Hereford FC have completed the permanent signing of 26-year-old striker, Rowan Liburd.

Liburd has scored 14 goals in league and cup for Guiseley this season and arrives at Edgar Street on a deal that will run until the end of the 2019/20 season.

Speaking about his new signing, Bulls Head Coach, Marc Richards, said: “I first noticed Rowan when I watched Guiseley back at the start of December. He was playing in their FA Cup game against Fleetwood and was the player that I thought would cause us the most problems. He was their main threat and I couldn’t help but think that he’s exactly the type of player I’d like to bring in here.

“Rowan will offer us something that we haven’t already got. He can be a big target man if needed, but in all honesty, he’s much more than that. He’s quick, powerful and knows where the goal is, so I’m really excited that we’ve managed to bring him in.

“We’ve been searching for a frontline striker for a while now, but right from the outset Tim and I said we didn’t want to bring in just anyone. We wanted someone who would come in and add something new to the squad, and also someone who would fit in and have the right attitude, the right character and, ideally, a bit more experience.

“We were willing to be patient to get that, even though we completely understand why supporters have been desperate for news of a signing like this.

“Rowan is an intelligent lad, he’s a really nice guy, and he’s also got the experience of playing at this level and above. He knows the game well and I think he will be a great addition to the squad.

“I’m really excited that we’ve managed to get this deal done and can’t wait for him to get started in Bulls shirt.”
