JOINT-BOSS Wayne Oliver says Droitwich Spa are geared up for joining West Midlands (Regional) League Division One next season.

Although not officially confirmed, a Tweet from Redditch Borough showed Spa had been level transferred from Midland League Division Two as part of an FA reshuffle.

The governing body had confirmed the Step Five and Step Six constitutions at the end of last month and were due to reveal the Step Seven allocations this week.

However, it was rumoured a number of teams had appealed the reshuffle which had caused a delay.

Nevertheless, Oliver told the Standard the Saltmen were preparing for life in the West Midlands League and favoured the potential move.

“It’s not official yet but I am 99.9 per cent sure we will be level transferred,” he said.

“We are geared up for moving across and we see it as a new venture for the club.

“Droitwich should be in that league anyway so this a huge bonus for us.

“Logistically it is going to be better for us and we look forward to playing new teams, visiting new grounds and meeting new people.”

Meanwhile, Spa have agreed terms to bring in midfielder Cory Rudd from county rivals Bewdley Town although he cannot officially sign until registration forms are released.

Oliver added Spa were in talks with two or three more players and revealed none of last season’s squad which finished third in MFL2 had expressed a desire to leave.

“We are want to retain and add rather than lose and replace,” he said.
