HEREFORD have signed former Football League goalkeeper Aaron Chapman ahead of the new season.

Following Curtin Pond’s decision to leave them club to drop back down the non-league football pyramid the Bulls have been searching for a new number one.

Chapman, aged 34, has had a journey football career and spent a stint of last season on loan at Boston United.

Covering for United’s injured first team goalkeeper Chapman made 11 appearances and kept five clean sheets in his last six matches.

Earlier in his career Chapman’s longest stint came playing for Accrington Stanley (60 appearances between 2016 and 2018).

He then moved to Peterborough United where he featured 32 times between 2018 and 2020.

However, in more recent years he has accumulated eight different clubs, including a spell in Scotland playing a handful of matches for Motherwell.

“Aaron brings a huge level of experience to us, as well as quality and personality,” said Hereford boss Paul Caddis.

“He has spent a good chunk of his career in the EFL and at full-time clubs, so we are really fortunate to get someone of his experience to the club.

“Aaron played an important role in Boston’s success last season, playing 11 games for them on loan – only losing once. He stands at 6ft 8 tall and will be a big presence for us.

“I am really pleased that Aaron showed a great hunger to join us and look forward to working with him.”
