FORMER Worcester City midfielder Aaron Birch has joined local rivals Stourport Swifts for the 2022/23 season, the club have confirmed.

Stourport unveiled their newest recruit on Twitter on Monday lunchtime.

Birch first signed for City in 2019 for the 19/20 season but was snapped up by Southern League Premier Central side Alvechurch before rejoining Worcester for the 2020/21 season.

Birch, formerly of Hereford and Alvechurch, had agreed to another year with the club for the season just gone and scored the winner at Racing Club Warwick back in September.

But he left earlier than expected and now joins manager Quentin Townsend at Stourport.
