AARON Griffiths has rejected the overtures of an unnamed Midland League rival to fight for his place at Worcester City.

The left-back has not featured in City’s past three outings despite being a regular presence before that, accumulating 15 appearances to date.

A club from Worcester’s division expressed an interest in signing Griffiths but the ex-Halesowen Town and Stourbridge man opted to stay put, featuring for the under-21s in an 8-0 victory at Heath Hayes last weekend.

“We had a conversation when the interest came in and to his credit, Griff made it clear he wanted to fight for his place,” said Snape.

“He hasn’t been in favour over the past few weeks but has decided to stay patient and try to work his way back in. Tyler Weir came back in so it has been difficult for him.

"Everyone wants to play but it is down to everyone, not just those waiting to get games, to battle for their shirt.”

Rookie winger Josh Harris-James has dual registered with Dudley Town to gain some senior experience.

Meanwhile, City has enlisted the help of physiotherapist Dan Holden.
