LYE Town have captured former Stourbridge player Chris Knight who made his debut in last Saturday's goalless draw at Rugby Town.

The versatile Knight, who can operate in either attack or defence has been unable to play at higher level of football owing to his work commitments as a landscape gardener.

Lye boss Craig Harris said: "Chris has been ticking over by playing local football with Team Dudley. But he played up front for us at Rugby and was good value".

Lye's recent injury crisis appears to be easing as Harris was also able to include skipper Scott Gennard, Sam Tye and former Kidderminster Harrier Ryan Rowe in his line-up at Rugby.

Harris said: "Rugby have been firing in the goals recently but we worked extremely hard and defended really well. Not only the back four, but everyone.

"Ryan Rowe came off the bench for the last half hour and suffered no reaction to the broken bone in his foot which he sustained playing Sunday football".

Lye entertain Long Eaton this Saturday in the Midland League Premier and then travel to Alvechurch next Tuesday in a Worcestershire Senior Urn contest.

Lye will be looking to improve on their current 15th place but could be without Scott Gennard and Dan Flowers through suspension.
