Players Start Training Tonight

New signing Kieran Thomas captained Gloucester during their preseason friendly against Hereford last summer
Hereford return to training this evening ahead of the first preseason friendly a week on Saturday.

It's only been seven weeks since Hereford played their last game of the season. On Early May Bank Holiday they beat Lads Club 6-0 in the final of the HFA County Challenge Cup at Edgar Street.

There have been a handful of new arrivals at Edgar Street over the break, with Lewis Hall, Callum Sainty, Kieran Thomas and Harry White agreeing terms.

Lewis Hall
The 22-year-old has spent the last three seasons at Gloucester City meaning he has over 100 Step 2 appearances under his belt. When he signed earlier this month, manager Pete Beadle described him as a left-sided player who can play in defence or midfield.

Callum Sainty
Unknown to many, 22-year-old Sainty arrives from the Welsh Premier League after spending two seasons at Barry Town United. Known as a tall, powerful midfielder, Beadle said Sainty is a raw talent and a very good prospect.

Kieran Thomas
Former captain of Gloucester City, the 23-year-old defender is a product of Cheltenham Town's Academy and comes to Edgar Street having made 80 appearances at Step 2 with the Tigers. Thomas is another player who Beadle's described as versatile, able to play at right-back and in midfield, a strong and solid player who is very good technically. 

Harry White
A different striker to the irreplaceable John Mills, 24-year-old White spent last season with National League side Chester. He scored five goals in 29 appearances last season. Described as a 'rough diamond', with great attitude and very good all-round game, Beadle says it’s up to Hereford to help him grow into the player they know he can be.

On top of these fresh faces, 14 players from last season are also staying on. These include last season's captain Jimmy Oates, goalkeeper Martin Horsell and returning midfielder Calvin Dinsley.
