FOOTBALL | Former Bulls player Kelsey Mooney returns to Edgar Street on loan from EFL side Scunthorpe United

Mooney made 20 appearances for The Bulls last season, scoring five times, with the former Aston Villa trainee forming a solid partnership with Lennel John-Lewis in attack during the second half of the season.

The young striker made a move to the Football League during the summer, signing for League 2 Scunthorpe United, but was recently made available for loan: “I’ve watched him and seen how he’s got on up there, and as soon as I saw he became available, I jumped at the chance to get him back,” said Bulls boss, Josh Gowling.

“Kelsey has been training full-time with Scunthorpe, playing against and training with very good players so I’m sure he’ll be an even better version of what he was when he was with us last year,” Gowling added.

The Hereford boss admitted that it’s been hard to bring in a striker for a number of reasons: “We’ve found it difficult to bring in a striker due to the Covid rules and issues surrounding loaning players. We also want to make sure that we bring in the right character, but Kelsey fits the bill perfectly.

“He knows the club, he knows the lads, he formed a really good partnership with Lenny last season and we know that he’s got a great work ethic. He’s a good finisher and has got a great attitude, so I’m really pleased to be able to bring him in.”
