The former Torquay striker came to Hereford with an impressive scoring record wherever he is played but saw his appearances limited last season after suffering an injury Connell's other clubs prior to Hereford were, Ipswich Town, Bournemouth, and Torquay United.

Christian Roberts played for Hereford during the 1998-99 season whilst on loan from Cardiff City.

rodge - I despair with you - we are in a transition at the moment - and hopefully with a new manager get back to winning ways - give it rest about penalties, you bore me on that subject. Good win for MK Donuts today.
