WITH Worcester City’s return to the City imminent, fans have rallied to support the Club by adding their names to a "Brick Wall’ which will be installed at the Claines Lane site, when the Club returns for the new season.

The Wall will be a place for fans to add their names as well as remember friends and relatives who have passed away.

Steve Goode, chairman of Worcester City said: "We have had some wonderful messages, many from fans remembering friends who they sat or stood next to for many years at St Georges Lane (City’s former home) as well as in exile at Kidderminster and Bromsgrove.

"Going to the football is a way of life and meeting friends is a key part of that.

"It has been hard for many having to travel for the past seven years so we are looking forward to being back home.

"The wall will be a fitting centre piece at the ground and I am sure become a place where fans pause for a few minutes when they attend games."

One of those remembered on the wall is former Worcester News reporter Tony Moore who passed away in 2004 as well as fans remembering former players such as prolific goal scorer Alec Hair who scored an incredible 132 goals between 1930-32 whose tribute came from fan Douglas Gorman.

Others include City’s former Match Day Announcer for many years Tony Deakin remembered by his family.

Over 300 “Bricks" have been ordered so far which are available from the Club's online store at wcfcshop.com

Work has already started to build Worcestershire FA's (WFA) new headquarters at Claines Lane in Worcester as just one part of a major revamp of the facilities which also includes a new 3G artificial pitch, new floodlights and, as revealed in May, another new 100-seat stand for fans.

One of the proposed two 100-seat stands was put in place last year by fellow city club Worcester Raiders, but the WFA need to build another 100-seat stand to ensure the facilities meet requirements and are ready for Worcester City's proposed return to the city next season.

The new stand will now be moved for easier access, under new plans submitted to Worcester City Council.

League requirements mean part of the facilities must be covered for at least 300 spectators.
