, reckons that will add extra spice to the fixture.

City are seeking their first win of the season having so far picked up two points from their first three matches.

Belford said: “We obviously know plenty about those lads and it will be a good test for us. That certainly gives the game a bit more of an edge. We just need to continue to show the same kind of commitment that we have been showing in the opening three matches and I am sure the results will start to come with that.”

Meanwhile, the sports zone at last Sunday’s popular Worcester Show, organised by City, has been heralded a success.

Coaches from the club’s youth set-up oversaw activities throughout the day in Gheluvelt Park, including freestyle football skills and penalty shoot-outs.

Officials from both the club and supporters’ trust were also on hand to speak to the public and talk about the proposed new stadium at Perdiswell.

As well as the club, there were representatives from the city’s tennis club, rowing club, the racecourse and the city council’s sports development team.

The sports zone came on the back of the club attending a number of events and fetes during the summer to further increase their community profile.
