HEREFORD FC have signed midfielder Richard Whittingham who trialled for the Bulls during the summer.

Hereford manager Josh Gowling has added him to the squad ahead of tonight’s game against Gloucester.

Whittingham is a former Hemel Hempstead, Hungerford and Whitehawk midfielder.

“He played a few times in pre-season and has trained with us on a number of occasions, but we were unable to bring him in at the time,” Gowling told the club's official website.

“He’s a ball playing midfielder who has looked lively in training and he will add some more strength and depth to the squad.”

Whittingham will be available for selection for tonight’s game against Gloucester City.
