FORMER Hereford United loanee Dan Preston has returned to Edgar Street.

Now aged 25, Preston had two spells with United in 2010 and 2011 before playing for Teford and Tamworth.

He played with Rob Purdie at Tamworth.

Hereford FC manager Pete Beadle has further strengthened his defensive options by bringing in Dara O'Shea on loan until January.

The 18-year-old West Bromwich Albion product featured for the Baggies in the Premier League Asia Trophy during the summer and also played for their Under-23 side in the Football League Trophy last season.
