NEW Worcester City signing Kyonn Evans admits he can’t wait to get the chance to turn out for his home club.

With joint manager Lee Hughes sidelined with a thigh injury the club’s attacking options have been limited but the 25-year-old, who was on City’s books as a youngster, is ready to make his mark after switching from Malvern Town.

And that chance could come in tomorrow’s trip to Midland League Premier Division high-fliers Lye Town (3pm).

“I jumped at the chance to play for Worcester my home city,” Evans admitted.

“When I was a teenager here I wasn’t up to that level and obviously in my opinion it’s a big achievement to play for your home-town club.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back. I had a few inside scoops that they were interested in signing me again and then as soon as I had word of it I was quite excited.

“Seven days went into Malvern and I was dual-registered at Pershore Town as well.

“Malvern are a great club, really well run and heading in the right direction and we had a great start. 

“I was at Stourport so I have played in this league and it’s a step up but I don’t think it’s anything I can’t handle.”

Teenagers Aaron Brett and Tyreece Ruddock have both been handed their chances to lead the attack alongside veteran Mark Danks and another former Malvern favourite Dave Reynolds.

And joint boss John Snape said more of the club’s talented youngsters could be ready to step up into the first team.

“We want to work with the players we’ve got,” he explained. “There might be an addition but we’re looking at the lads coming through from our under 21s.

“There have been some sparkling performances from Hamilton (Chiwara) which have been noted by me and Lee Hughes.

“Also Sam Yeomans is coming back from a long injury. People forget he is an up-and-coming local lad who we want to involve in the squad.

“Everybody thinks this league is going to be a doddle but it’s not and it’s a learning curve for us.

“It’s a little bit of the unknown and we’re a new side coming together.”

Unlike eight-placed City tomorrow’s opponents are Midland League veterans and have plenty of experience in their side.

Midfielder and assistant manager Lee Downes has played for a number of leading non-league clubs including Kidderminster Harriers and Solihull Moors.

Ben Billingham and Scott Gennard were both fans’ favourites at Stourbridge.

Fourth-placed Lye have not lost this season and after drawing their opening two fixtures go into the City game looking for a fifth straight win.
