WORCESTER City could delve into the transfer market in order to “regain that feelgood factor”.

Assistant boss Ashley Vincent confirmed he and manager John Snape had discussed recruiting on the back of Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Desborough Town in the FA Vase and the departures of Adam Osbourne and Josh Hesson.

And while City are in no rush, moves could be made later this week should the right players be available.

“We are looking but there’s nothing imminent,” said Vincent.

“With losing Josh and Ossie, that’s two players out of the squad and on the back of a performance that was not one of our finest, we might need a fresh face or two to liven things up and regain that feelgood factor.

“We will see what the rest of the week brings. We won’t just bring in lads to make up the numbers, we need to feel they will improve what’s already here. If that’s not the case we won’t do it.”

Hesson placed himself at the eye of a storm last month by throwing to the floor his shirt at the end of the home match versus Long Eaton United.

“Josh had the issue which was dealt with and nothing more happened from that,” explained Vincent.

“With his travel partner Adam Osbourne going and us not being able to offer him an immediate pathway back into the first team squad he felt it was best to move on.

“We fully appreciate that as a young lad he wants to be playing senior football. He goes with our best wishes and I hope he has a successful season. We want all young players to fulfil their potential so we will look out for him in the hope he shows his ability.

“He could not quite do that with us but that’s football. He suggested he would look for something a bit closer to home in the Wolverhampton area.”

City will look to get back to winning ways in a Midland Football League Cup round two tie at Premier Division rivals Highgate United tonight (7.45).

Other than long-term absentee Andy Gallinagh, Vincent hopes to have a full squad to choose from despite Tyler Weir suffering from illness. Luke English comes back into contention.

“It will be a strong squad with the majority of first-team players going in some capacity,” said Vincent.

“I am pretty sure it will be a full squad that we have to select from and whatever we decide, if they are fit, available and have no work commitments all of the lads will travel.

“The gaffer and I went to a game on Monday and we felt it would be right to get the boys back out on the pitch as soon as possible to work on some things we were not happy with.

"We will see what people are made of. It is probably the perfect place to go after weekend and I hope they play a strong side, it will be a test for whoever plays rather than it feeling like a dead rubber.”
