Greenslade departs Woodspring Stadium for Hereford
PUBLISHED: 17:33 28 June 2018
Left-back Danny Greenslade has left Weston-super-Mare Football Club to join National League North outfit Hereford.
The 22-year-old was courted by the Bulls midway through last season, but eventually rebuffed their advances after the Seagulls agreed a fee for the former Bristol Rovers man.
He was a pivotal part of manager’s Marc McGregor’s debut campaign in charge, playing in all 42 National League South games.
Greenslade scored three goals in 67 appearances for the Woodspring Stadium club, and he wrote on social media after his departure was announced yesterday (Wednesday): “It’s been a pleasure guys. Thanks to everyone at the club and I wish you all the best for the new season.”
A statement from the Seagulls said: “Everyone would like to thank Danny for his contributions to the club and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
The Mercury understands left-sided defender Jordan Williams, who played for Weston in the 2016/17 campaign, has joined the Seagulls for preseason training this week after spells with Dorchester Town and Mangotsfield United – though it is unknown if he will be offered a deal to fill Greenslade’s place ahead of the new season.

Bulls’ boss Peter Beadle is pleased to have secured Greenslade’s signature.
He told Hereford’s website: “We had an offer accepted for Danny last season, but because we were in the Southern League, he just didn’t want to drop down.
“His ambitions are to return to full-time football, and I think he felt that moving to the level we were at last season was perhaps too big a risk for him.
“With us now promoted and playing in the National League he sees this as a fantastic opportunity to progress his career, he’s got drive and ambition and we’re a good fit for each other.”
