Former Hereford United keeper Dan Lloyd-Weston has announced his retirement from playing football, due to injury at the age of twenty four.
Initially gaining youth experience at Crewe Alexandra and Stoke City, he started his scholarship career at West Brom, taking up a professional career at Port Vale and Cheltenham Town, then going on to AEL Kalloni in Greece, receiving MVP several times for his performances.
Dan joined Hereford United in 2013 playing 28 first team games in the 2013-2014 season, receiving several player of the match awards, an England ‘C’ call up for a match in Jordan and the much coveted Hereford United Fan’s Player of the Year award as well.
He was also noted for his two trials with Manchester United, his dominant style in the penalty area and ability to rapidly close down opposition attacking players.
More recently he was first team keeper at Southport FC and in January 2016 joined Gallivare Malmbergets in Sweden, as first team keeper and also made team captain.
