Gwynne gets his first League start for Bulls

Hereford United manager Graham Turner gave Sam Gwynne, pictured earlier this season, his first League Two start this afternoon. The local lad played on the wing in place of Lionel Ainsworth who came on for Watford as a sub late in their game.

Keith Hall, reporting for BBC Hereford and Worcester, thought Gwynne was a bit nervous to start.

"I thought he had an excellent debut. He didn't look over-awed at all. It was nice to see a Hereford born player in the Hereford side."

Coach John Trewick thought Gwynne could be pleased with his performance.

"He's done very well. A different type of player to Lionel. You get different strengths from Sam. Probably a little bit nervous for the first ten, twenty minutes but he's done very well for himself. I'm pleased for him.

"He's worked very well in training. Everybody likes to see a local lad doing well. All credit to him."
