Hereford United: Rod McDonald signs for AFC Telford United

AFC Telford United have made their fourth summer signing by bringing in defender Rod McDonald after his departure from Hereford United.

Former Stoke City academy product McDonald, 22, scored four goals in 49 games for the Bulls, following his move to Edgar Street in January 2013.

Liverpool-born, 6ft 2ins McDonald comes from a footballing family.

His father Rod played up front for Walsall, Partick Thistle, Southport and Chester City in the 1990s.

Elder brother Clayton, 25, who previously played for Walsall and Port Vale, is looking for a new club after being released at the end of last season by Grimsby Town.

McDonald's arrival follows the signing of Jonathan Hedge, to replace long-serving keeper Ryan Young, Southport defender Steve Akrigg and Witton Albion winger Josh Hancock.

He is the second Hereford player to find a new club in 24 hours, following keeper Dan Lloyd-Weston's move to link up with ex-Bulls boss Martin Foyle at Southport on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, midfielder Mike Grogan, who joined from Cammell Laird last season and ended up as player of the year, has signed a one-year contract with the Bucks.
