Weston striker Gethyn Hill will spend the next month on loan at Southern League Premier side Hereford FC, the club has announced today (Tuesday).

The 22-year-old has barely featured under new manager Marc McGregor and so is hoping to gain some match fitness under Hereford boss Peter Beadle.

Hill first joined the club back in January after former head coach Scott Bartlett agreed a fee with Cinderford Town for the pacy forward.

A spokesman for Weston Football Club said: “Gethyn is a very talented footballer who needs to play regularly and he is going to do this at an extremely good club.

“Chances for him have been limited so far this season, but by doing this it will help him come back to us in good form.”
