CLUBS are queuing up to take a look at Hereford United's teenage sensation Paul Parry.

The 19-year-old winger hit the headlines when he came within inches of giving the Bulls a sensational FA Cup win over Leicester City.

Now he hopes his performance on Saturday will enable him to get a chance of playing at a higher level.

Several clubs including Coventry City have already monitored the progress of Parry, who hit the post with a shot after a superb solo run in Saturday's game. He and team-mate Gavin Williams had a brief trial at Huddersfield Town last season.

The teenager said: "My ambition is to go on and play at the highest level I can.

"That is why I was delighted to perform like I did against Leicester. Hopefully there were a few people there watching.

"At the moment I am quite happy playing at Hereford, but I have got bigger ambitions to play higher up."

Parry, who comes from Chepstow, spent two years at Bristol City as a schoolboy before joining Hereford. He signed a professional contract in the summer after two years as a Youth Training Scheme player.

He said of his spell at Bristol City: "I didn't feel like I was going anywhere. I didn't grow at all and they wouldn't play me because they said my frame was too small.

"It was a big blow because coming from Chepstow, Bristol was the nearest football city just across the water. But I had to get on with it, keep my head up and try and find another club.

"I was at sixth form college and Graham Turner offered me a YTS, so I ditched that and came to Hereford."

He broke into the Bulls' first team last season and immediately made a big impact.

However, he was then struck down by glandular fever in the summer and missed the first month of this season.

"It really knocked the stuffing out of me. I felt I couldn't get out of bed because I was so weak.

"I am still not 100 per cent match-fit but I am getting there."

Director of Football Turner believes that defenders Chris Lane and Tony James and midfielder Williams could also attract attention from bigger clubs.

He said: "They are all 19 or 20 and they all have bright futures in the game."

Transfer-listed forward Craig Hanson, who was signed from Derby County, has attracted the interest of Dr Martens League Premier Division side Burton Albion.
