Hereford FC have announced their first signing of the Paul Caddis era, with Lassana Mendes signing from Bala on a 1-year deal subject to FA approval and international clearance. 

Bulls manager, Paul Caddis, had this to say: 

“Lassana will bring an abundance of enthusiasm to our squad this season. I have no doubts with his infectious character the fans will take to him instantly.

“He’s a hard-working wide midfielder with Europa league experience who will bring quality to us at the top end of the pitch. ‘Lass’ loves to excite supporters and I can’t wait to see him in action for our club. 

“He’s a player that you always want to be in your team and not up against you. His work ethic and reactions to win the ball back is something I find really refreshing to see from a forward thinking player so that shows he’s not afraid of hard work.

“Lassana has played 130 games in just over two and a half years which shows a robustness and reliability that will be vital this season.”

Lassana had this to say on his move to Hereford: “I am very happy and excited to play for such a big club and looking forward to work with a well-respected manager. I can’t wait to get started and to meet the fans and show them my hard work and dedication.”
