EX-WEST Brom striker Lee Hughes has signed for Halesowen Town after stepping down as Worcester City's joint-manager.

Hughes's exit was confirmed by a City club statement.

It read: "Player and joint-manager Lee Hughes has left City following a request being submitted from a club two leagues higher than ourselves.

"Lee rejoined City to become player and joint-manager in the summer alongside John Snape, having previously played for City between September 2015 and February 2017.

"John Snape will remain as sole manager.

"We wish Lee all the best in what the future may bring for him and thank him for his efforts at City both as player and joint-manager."

The Yeltz have now announced the signing as they look to add the firepower to push them away from relegation trouble.

Halesowen currently have former West Brom midfielder Richard Sneekes as coach at the Grove.
