With pre-season training commencing this week, Hereford FC’s Marc Richards has added to his squad, bringing in young left-back Rhys Davies following his departure from Shrewsbury Town.
Speaking to www.herefordfc.co.uk, Richards said: “Rhys has got a great career in front of him, he’s a young lad who has already amassed a decent amount of games at this level and he’s really hungry to come and succeed.
“He showed a great attitude when I met with him a couple of weeks ago and he’ll hopefully be a decent addition to the squad.”
Rhys, whose father Gareth was a formidable centre back at Edgar Street in the early 90s, is delighted to have signed for the side he supports. “It’s unbelievable,” the youngster told the official Hereford FC website. “It’ll be a dream come true the first time I walk out onto Edgar Street, I can’t wait to get started.”
He made close to 30 appearances in senior football last term for Nuneaton and Chippenham and says that he is coming to Edgar Street with the desire to be playing week in week out.
“I’m coming here to play, just because I’m a young boy, some people might think I’m not going to play every week, but my aim is to be the best player every single week, I want to be playing week in week out, I want to be having massive impacts on games.”
