HEREFORD United striker Ryan Bowman has agreed terms with York City and manager Nigel Worthington is looking to bring in at least one more striker for the 2013/14 season.

Bowman, 21, has become Worthington’s third close-season capture after the signings of Torquay forward Ryan Jarvis and Chesterfield midfielder Craig Clay.

The City boss is also currently in talks with two other frontmen, as he looks to bolster his attacking options next term.

On his striking quota, Worthington said: “We definitely want one or two more. We have the likes of Michael Coulson, Ashley Chambers and Ryan Jarvis who can mix and match but I would still like three or four out-and-out strikers to cover ourselves for injuries.”

Former Darlington and Carlisle striker Bowman netted 19 times for Hereford last season and Worthington was delighted that the Cumbrian-born player chose City over other suitors.

He added: “I am very pleased to get a young player of Ryan’s ability and potential.

“He’s also a good size at 6ft 2in and pretty quick across the ground, which is a plus.

“He’s a big, strong boy who can get a goal and, from the first time I spoke to him, any other interest was never an issue for him.

“His heart was set on coming to this football club and it’s great that we managed to stave off any competition.”

With Bowman under the age of 24, City will now need to pay a compensation fee to Hereford for his services and, if the two clubs cannot agree, an amount will be settled by a tribunal.

On that situation, Worthington said: “I will be working with the chairman in terms of the price we are willing to offer.

“Hopefully, they will be reasonable but, if not, we will go down the tribunal route.”
