NEW signing Pat Lyons believes Worcester City's St George's Lane surface is perfect for his passing game.

The 24-year-old, who completed his move from Burton Albion, is relishing the chance of displaying his skills in front of the City faithful and is optimistic for the season ahead.

Lyons is also looking forward to linking up with former Burton team-mate Allan Davies and also former Kidderminster Harriers front-runner Stewart Hadley who was at Derby County when the midfielder signed apprentice forms as a raw 16-year-old.

The midfielder revealed he had options to join other clubs but was lured to City by the potential at the club.

"I spoke to a few clubs but the thing that attracted me more was John and the size and ambition of the club," he said.

"I like to get on the ball and get things going and go and demand the ball and set attacks up.

"My game is to get on the ball and start passing and with the pitch at St George's Lane like it is and the quality of players here it will suit the way I want to play.

"Worcester have always been a decent team through the years and I know John is trying to build something here and I think it could be exciting times ahead.

"I can't wait to start pre season and I think John might be trying to sign a few more players so if we get off to a good start you never know what can happen."
