Summers To Join Paulton?

Centre-back Nathan Summers is said to be considering joining fellow Southern League Division One South and West side Paulton Rovers.

In article on their official website yesterday, he's named as a 'transfer target' who has held 'more talks' with manager Tony Ricketts about a possible move to Winterfield Road. 

"Nathan fell out of favour at Hereford towards the end of last season," Ricketts told the Paulton OS.

"Although he has been offered a new contract at Hereford, he and I are unsure that he will be a regular starter so a move to Paulton could benefit! 

"He is a 3rd year student at Hartpury and obviously finance comes into the equation, with this being the biggest stumbling block."

Summers had a month-long hiatus from the Bulls last season, joining step 3 side Frome Town in November in search of more regular first team football. 

In an interview with the Hereford Times on his return to Edgar Street in December, Summers explained: "The way this club is being run at the minute is something I want to be a part of.

"It's a good changing room and the boys are good lads.

"It's exciting to be around."

Rovers expect a decision from the 20-year old early next week.
