CHRIS Sterling was again on target for Worcester City as Tim Harris' men recorded their third win of the pre-season programme with a 4-2 result at Cymru League South side Briton Ferry Llansawel AFC.

Sterling netted twice in the final quarter of the game, both times assisted by the impressive Taylor Townsend, as City reacted to letting a two-goal first-half advantage slip to secure another win.

Youngsters Archie Muirhead and Josh Schuck bagged a goal each in the opening 20 minutes as the visitors raced into an early lead before the Welsh side reduced the deficit right on the stroke of half-time.

Worcester's Daniel Westwood had a chance to restore the two-goal lead in the second period from the penalty spot, but smacked his effort against the post.

The hosts then drew level on the half-hour mark before Sterling, who came on as a substitute just before the equaliser, handed Harris' charges the win.

After the game, the City boss admitted there is still plenty to work on but was ultimately "delighted" with the attitude of his players once more.

"I still think we are a long way from where we need to be," he said.

"That's not me trying to be clever or play things down but it's all about winning football matches and we are doing that.

"We have won three games and lost one and we are scoring plenty of goals and we created about 20 chances on Saturday and that was pleasing."

There was more game time for products of the Worcester City Youth set-up with Cameron Monteith, Jake Whitehouse and Josh Schuck all involved again, as they have been through the pre-season fixtures so far.

Harris was full of praise: "They have been absolutely excellent," he added.

"Schucky has just come in and we have also had Mati Klich training with us as well, played at Wellington the other night and looks really promising.

"And Josh Willis as well who is another one from the youth who is now doing well in the first team. The pathway has to be there but they have to be good enough as well and whilst these lads have to be a little bit patient, they have great quality.

"What impressed me was their desire and that will take them a long way."

Whilst there was a game of football to play, Harris explained that the trip to Wales was also used as a team bonding experience and gave a lot of credit to their hosts for the day. 

"It's something I have always done," he said. 

"It's trying to create that team bonding and bring everyone together. I have always found that little trips like that unites everybody, especially those who are new to the group. 

"It was really good. We had a few beers with them after the game in the clubhouse and I have to say, they (Briton Ferry) looked after us and were an absoloute dream and it was a great afternoon and evening had by all."

Worcester are next in action this weekend, at home to Stourbridge FC (3pm kick-off.)
