Quality starting to tell with Alcester newcomers
MATT SEELEY wants Alcester Town to benefit from the higher-level experience of their new signings as they look to continue their growing positive momentum.
Seeley and joint boss Richard Briggs have been able to welcome players from two and three leagues higher since taking over.
The priority is to push for promotion from Midland League Division Three, but the Red and Blacks will want to maintain their progress in county cup action tomorrow (Saturday) when they visit Birmingham League side Wake Green Amateurs in the Birmingham Saturday Vase third round.
“We’ve brought in players who have been playing at a higher level, like Reece Hewitt, who has been an unbelievable signing for us, and Ollie Gibson from Bromsgrove Sporting, Billy Fagg who was Paget Rangers captain, Danny Carter who won the golden boot with Paget. Tez Morton has played for Pershore and Halesowen. Luke Cosgrove was Fairfield Villa’s captain and Craig Carter was at Malvern and Luis Sone was Littleton’s keeper.
“The last few weeks have been all about getting things to gel. The last few games have shown we’re heading in the right direction but we need to keep it going.”
Gibson, who joined from Sporting two weeks ago, is available for his debut on Saturday while Jim Kelly and Callum Debar could also return after missing last weekend’s 6-0 win against FC Shush.
