Hereford have completed the signing of experienced midfielder James Wesolowski.
The 31-year-old will be eligible for Saturday’s FA Trophy game against FC United of Manchester.
Wesolowski started his career with Leicester City, rising through the academy before signing a professional contract with the then-Championship side. He made 46 Championship appearances for The Foxes between 2005 and 2008. The Sydney-born player has also featured for Peterborough United, Oldham Athletic and Shrewsbury Town, making over 140 Football League appearances in total.
After picking up a serious knee injury whilst at Shrewsbury, he joined Guiseley in 2016 as he completed his rehabilitation. Most recently, he has been playing for Nuneaton Borough.
Now fully fit, James spoke to the official Hereford FC YouTube channel about what we can look to expect from him: “You know you’re going to get 100% out of me. I’m going to go out on that pitch and give everything I’ve got.
“I think I’m a leader in terms of working hard, and I hope that has an effect on the other guys as well. I hope I can help the boys out. It’s just a case of maybe just having that savvy at certain times in games. You switch off for a second and you’re punished.”
Head of Football Tim Harris also commented on James’ arrival: “James is the sort of player that we need; he’s very good in winning second balls and asserting his authority on the game. He’s got an awful lot of experience to ourselves so we’re delighted to get him over the line.”
