Departed Bull Tyler Weir says he chose Worcester over Gloucester because he is due to commence a plumbing course in the city - and he doesn't drive.
The 21 year old told the Worcester News that the decision to do the training course in Worcester swung the decision, but he also praised the club's coaching staff:
“Carl (Heeley) and Gards (Matt Gardiner) were a big factor in me coming as they want to push the club on. They run it as a professional club so they were a big influence on me. City also get 900 fans to a game and that doesn’t happen much in non-league. I don’t think they should be in this division but hopefully next year we will be saying something different.
“We just missed out on the play-offs so this season hopefully we can go one step further.”
Meanwhile, former Bulls winger Neil Lyne has taken on the full time role of Head of Football Development at Hinckley United. Now 42, Lyne will be responsible for five different age-group sides from Under 14's to Under 21's.
The former Nottm Forest trainee played 63 times for the Bulls between 1994 and 1996, and has previously been coaching with Leicester's youth section and as assistant boss at Woking.
