WORCESTER City’s James Baldwin is the subject of an approach from Malvern Town.

Boss John Snape has waived City’s right to a seven-day notice period and despite wanting to keep hold of the frontrunner insists he will not stand in the way of a move.

Snape acknowledged Baldwin had been irked by not starting any of the three matches before Saturday’s 6-1 success at Dunkirk, a fixture the Fernhill Heath-based player was thrust at the 11th hour after Joel Caines suffered an injury in the warm-up.

“We’ve had an approach and waived the seven-day notice period,” said Snape.

“I only want players who want to be at the club. James is an integral part of the squad but we everyone knows there is a long way to go in terms of his progression.

“We have a great selection of young players and minutes are priceless for everyone. James has probably been a bit frustrated with the amount of games he’s started on the back of being player of the month for August.

“I don’t want him to go anywhere. I want him to fight, get himself in the first team and stay there on a regular basis.”
