WITH a new team name, 3G pitch under construction and a host of different faces Hereford Pegasus are targetting promotion in their first Hellenic League campaign.

Pegasus have started their pre-season campaign in style with a 5-0 win at Ludlow, 11-1 victory at Knighton Town and a 5-2 win at Ruardean Hill on Tuesday night.

"It has been going well and is a bit different to last year, we have assembled a decent squad," said Hereford Pegasus joint manager Mike Panniers.

"We have made a lot of new signings. Last year we had a lot of youngsters but this season we have a bit more experienced squad.

"With the squad we have got assembled this year we want to be ideally in the top four promotion places.

"It's a one off chance for promotion due to restructuring and we hope to be one of them four. We are setting our aims quite high."

"We have been getting 25 or more for training which is really good for us and a nice change from nine or 10 and 99 per cent of them are signed.

"We have got some decent players including Rory Worthing from Lads Club and Zac Sirrell.

Pegasus travel to English Bricknor on Saturday and then Shawbury United on Tuesday.

Panniers has targeted next Thursday's trip to Westfields for the Dennis Hartland Trophy as a good test for his side.

He added: "The Westfields game will be good to see how far we have come."

Pegasus are still looking for a centre-back after losing previous captain Kyle Panniers for eight to 10 weeks with a broken collarbone.

Panniers' side will be playing under the name of Hereford Pegasus this season while their junior sides will remain under the name of Pegasus Juniors.
