HEREFORD FC have completed another signing in time for pre-season training.

Head coach Marc Richards has swooped for Welsh left-back Rhys Davies, 18, after his exit from League One side Shrewsbury Town.

Davies is the son of ex-Hereford United centre-half Gareth and won the JPL National Cup playing for the Bulls under 15s in 2015-16.

Richards said: “Rhys has got a great career in front of him.

"He’s a young lad who has already amassed a decent amount of games at this level and he’s really hungry to come and succeed.

“He showed a great attitude when I met with him a couple of weeks ago and he’ll hopefully be a decent addition to the squad.”

Davies said: “It’s unbelievable. It’ll be a dream come true the first time I walk out onto Edgar Street. I can’t wait to get started.”

He made close to 30 appearances for Nuneaton Borough and Chippenham Town last season.

Hereford's signings so far have included experienced defender Martin Riley, keeper Brandon Hall, forward Reece Styche and winger Alex Bray.

They have also been linked with French attacking midfielder Fabien Robert, 30.

The former Forest Green Rovers player scored 10 goals in 23 games for Gloucester City last season as they beat the drop in National League South.

Robert was released by Rovers at the end of the season having joined from Swindon Town.
