HEREFORD FC have signed young midfielder Harry Pinchard.

The 19-year-old, former Cardiff City midfielder has represented Wales at under-19 level.

He has signed after a successful trial with the Bulls after also having a trial with Manchester City last season.

“I’m 19 now and I want to be playing first team football," said Pinchard to the club's official website.

"If I can cement a place in the first team or chip in when I need to, I’ll be happy.

“It feels like it means more (first team football), even the friendlies, it means something. With the fans at Cheltenham it was probably the best experience I’ve been involved in.

"It was obviously a tough game but I felt like I learned a lot."

Bulls manager Gowling is excited to welcome the midfielder to his side.

Gowling added: “His quality is undeniable, he was at Manchester City on trial for a period, out in America and obviously Cardiff, he came in for a session with us last year and we were looking at him but he had the opportunity to go to Man City.

"He’s been brilliant, the game that we don’t want to talk about, the Cheltenham game, wasn’t great, but he was probably one of the stand out performers.

"He’s strong on the ball, he’s strong running at people.”
