Tamworth hunt Yeltz winger
TAMWORTH have been running the rule over Halesowen Town’s talented teenage winger Jean-Michel Gueyes.
The 18-year-old Yeltz prospect trained with the Lambs this week after the Blue Square Bet Premier side put in seven days notice of approach.
Yeltz boss John Hill said: “I’ve spoken with Tamworth’s caretaker manager Dale Belford, who did everything by the book.
“They’re having a look at him at the moment and we’ll take it from there.”
Gueyes has caught the eye in recent games and netted the opening goal at Loughborough Dynamo last Saturday as the Yeltz went onto win 2-0, Mitch Botfield sealed victory late in the game.
It signals Halesowen’s third straight win in Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One South and takes them upto seventh spot, four points shy of the play-off places.
More pleasing for boss Hill is the fact his Yeltz side have kept three clean sheets, although he played down their recent upturn in form.
He said: “It’s nothing to get excited about at the moment, although the clean sheets are a massive bonus.
“Three wins can alter your position drastically in this division, but if we could make it six, I’d be much more upbeat about that.”
Hill has been able to reinstate Paul Evans back in goal, following the departure of Dean Coleman.
“Paul stayed both professional and committed to Halesowen and I’m very pleased that he did. Simon Flowers will remain as his understudy and it’s simply a situation of going back to where we were.
“It’s never nice when clubs from a higher level take your players, but we’ve just done exactly the same to Causeway United by taking their full back Adam Meacham, who made a very pleasing debut against Loughborough.”
