Harris is happy for skipper to play away

Vanarama National League South Gloucester City are happy for skipper Tom Webb to carry on turning out for Mangotsfield United as he bids to regain match fitness.

A bad back injury kept Webb out of the club's pre-season programme but the Tigers midfielder is on his way back.

The 30-year-old, pictured, is dual registered with both clubs and played for the Evo-Stik Southern One South & West side in their 3-1 win at Tiverton Town on Tuesday night.

Webb will miss the Tigers’ trip to Stalybridge Celtic on Saturday and clash against Alfreton at the World of Smile Stadium next Tuesday before his situation is reviewed by Gloucester City boss Tim Harris.

Harris said: "He trained last week and he's ready to play games. Whilst we'd love to have him in and around our squad it's more important that he plays one or two games more games for them.”
