HEREFORD FC have almost completed their summer business as they prepare for the new season.

The Bulls completed the signing of trialist Simeon Maye on Sunday ahead of their friendly with AFC Bideford.

The 24-year-old midfielder has previously played in the National League for Solihull Moors making over 20 league appearances.

Head Coach Marc Richards told the club's website following Sunday's 2-1 win over Bideford AFC: "Simone (Maye) I think again we saw glimpses of what he's got, great feet, energetic, he can get around the park, he can compete and I thought he did really well in there with (Jacob) Jagger-Cane."

The Bulls currently have one more trialist, believed to be former Macclesfield Town defender Jared Hodgkiss, along with youngster Liam Bishop hoping for a place in the side.

“He’s not bad so we will just see what happens with that one,” said Richards talking about the trialist.

Speaking about Bishop, Richards added: “I love his tenacity I think he just doesn’t stop working and shows good quality at times.

“We will just see. We have brought him away with us for the weekend so that shows him our feelings on him so early on.

“He hasn’t been with us since the start, he only joined us on the second or third session. He has shown real hunger and desire and shown some really good qualities."

Richards added that their squad is almost complete for the coming season.

He said: "We're not a million miles off but if there are any players out there that can improve what we have currently got we will always look to try and improve the squad.

“We’re not resting on our laurels. We are always looking for improvements in every area of the game.

"There is not necessarily room (in the budget) but in terms of how we would have to work it with the current squad then, that's why it's nice to have Tim (Harris) to lean on in that perspective."
