HEREFORD midfielder Ben Pollock says he has come back lighter and feeling fit after a summer of preparing.

Injuries ruled the 23-year-old out for most of last season but he started in Hereford’s first pre-season game against Westfields scoring their second goal.

“Last season people who know me could see I was held back a little bit by my injuries and things like that and I couldn’t get around the pitch as much as I’d like to," said Pollock speaking to Keith Hall.

“In the back end of not last season but the season before I had to get a knee operation which was delayed by Covid.

“Last season was horrible for me as all I wanted to do was to get back playing and every time I seemed to get a bit of momentum something seemed to stop.

“Speaking to the physio he can see the change in me already that I’m a lot more fluid and I want to contribute going forward.

Pollock has yet to be given a contract with the Bulls this season but proved his versatility playing as centre half in their 3-1 win over Westfields.

“Personally it’s a position I can play and the gaffer knows that as well so it’s not a problem me dropping in there,” said Pollock.

“All over the pitch I think we have a really good level of experience. You looking around the changing room and you’ve got so much talent within the squad and not just the starting 11.

“I think this season, destiny is in our hands.”
