Watch club play before big move

Worcester News: Watch club play before big move Watch club play before big move

Worcester City have challenged every person who lives in the city to attend at least one game in the club’s final season at St George’s Lane.

City, who kick-off at Bradford Park Avenue in Blue Square Bet North on Saturday before hosting Bishop’s Stortford on Monday night, will move out of their 108-year-old home next June when it will be demolished for housing.

A leaflet entitled “One City One Club”, sponsored by West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire, will be delivered to every household in Worcester throwing down the gauntlet.

City director Rich Widdowson said: “Worcester City Football Club is Worcester’s local club. We have strong family values and are increasingly offering opportunities for young players to get involved at Worcester City – from playing on the pitch before the game free of charge, to offering free tickets to youth football teams.

“We want as many people in Worcester to experience football at St George’s Lane before it leaves us forever, as well as welcoming fans into the new era of Worcester City Football Club when we move into our new stadium.”

A ground-share with Kidderminster Harriers is on the cards after next June because, although planning permission has been granted for a basic ground at Nunnery Way, more funds still have to be raised.

Sinclaire added: “Worcester are a fantastic family-orientated club in this terrific old ground and we should give them the send-off they deserve.

“With low priced tickets and a welcoming atmosphere, anybody in Worcester would feel at home at this club.”
