GOALKEEPER Curtis Pond is one of six players who it has been announced are leaving Hereford FC.

Pond moved up two divisions to play for Hereford last season and played throughout the league campaign.

“(Curtis) Pond has suggested work schedule has made it difficult for him to commit and will sign for a club closer to home which will also earn him a financial promotion which we are unable to compete with,” Hereford boss Paul Caddis told the club’s website.

“That’s the nature of the world and we wish Pond the absolute best.”

Last year’s skipper Nathan Cameron is also leaving the club this summer, as are fellow defenders Ollie Southern and Jordan Cranston.

Caddis added that Yusifu Ceesay has ‘aspirations’ of playing abroad and wants to seek other opportunities.

Meanwhile, Tope Obadeyi is also listed by the club as leaving.

Caddis added: “Tope Obadeyi has been very open and honest and respectful in making it clear he has loved his time at the club and would be keen to stay however is looking at his options out there at the moment.”

Mark Derricott and Lassana Mendes are currently in talks with the club. Caddis states that the Bulls have signed another player, but they cannot be announced until their current deal expires.

Hereford have announced that they will travel to Halesowen Town for a pre-season friendly on Saturday, July 27.
