Assistant manager Marlon Walters believes Worcester City's move back to Claines Lane signals the beginning of a "new era" and insists the future is bright for the club.

Following their move back to Worcester after a seven-year hiatus, City have been restricted to 300 fans due to social distancing guidelines.

But Walters is adamant that when fans do return in full, it will only help to push City in the right direction.

"It’s a new era," he said.

"With the restrictions in place we cant get the capacity we are capable of but we are thinking – let’s get the results right on the pitch, let’s get the City rocking again because football drives most cities and Worcester is no different.

"We are creating an ethos here and a togetherness, turn this place into a fortress and get the results right on the pitch and then when the fans can come back in, build on that for the future because I think if we can get that right we are onto something big."

"It’s a wonderful environment to be in and if you look at the potential here, players and facilities, we can go up the leagues and be successful, so I think if we get it right on the pitch, the results will follow."

Having been relegated from the Vanarama Conference North in 2016, the club took the decision to drop down three more leagues in the football pyramid.

It has been a tricky few years for the club but there is a new found energy among fans, players and management but Walters admits that with a big club such as City, there are expectations and the team must respond to that.

"I wouldn’t say we feel a pressure," he said.

"It’s more of an expectation we put on ourselves.

"It’s a great club, Worcester is a massive club and it’s an honour to be here and the players understand that and when we don’t perform to our own expectations and then on top of that, what we think the fans should expect from us, yes we can get disappointed.

"The Tividale one was upsetting because we had a lot of possession but didn’t have that cutting edge and it was a great day (opening day of Claines Lane) and we felt the fans deserved a show.

"It’s been a long time to get football on home soil.

"We put an expectation on ourselves, we have brought in good players that should be able to handle playing in front of 800-1200 fans and genuinely we come in with a mindset of we’ve got a great club, a great fanbase, let’s give them what they deserve – good football and some good results.

"The pressure comes with the fact we are involved with such a great club."
