Former Bull close to Europe

On the day that Hereford signed Martyn Giles, a defender who appeared in the Inter-Toto Cup for Carmarthen, it's another former United youngster who could be grabbing the headlines this evening. Nick Harrhy will be in action when Llanelli play against Gefle this evening at Stradey Park. Leading 2-1 from the first leg, in which Harrhy came off the bench to set up the equalising goal, a win for Llanelli this evening would see them progress to the second qualifying round of the UEFA Cup and one round away from the proper stages.

Harrhy played for Norwich and Bristol City before training with United. After a spell playing his trade in Australia, Harrhy returned to Edgar Street asking for training and appeared in United's defeat in the LDV Vans Trophy to Northampton played in November 2003. He came on in extra time, and looked as though he would make a name for himself after two decent efforts. Sadly for Harrhy, he missed a penalty in the shoot-out and The Bulls went out. Harrhy continued his journey around, with spells at Gravesend, Welling and Newport before finally finding his feet at Llanelli.

Meanwhile, Brian Smikle, who played for Hereford on work experience from West Brom during the 2004/2005 season has joined Kidderminster Harriers on a one year deal. The skilful winger was also loaned out by The Baggies to Halifax Town and was on the subs bench in the play-off final against Hereford.
