Rod McDonald Was Signed From Nantwich

Rod McDonald

There's not much connecting Nantwich and Hereford who meet in the FA Trophy tomorrow.

The two clubs haven't played each other certainly in recent years.

But there have been a couple of players movements.

Perhaps the most memorable was when Hereford United signed Rod McDonald from Nantwich back in January 2013.

The Bulls are reported to have signed defender Rod McDonald.

The 20 year old left sided player leaves Nantwich Town after just over a year. He was previously a trainee with Stoke and spent a year at Oldham before moving into the non-league game with Colwyn Bay until former Bull Jimmy Quinn took him to Nantwich.

His father is the similarly named former Walsall forward, while brother Clayton is currently on loan at Bristol Rovers from Port Vale.
Later manager Martin Foyle commented about the signing.
"Rod caught my eye whilst playing for Nantwich and I was pleased to be able to bring him in last season. He's tall, got a good left foot, can tackle, and has shown he's got an eye for goal, and he also wants to play football."
