HEREFORD football legend Ryan Green is looking to give something back to the city by helping the next generation of stars.

Defender Green played almost 400 matches at Edgar Street during spells for Hereford United and then the reformed Hereford FC.

Despite having his Hereford testimonial last summer Green has remained playing across the city at Westfields.

Starting his career at Wolves the Welsh international also had spells at Millwall, Bristol Rovers and Sheffield Wednesday along with a host of other clubs.

However, he was always drawn back to Hereford and says he wants to give something back now with coaching sessions held at the UITC Football Training Grounds, Victoria Park.

"Hereford as a city has given me so much during my time," said Green.

"I have played football in the city for 11 years, I love the people and I would like to give something back.

"I would like it to be a long term thing if there is enough interest to keep it going. I always want Hereford in my life. I would move to Hereford and I'm glad it's only an hour away from Cardiff."

Green will be starting with individual and small group sessions this week complying with the Government's social distancing guidelines.

He is also holding taster sessions combining 'fun, fitness and football' on Saturday, June 20, costing £5.

The times of the sessions are: Under sevens (10am-11); Under 11’s (11.30am-12.30pm); Age 11 and overs (1.30pm - 2.30pm).

Spaces in each session is limited to five to comply with social distancing guidelines.

"I'm looking at coaching one or two days a week in Hereford and hopefully it will go down well," added Green.

"UITC have been absolutely fantastic and have offered me their facilities which is absolutely unbelievable, so credit to them for doing that.

"I've got my first session on Wednesday so I'm looking forward to getting out there and give people advice and coaching.

"There will be a range of coaching available from one to one, two to one up to groups of five sessions.

"We will have all the social distancing measures in place. It doesn't matter what level you are, whether you are starting off or part of a youth team.

"Sessions can be enjoyable or more intense to suite.

"I've been there and done it in football. Playing from the age of 15 I'm still going so have picked up quite a bit of knowledge along the way.

"I want to teach people the game and how to show the best attitude, all the things I should have done when I was younger."
