HEREFORD defender Dan Preston is to join a Midland Footbal League club on a dual registration deal in order to gain match fitness.

The 26-year-old former Hereford United player has only started six games for the Bulls after joining the club in August.

Hereford will retain his registration and Preston will remain available for the club as and when required.

  • Bromsgrove Sporting have since said they have signed Preston and he may be available to play for them against Stourport Swifts tomorrow.

"Dan is a no-nonsense, strong, dominant defender that has played at a very good leve," Bromsgrove manager Paul Smith told the club's official website.

"He fits the bill perfectly.

"I must thank Pete Beadle at Hereford for helping me push the deal through.”
