Former Bromsgrove Sporting midfielder Turk can only play midweek games due to family commitments as he returns to the game following a year on the sidelines.

But he will feature tonight as Pershore head to Bilston Town Community in the second round of the Smedley Crooke Memorial Cup.

Manager Quentin Townsend will also have Aaron Xavier, back after suspension, and Dean Waldron, back after injury, to face the West Midlands Premier side but they will be without ineligible trio Terrence Morton, Harrison White and Charlie Anagho-Ntamark.

“We’re not going to win the league so this is a great opportunity to continue to push for some silverware,” said Townsend.

“I’m looking forward to playing one of my old clubs, going back to Bilston. I played there in the Southern League with Charlie Blakemore and Lee Bullimore and enjoyed my time at Bilston.”

The winners will be away to Herefordshire Premier team Bromyard Town – another of Townsend’s former clubs – in the quarter-finals.

Pershore, who ended a 14-match run without a win with a 3-1 victory at Chelmsley Town on Saturday, then face Coventry Copsewood at the King George Stadium on Saturday.
