Youth team striker Bobbie Dale has been handed a squad number ahead of this weekend's game.Youth team scholar and striker Bobbie Dale has been handed squad number 24.
The Worcester-based youngster has been impressing in recent months and has been training with the first team frequently but his performance against Torquay United in the reserve friendly on Tuesday also turned a few heads.
There is currently a work experience agreement in place with neighbours Bishop's Cleeve which will allow Bobbie to play first team football when possible although he won't be in John Brough's squad for their match away at Bridgwater Town.
17 year-old Bobbie being handed a squad number follows the news of winger Zack Kotwica signing a professional deal earlier in the week and pro deals for both Ed Williams and Joe Hanks back in May.
Steven Gillespie, who re-joined the club on loan yesterday, has been handed squad number 23.
