PERSHORE Town will throw open its first training session to wannabe footballers in a bid to unearth hidden gems.

Any player aged over 16 can take part in the session at Town's King George V Playing Fields headquarters on Wednesday, June 20 (6.30pm).

The move follows hot on the heels of manager Quentin Townsend's departure with Paul Harris, his assistant last season, taking the reins.

Harris acknowledged "mainly the younger players" would be on his radar when it came to retaining last season's squad.

Those who stand out at the open session will be called back on Saturday, June 23.

Elsewhere, Westfields has appointed Paul Willetts as assistant coach as part of a restructure of its management team.

Former boss Sean Edwards will be head of football with Andy Bevan manager and Willetts his right-hand man.

The Hereford-based club is still waiting to hear whether it will be transferred from the Midland Football League to the Hellenic League.

“There will be two or three sides going for it so it’s not going to get any easier,” said Bevan.

“But that is the same in our league at the moment. It (switching) would give us some new places to go and would suit our footballing far more.”
