NEW Hereford FC signing Jamie Bird says there's more to come from him once he gets himself fit.

The former Cardiff City player started for the Bulls in last week's HFA County Challenge Cup match at Westfields after having to wait three weeks for his international clearance to come through.

"I thought I wasn't that great in the first half but the second half was a bit better," said Bird,

"But there's more to come from me when I get myself fit and get into the starting line-up.

"I haven't been playing much lately because when I left Cardiff, I had a period of time when I was out.

"I'm a bit unfit at the moment, but hopefully I can get back fit and be out there with the boys."

Bird said it was frustrating having to wait for his chance.

"I wanted to go out there with the boys and start playing," he said.

"I was training with them every week but I was never getting game time on a Saturday because I couldn't because I had to wait for the clearance."

Bird signed for Cardiff when he was seven before signing a scholarship at 15.

A professional contract arrived two years later, but Bird was sent on loan to Weston-Super-Mare last season before being released by the Bluebirds in the summer.

The 19-year-old is a versatile player, but says he prefers to play in centre-midfield.

"I like to get at the ball and drive at people and make things happen," he said.
