MATT Gwynne hopes that a move to league rivals Worcester City is the career break he has been waiting for after being promised their number one shirt.

The 24-year-old shot stopper from Bromyard hopes to move through the non-league pyramid system with his new side after leaving Westfields last week.

"I've always wanted to play as high as possible and I've always been confident in my ability but in football sometimes it's about luck," said Gwynne who has played at allpay.park since leaving Hereford United in the 2012/13 season.

"I'm hoping I can keep improving and go through the leagues with them which I believe the club will achieve and be back where they belong.

"For a goalkeeper I'm not even in my prime yet and I know there are areas that I still need to work on to improve but I feel the move is the best for me and I'm prepared to learn.

"Speaking to the gaffer, he has made it clear that he's brought me in because he wants me as number one but I'm going to have competition. If he thinks that I haven't performed he's going to take me out the side and I'll have to work to get back in.

"That's exactly how it should be, which I'm sure will bring out the best in me."

Gwynne said that the rotation policy implemented at Westfields last season made it hard for him.

He added: "There's nothing more frustrating than performing and then being left out the side to rotation as it kills your momentum.

"Rotating as a keeper isn't ideal if I'm honest, being with Keiron (Blackburn) last year we both understood we were both going to be involved but obviously you want to play.

"I think especially as a keeper you need a run of games and when your in and out it's hard to keep at the best you can be as it takes a couple of games to get your decision making and things like that.

"It was a hard decision for me to leave Westfields as I have been there now for a long time now, but that was one of my main reasons to decide to move. We have came close to promotion on many occasions but have never achieved it and you ask yourself why, as we've had great players there.

"After I heard Worcester were interested in me my mind was made up. But after speaking to manager John Snape I knew it was the club for me due to the professionalism and the plan he has for the club.

"I think if a team like Worcester came in for any player at this level and even higher they would struggle to turn it down, the fanbase and the structure of the club, you'd jump at it. "The money was never anything to do with my move, it's about being at your best."
