HIGHGATE United have signed the former Worcester City captain and midfielder Ellis Deeney for the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign.

Deeney, an ex-Aston Villa trainee, played back for City between 2012-2016 and had the armband when he was sold to Tamworth.

He has since played for fellow Worcestershire side Stourbridge since leaving City but will now join the Gate.

Highgate are also in the Midland Football League Premier Division with Worcester and face them in the second league game of the campaign this evening.

The game at Claines Lane kicks off at 7.45pm and the live-blog is now on the Worcester News website.
