Gloucester in Green bid

Ryan Green is understood to be a Gloucester City target.

City, who have already snapped up two former Hereford players in the shape of Jennison Myrie-Williams and Marlon Jackson, have been tracking events surrounding the fans favourite at Edgar Street for some time.

Green, 38, was operating as a scout for Hereford after “taking a break from football” at the turn of the year, but has at no stage stated a desire to retire.

His wealth of experience and capability could add much to the Gloucester City squad, after their transition back to the National League North as, despite his age, the former Welsh International has more than proved his ability to compete with players almost half-his age.

The City manager Mike Cook remains tight-lipped about the potential move, but has been quick to acknowledge the backing he has received from the Gloucester Co-Chairman Alex Petheram regarding recent signings.

After capturing Jackson and Myrie-Williams today Cook said, “We are delighted to secure signings of quality and experience. I would like to put on record my sincere thanks for the support that Alex Petheram has given me. Without his backing these signings would not have happened.

Co-Chairman Alex Petheram said the club have thrown “the kitchen sink” at the third targeted player, believed to be Ryan Green.

“Cookie highlighted three key players that he wanted us to sign at the end of last season. We’ve fully backed the management team and I’m delighted to have today secured both Marlon and Jenno.

“We’ve thrown the kitchen sink, and more, to secure the third also, and we’ll know in two or three weeks on that one I hope.”

The experienced defender could therefore face some of his former colleagues in the National League North next season should this move work out for both parties.
