Gloucester City have announced the joint signings of two former Hereford players today, with the arrival of both Jennison Myrie-Williams and Marlon Jackson.
Manager Mike Cook is delighted about the moves for the former Bulls’ players, “They are fantastic signings for the club. It will give us options up front and improve competition for places. We identified these players that fitted our profile in forward positions.
“This has been a long drawn out process and we are delighted to secure their quality and experience. We still need to go on and strengthen the squad and will be looking at a number of players during training and pre-season games.”
On linking up with City, Jackson, 28, said, “I’m really excited to join Gloucester and get to work. I’ve been really impressed with the ambition showed by the club. It’s one that matches my own and I can’t wait for the season to start!”
Jackson left Edgar Street to link up with Weston-Super-Mare in the National League South shortly after Peter Beadle was sacked at Hereford last term, but could not prevent the Seagulls’ slide towards relegation.
Myrie-Williams, 31, also teamed up with Weston in similar circumstances as Jackson following his departure from Edgar Street, and scored two goals in 18 appearances for the Seagulls.
Both players will no doubt be keen to impress when Hereford face Gloucester in the Vanarama National League North in the upcoming season.
