HEREFORD FC have signed another former Scottish Premiership player as manager Josh Gowling further bolsters his side.

Former Stockport County, Kidderminster Harriers and Inverness Caledonian Thistle midfield James Vincent has signed for the Edgar Street side, with Gowling saying he will bring a "winning mentality" to his side.

He described Vincent as a winner, adding: “He’s had a very successful career up in Scotland and he will bring that winning mentality to the team.

"When recruiting this year our sole focus was on elevating this team to the next level and ‘Vinny’ certainly does that.

“He will get on the ball in any area and he will bring that extra experience in the middle of the park that we lacked at times last year.”

Vincent joined Stockport aged just eight, before making his first-team debut as a substitute in a 1-0 win over Brentford on the last day of the 2007-08 season.

He left in May 2011, joining Conference National side Kidderminster Harriers, where he met Josh Gowling, before moving to Scotland two years later to join Inverness.

After a spell at Dundee, he returned to Inverness.

Speaking to the Hereford FC website after agreeing his new deal, Vincent, 31, said: “I played with Josh at Kidderminster so I know what he’s about, I know the personal standards he sets, he’s always been a true professional so I’m looking forward to playing for him.

“He speaks very highly of the club and the way he wants to go about his business, it was something that I thought was really good to get involved in and I just can’t wait to get going.

“I always enjoyed playing at Hereford, it’s such a good stadium, when I’ve played it’s been packed out and it’s such a good atmosphere.”

Vincent joins striker Miles Storey, another former Inverness player, at Edgar Street for the upcoming season. He is the 13th player to agree a deal.
