Accomplished midfielder Connor Gater has become the latest player to agree terms with Stourbridge ahead of the new season.
The 24-year old had attracted interest from other clubs over the summer after leaving Worcester City, but Stourbridge are delighted to have landed his services after he impressed in a three-month loan stint from Worcester at the War Memorial Ground last season, despite suffering from a troublesome toe injury at the time. He has since undergone surgery and has been undertaking rehab.
He linked up with Gary Hackett’s men towards the end of October 2016 and he started in the draw away at Whitehawk in the F A Cup 1st Round before making a telling contribution as a substitute against Northampton Town in December and he also featured late on as a sub at Wycombe Wanderers.
The former England schoolboys under 18 international joined Worcester in 2014 after previous spells at Halesowen Town, Sporting Khalsa and Gornal Athletic and settled in well at National League North level. He also played his part in Worcester’s runs to the F A Cup proper stages in both 2014/15 and 2015/16.
