Conor Higginson has left Worksop Town to join Handsworth Parramore.

Higginson has been one of the stand out performers in the NCEL for the past couple of seasons during Worksop Town’s promotion bids.

He told the official Handsworth club website boss Mick Godber was a major reason why he left the Tigers.

“First of all I would just like to thank the gaffer (Mick Godber) and the club for their interest in signing me for the upcoming season,” he said.

“Mick and myself go back a while from our Glapwell days together so he was a major factor in my decision to leave Worksop after three seasons.

“The club was sold to me when I was told about its plans and ambitions for the next few years.

“I have played against Handsworth Parramore numerous times in the past and have always been impressed by the clubs hunger to win and togetherness between players and staff.

“I appreciate I am joining a competitive squad that finished second in the NCEL Premier last season, so I am here to work as hard as possible and potentially help the club go one step further by gaining promotion this campaign.”

Conor started his career at Mansfield Town and also played for Glapwell, Sheffield Fc, Grantham Town, Rainworth, Shirebrook, Worksop Town and Gainsborough.
