Adam Davies Joins Hereford

Merthyr Town have reported that 22 year old defender Adam Davies has joined Hereford FC.

Merthyr born Adam joined the Martyrs in summer of 2014 when he followed former manager Steve Jenkins from Monmouth Town and can play in either full back position. Adam is a product of Cardiff City academy and won Welsh League Division 1 title with Monmouth in 2013/14. He played a key role in the club’s Championship winning season.

He made 115 appearances for the club, scoring 1 goal. Last season Adam scooped all of the player of the season awards, helping the club win the Red Insure Cup

Hereford contacted Merthyr Town last week to advise that they were interested in signing Adam, and they held talks with Adam over the weekend. Our manager Gavin Williams also held talks with Adam to try and keep him at Merthyr, but Adam has informed Gavin he has agreed terms with Hereford and decided to move on.

Manager Gavin Williams said “It is a major blow to lose Adam. We fought hard to keep him in the summer when there was interest in him, and we have tried to keep him again but he has decided to leave. For the last three seasons now we have lost our player of the year. It is frustrating because it makes it difficult to build a squad to challenge for the league, but unfortunately that is the nature of football, especially non-league football.”

Hereford will have to wait for international clearance before Davies can play.

The Bulls have also said on Twitter that there will be news of another new arrival over the coming hours, once confirmed by the league.
