Tyler takes the armband for the 17/18 season

Joint managers Lee Hughes and John Snape have announced that the Worcester City captain for the 17/18 season will be long serving player Tyler Weir.

The combative fullback initially joined City from Hereford United on loan in 2012, and has since gone on to wear a City shirt over 200 times, making himself a firm fan-favourite in the process, in particular getting calls of "shoot Tyler" whenever he has possession in the opposition half!

On announcing Weir as captain, Lee Hughes said "Tyler leads by example and has been at the club for years, he knows the club inside out and the lads respect him."

When asked about being given the armband, Tyler said "It's a big honour to captain the club. We've got some big characters in the team so when Snapper and Lee asked me to be captain I was buzzing, and will take it with both hands. I want to get the club back to where we belong. I've been here for 4 years now and the club means something to me. I don't like losing and I want the other lads to be the same, then we will be going places."

The next game for City is a league game at the Victoria Ground against Heanor Town on Saturday 12th August 3pm.
