WORCESTER City have brought in experienced centre-half Chris Knight from AFC Wulfrunians.

The ex-Stourbridge, Lye Town and Stourport Swifts defender has played in non-league football for over a decade and will provide plenty of know-how in an already vastly experienced Worcester defence.

33-year-old Knight has spent most of his career to date with The Glassboys and amassed over 140 competitive appearances.

He will come into the squad for City's FA Vase tie at Stourport Swifts on Saturday, where he could take the place of the absent Elliot Keightley, who is unavailable due to being away on holiday.

The other option available to manager Chris Cornes would be to play the versatile Lorcan Sheehan alongside regular centre-half Kirk Layton. But the absence of Keightley will be a blow to City as he has become one of the first names on the team sheet.

The former Evesham United defender has been a consistent starter for Cornes and has built a strong partnership with ex-Pershore Town skipper Layton at the back. 

Keightley was also named vice-captain at the start of the season and led City on Saturday in the 6-0 win over Lydney Town.

On the plus side, Cornes will have skipper Adam Mace back in the squad after missing Saturday's win due to suspension. But the key duo of Dylan Hart (appendix removed) and Calvin Dinsley (hamstring) will not be involved as they are both out with injuries.
