Hereford have snapped up Charlton goalkeeper Darren Randolph on a season-long loan deal.
The 21-year-old, a Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, remains behind the experienced Nicky Weaver in the pecking order at The Valley and Addicks boss Alan Pardew is willing to loan him out.
Randolph made two Carling Cup appearances for the Addicks last term before spending much of the season on loan at Bury.
He was recalled by Charlton boss Alan Pardew when Weaver picked up a one-match ban but his subsequent solitary league appearance against Southampton ended in disappointment when his gaffe gifted the visitors their goal in a 1-1 draw.
Randolph will help fill the void by the departure of Wayne Brown to Bury earlier this summer.
TrialMeanwhile, Hereford have handed a trial to former Brighton midfielder Paul Reid.
The 29-year-old Australian was told by previous Seagulls boss Dean Wilkins that his contract would not be renewed at the end of last season, although he did join fellow released players Gary Hart and Kerry Mayo in attending pre-season training under new manager Micky Adams.
However, while Hart and Mayo are hoping Adams will reassess their situations, Reid now appears set to continue his career elsewhere and has linked up with the Bulls.
