HEREFORD have landed the signing of former Scottish Premiership striker Miles Storey.

Storey, aged 27, from the West Midlands, has spent the last five seasons in Scotland but was persuaded to Bulls manager Josh Gowling to return home and sign for his side.

While at Swindon Town as a youngster Storey also played for England under-19s before moving north of the border.


Now Storey wants to show his 'pace and power' as a striker in the English game.

"I'm direct, my main position is as a number nine as a striker," said Storey.

"I play with pace and power. I've played on either wing as well in the last six or seven years.

"I like to use both feet, I can cross with both feet, shoot with both feet.

"My main thing using pace and power to try and make defenders nervous with bouncing balls.

"I just like to work hard and create a threat. I've got a few strings to my bow that I used to get the better of people.

"I'm confident I can score goals if I get opportunities using my abilities of pace and power.

"I know there are very good players in this league and I've played with some of them.

"I've played with Yan (Klukowski) and Tom (Owen-Evans) at Newport so know there's good quality here and I'm just looking forward to adding to it."

As a youngster Storey was loaned out to Salisbury City, Shrewsbury Town, Portsmouth and Newport County.

However, he impressed on a loan move to Inverness Caledonian Thistle scoring 11 in 30 matches.

Permanent moves to Aberdeen, Partick Thistle and Inverness Caledonian Thistle followed.

"I've enjoyed my time up there and played in the SPL and SPL Championship but I was always looking for an opportunity to come back home and try and get back to England," added Storey.

"It's been six years I've been up there, I've enjoyed it but I'm looking forward to getting back to England now.

"The last time I played in England was for Newport (County) when I was 19 or 20 and I still felt a little bit of a kid.

"I feel like I've grown up in Scotland, grown into my body, I'm more confident in myself and my abilities.

"I'm looking forward to coming back down here and showcasing it."

Storey said that the desire of the Hereford boss was key in completing the move.

He added: "I was in conversation with my former club about staying up there and I had a conversation with Josh (Gowling).

"From the first conversation I was really interested in the place.

"I've played for a couple of big clubs and this has got that big club feel.

"He really sold the place to me, it's a project to get the club back to where they want to be.

"I want to be part of that and help out. The manager's desire to get me in was a big thing as well.

"I felt wanted and it felt good, so it feels like the right thing to do.

"He di say to me from the first couple of conversations that he wanted to get his team ready for pre-season.

"He wants to build on the cup run in pre-season and be flying for the first game.

"I was more than happy to get it done and get myself back down here from eight hours away and concentrate on my football."
