Lye Town striker James Spray has agreed to join Alvechurch and will be considered for selection for Saturdays game against Walsall Wood.

Spray, 23, joined Wolves academy in 2006 and signed a professional contract in 2009. He scored on his senior debut for Wolves in September 2011 in a league cup win v Millwall.

He then joined league side Accrington Stanley on loan in October 2011.

He left Wolves in 2012 and signed for AFC Telford United, before joining Stourbridge in 2013 and a short spell at Bedworth United, before joining his present club, Lye Town in 2013.

This season, as club captain, he has made 31 appearances and scored 12 goals.

Manager Ian Long said “I have been a huge fan of James for a long time, he has good pedigree and will give the club a massive boost as we enter the run in”

Long continued “we have signed a player who has great ability, is strong , good in the air and can score and create goals from nothing. We have struggled for goals of late despite dominating games and hopefully he will provide us with that cutting edge. We know he’s highly rated and wanted by several clubs and we’re excited to have him on board. At 23 he’s the right age as we look to continue our improvement on and off the field”
