WORCESTER City have confirmed the signing of Ledbury-based full-back Tyler Weir after the full-back initially committed his future to Westfields.

A sudden change of heart saw the 27-year-old decided to ditch the Hereford club in favour of a return to Worcester.

Worcester manager John Snape was “over the moon” to regain the services of Weir who spent the end of last term with Redditch United on a dual registration deal.

“We are delighted as Tyler has been a regular at the club,” Snape said.

“He had a few ups and downs last season but he is looking to come to the club in a new position and we are glad to have him back.”

Weir has spent most of his career in defence but Snape is confident he can step up into midfield as he looks to fill the void left by Nathan Hayward and Robbie Bunn who backed out of deals to sign for City last month.

“We are looking to put Tyler in a more advanced position,” Snape said.

“He can play in midfield.

“That’s where he has played previously for us when Carl Heeley was manager. Tyler’s versatility is something that we are looking to use throughout the season, so we feel that he is a valuable addition to the current squad.”

Snape expressed his disappointment when Weir made the move to Westfields after he was unable to agree terms with cash-strapped City.

But the Worcester boss felt the long-serving player was now coming to the club for the “right reasons”.

“Financially we couldn’t get to where Tyler wanted to be,” Snape said.

“We are on a strict budget but he felt that he wanted to come and ply his trade with us so I am over the moon. We have got a good friendship with Tyler and this proves that he has definitely come back for the right reasons.”
