22 July 2017 : Trialist Keeper Leaves Hereford Amidst Interest From Glovers And Exiles
Yeovil Town trialist Oliver Wright has left Hereford, despite only having been on their books for a month. There had been a question mark over his status when the former Swansea City academy goalkeeper joined the club on trial for Wednesday evening's pre-season friendly at Llanelli Town, with the 22 year old having only just left Merthyr Town for his move to Edgar Street. Now Hereford have confirmed that he's moved on again, and that on top of interest from the Glovers, he also has fellow League Two side Newport County after his services.

Wright played his second game for Yeovil in Saturday afternoon's match against Frome Town, replacing Jonny Maddison midway through the second half, but there is no firm indication that he is going to get a contract on the table to sign. Much would depend upon the fitness of first choice keeper Artur Krysiak, who has been out since Easter with a broken foot, although the Polish stopper was a spectator at Badgers Hill, and has been participating in limited training sessions.

Hereford manager Pete Beadle has confirmed that he needs to find a new goalkeeper, and told the Hereford Times that he expects Wright to be either a Yeovil Town or a Newport County player by the time the 2017-18 season starts:

"Ollie has had an offer from Yeovil to do a week there. I spoke to him on Thursday and they wanted him there until the end of the week. I then spoke to him yesterday to ask if he was with us and Yeovil wanted him to play in their game at Frome today (Saturday) and I think they were going to make a decision then. But he also said that Newport had made an offer. So either way, he was going to take one or the other. So unfortunately, Ollie has moved on, which is a shame. I'm disappointed because we worked hard to get him here and was looking forward to seeing him work. But I understand why he's done it because he wants to go back to first team football."
