With the Bulls’ second signing of the summer Hereford FC have announced the capture of the former Welsh U-19 international winger Alex Bray after his release by Championship side Rotherham United.

Bray, now 23, was an academy player at first Swindon Town and then Swansea City before gaining Football League experience in loan spells at Plymouth and Forest Green Rovers.

Often regarded as an “old-fashioned” winger it is hoped he can provide Hereford with much needed pace and trickery down the flanks.

Bray featured for both York City and Weston-Super-Mare at National League divisional level last term, and has signed a contract at Edgar Street until the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

Speaking to the official Hereford FC website, Alex says that he hopes to bring an exciting brand of attacking football to Edgar Street.

“I like to think I’m quick and quite direct, I put in a lot of crosses and have a lot of shots.

“I’m still young, but I think the experience I’ve got through the levels I’ve played will help me and help the other boys here as well.”

Bulls Head Coach Marc Richards says he feels Bray will add an extra dimension to Hereford’s play

“Alex will offer us something that we’ve not really had before. He’s got electric pace, can be an old school winger, and out and out wide player, but can score goals as well. We have high hopes for him and I’m delighted to have got him on board.”
