Rob Smith, manager of Evo-Stik League Premier club Hednesford Town, has moved to strengthen his squad following the arrival of Tyler Weir from Midland League Premier Division side Worcester City.

The experienced 26-year-old central midfielder began his career at Hereford United, making his Football League debut in May 2009.

Weir then spent two separate successful loan spells with Gloucester City between 2011 and 2012 before ending that year with a similar move Worcester.

Worcester would make the deal permanent in the summer of 2012 before Weir made a switch back to Gloucester twelve months later.

After playing twenty games for the Tigers he signed a deal with Worcester for whom he racked up almost 100 appearances before joining the Pitmen.

On leaving City, Weir said: “I have loved my time at this club and it has been a very difficult decision to make.

“After having discussions, I felt that at this point in my life this is an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.

“I firstly want to thank the fans for all the support they have given me and the club over the last few years.

“I want to say thanks to Lee Hughes but also a massive thank you to John Snape.

“He has helped me a lot over the last two years and I will be forever grateful to him.

“Lastly I want to say it has been an honour to have worn the blue and white shirt and also this season the captain`s armband”.

Weir becomes the latest new face to arrive at Keys Park following the signings of Richard Platt and Callum Bullock on dual registrations on Friday evening from Gloucester and Chorley respectively.

All three will be looking to help the Pitmen get back to winning ways tonight when Nantwich Town visit Keys Park.
