Alfie craving success with Worcester

STRUGGLING at the wrong end of Blue Square South has come as a shock to the system for Alfie Carter after four seasons of success with The New Saints.

But makeshift left-back Carter is hoping Worcester City can start to turn their fortunes around.
The 29-year-old former TNS frontman was used to winning titles and playing in Europe during his four seasons with the club, yet despite all this the former Walsall man believes that the standard in Blue Square South is harder than facing the likes of Aberystwyth Town each week.
"This league is a lot stronger than the Welsh League," Carter said. "But I did enjoy my time with The New Saints.
"I was used to winning there and it can be quite tough when you are not.
"But hopefully we can start to string a few results together and kick on because I don’t think that we have been doing ourselves justice.”
Signed as a forward by boss Richard Dryden in the summer after being released by TNS, Carter has struggled for a regular place in the team. However, with left-back Shabir Khan away with Pakistan, Carter has been asked to fill the void.
"I don’t mind where I play as long as I’m in the starting XI," he said. "I played most of my games with TNS up front but I did play left midfield and left-back as well."
Plagued with injuries during his time at Treflan and Park Hall, Carter left TNS for a coaching course in America.
But on his return he found that his services were in high demand before committing to the St George’s Lane outfit.
"There were a few clubs that were interested in me when I got back from America," he said. "But when I came here for training I liked the lads and the banter and I’m enjoying my time here."
