Gloucester City has completed the transfer of midfielder Tyler Weir from Worcester City.\r\n\r\nWeir, who returns to the Tigers after an 18 month stay in Worcestershire, has signed on a two-year deal.\r\n\r\nThe Gloucester-born star, who previously played 47 times for City, has expressed his excitement at returning to the club who he believes could be potential play-off contenders.\r\n\r\n“I’m really happy to be returning to the club after they had such a good season last year,” the 22-year-old said.\r\n\r\n“Hopefully we can go one step further next season and get into the top eight or even the play-offs.”\r\n\r\nBoss Dave Mehew described his delight at securing Weir after months of courting the ex-Hereford United player.\r\n\r\n“I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Tyler back to the club,” Mehew explained.\r\n\r\n“We’ve been talking to him for a few weeks now and it’s great to finally get it sorted.”\r\n\r\n“He’s been brought in as a replacement for Danny Andrew, who did fantastic for us last season, and if Tyler can get anywhere near that, he’ll be a superb replacement.”\r\n\r\nWeir will join the returning Scott Wilson and new forward Matt Groves as Gloucester City’s major summer acquisitions so far.\r\n\r\nMehew hoped that the two-year deal Weir has signed will settle down the player and help him improve.\r\n\r\n“We’ve signed him up to a two-year deal to show our faith fully in him; he’s the type of player we want at this football club.”\r\n\r\n“There has been a lot of hullabaloo around Tyler recently, but with us we want him to grow as a player that we believe he is and can become, he can settle down and help this football club move forward into the future.”\r\n\r\nWeir, who had offers from a few clubs, said that once Mehew issued his interest there was nowhere else he wanted to go.\r\n\r\n“There was a lot of interest with some different clubs, but I’m going to college in the City and I wanted to come back to Gloucester City.”
