Tonight's Birmingham Senior Cup fixture at HOME against Romulus has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.


A Further Squad Update

Monday 16/01/2017

Despite our fixture at Buxton falling to the weather, it has been another busy weekend at Keys Park on the playing front.

As was confirmed on Friday, defender Kyle Rowley has been allowed to leave the club – linking up with Rugby Town as he looks to get some more regular game time.

Fellow defender Lewis Wright has started his rehabilitation after being forced to sit out the last six weeks due to a troublesome knee injury. The right back was able to partake in some light training last week and will now undertake a strengthening programme after further checks with a knee specialist.

Meanwhile left-back Courtney Wildin has returned to Boston United after his one month loan deal came to an end. Everyone at Keys Park would like to thank Courtney for his efforts while with the club.

Manager Paul Casey has moved to strengthen this area of the pitch following the signing of Callum Roberts from Shrewsbury Town on an initial one month loan. The left-back has been ever present in the Shrewsbury reserve team this season with him breaking into the first team squad a couple of times in the last year.

Casey said:

“Callum has been on the fringes of the first team at Shrewsbury again this season and this will be a good move for him and us as he will be playing football at a good level.

“He comes to us highly recommended, has a good left foot and doesn’t mind putting a tackle in as well.”

Midfielder Tom Thorley has spent the last couple of weeks recovering from a hip injury and returned to full training last Thursday.

The football club can also confirm that attacking midfielder Ashley Sammons has departed Keys Park.

Casey added:

“Ashley approached us after the friendly match that we played against Redditch United two weeks ago stating that he wanted to leave the club in order to join Solihull Moors.

“Following this, the management team came together and decided that in the interests of both parties that it would be best to leave Ashley out of the first team squad for the trip to Spennymoor Town.

“Obviously, I am disappointed to see it end like this and sad to see him leave the club.”

Everyone at the football club would like to thank Ashley for his efforts while at Keys Park and wish him all the best for the future.
