JOINT-manager John Snape insists there are “no worries” over fielding sought-after George Forsyth before paying tribute to Worcester City’s flexible friend.

Forsyth has been passed fit to feature in tomorrow’s Midland League Premier Division showdown with Lye Town at the Victoria Ground (3pm) in spite of requiring a protective cast to cover a broken wrist.

Snape reports the 21-year-old has suffered no further trouble following his participation in three training sessions since picking up the injury in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Pershore Town in the build-up to Christmas.

And with the ex-Kidderminster Harriers youth captain “itching” to cross the white line on the back of a flurry of City postponements since Boxing Day, it seems he will be granted his wish to play.

“George has come through three training sessions now and while the break is still there, he has had no complaints,” said Snape.

“You never know for sure until you play that first full 90 minutes but I have no worries with George. He is a true 100 per cent type of player who is itching to get out there and I am very pleased with how he has handled the disappointment over his injury.

“Throughout his time on the sidelines, he has been hungry and attacked it in a positive manner. We are looking forward to him adding competition for places in the starting XI.”

Snape readily admits Forsyth’s continued presence is a feather in City’s cap.

Initially signed on loan for a month from Gloucester City at the back end of August, the midfielder’s ineligibility for FA Vase matches due to his contracted status with the National South club in part halted plans to renew a temporary deal.

But having terminated his arrangement with Gloucester midway through October, the ex-Wolves youngster has made quite an impression in his 13 appearances across a variety of positions.

“George arrived on the back of not playing at Gloucester and in that first match at Coventry United, we were seriously depleted by injury and suspension,” added Snape.

“He came in to help us through a sticky patch and get himself some valuable minutes in a competitive environment.

“Things have progressed since and that has been a big benefit to the club and our squad. He has progressively got better and the fact he is a clever footballer who is capable of playing in several positions is a real boost for us.

“Understandably, he has had interest from higher levels but he seems to be happy at Worcester and hope that continues to be the case.”

Winger Alex Tomkinson is set to join Forsyth in climbing off the treatment table following a minor hamstring complaint.
