City snap up Reece after his Gas exit
WORCESTER City have further bolstered their squad ahead of the new season by securing the services of midfielder Charlie Reece.
The former Bristol Rovers player, who has been training with the Blue Square Bet North club, has agreed a one-year contract at St George’s Lane.
His signature comes hot on the heels of striker Danny Glover returning to the club and utility player Tyler Weir penning a permanent deal.
Manager Carl Heeley said: ”I am very pleased to have secured Charlie. He can play central and wide midfield and has a terrific turn of pace and is very skilful. He will be a good addition to our squad.”
Reece, who turned 23 on Tuesday, struggled to make an impact on the Rovers first team and spent time on loan at Tamworth, Solihull Moors and Gloucester City. He began his career at Aston Villa and has been on City’s radar for a number of weeks, eventually linking up with the squad for training earlier this month.
Worcester have been in the market for a midfield player following captain Kevin O’Connor’s decision to return to his roots and join Bray Wanderers in Ireland.
Reece’s arrival increases Heeley’s options in an area that already boasts Thom Thorley, while Weir, Rob Elvins and Matt Birley can also operate there.
