Worcester City goalkeeper Matt Gwynne believes the glory days will return to the club in the near future.

The City took the decision shortly after the end of the 2016/17 season to be relegated to the Midlands League for the new season instead of the Southern League Premier Division.

A sad demise for the club who beat Coventry City in the first round of the FA Cup in 2014 before going out on penalties to Scunthorpe United in the following round after an amazing shootout.

But Gwynne, who has just joined the side managed by Lee Hughes and John Snape believes there is no reason why those days can’t return to the club.

He said: “Sometimes you need to take a step back to move forward.

“I feel that’s going to be the case but for me, as a player, all I can do is give 100% for the shirt and do everything I can to get this club back to where it deserves to be.

I think the most important thing is trying to get that buzz around the city again, get the support and I honestly believe it could be a very exciting time ahead.”

The goalkeeper started his career with Hereford United before joining Westfields in the 2012/13 season where he has remained since.

But once he heard that the Blues was interested in signing him, he knew where he wanted to go.

He said: “ I’m absolutely over the moon to sign, as soon as I got a sniff that they were interested my mind was made up.

“For the chance to play for Worcester was a no brainer.

“Despite where the club is now they still have an unbelievable fan base and are still a massive club.”
