Jacob Jagger Cane and Jason Pope are the latest arrivals at Hereford, with the former Weston-super-Mare duo arriving in time for the return to pre-season training.
Jacob Jagger Cane is a combative central midfielder, whilst Jason Pope brings versatility, being able to play across a number of positions in defence and midfield.
Talking about the latest new arrivals Bulls Head Coach, Marc Richards, said: “Some people have referred to Jacob as one of the best pressers in the central midfield area, but he also comes with a lot of quality and pops up with goals.”
Talking about fellow new signing, Jason Pope, Richards added: “We’ve known about Jason for a few seasons, he’s got a lot of versatility, he can play centre back, right back, centre midfield, or even higher up the pitch.”
Both players are the product of a successful Exeter City Academy. Jacob Jagger Cane enjoyed loan spells with Poole Town and Weymouth before his departure from St James Park saw him arrive at Weston where he went on to become club captain and a firm fans’ favourite.
Jason Pope originally arrived at Weston Super Mare on loan from the Grecians, before making the move a permanent one at the start of the 2016/17 season.
Speaking to the official Hereford FC website Jacob Jagger Cane said that he was excited by the ambitions of Head of Football Tim Harris, and Head Coach Marc Richards. “Marc and Tim have sold me the ambitions of the club, they want to get back to full-time football, back to the National League and go from there. For a club this size it’s exactly what it should be.”
He says that Bulls fans can expect to see some committed displays in the heart of midfield from him: “You get 100% from me week in week out that’s guaranteed, but I want to add a few more goals to my game as well. Hopefully under Marc and the coaching staff I can do that.”
Jason Pope was also impressed by the ambitions and infrastructure at the club. “I met Rico at the training ground at Hartpury, seeing the facilities, seeing what the club has to offer the players in terms of training facilities, I knew that I really wanted it [the move] to happen. I’m really glad that I’m here now and can’t wait to get going.
Bulls full-back Danny Greenslade also played a role in convincing Pope to move to Edgar Street. “I spoke to Danny [Greenslade] quite a lot, he spoke about the fans, about how passionate they are and that’s something that I’m absolutely buzzing to be a part of.”
