Barry Town United’s Callum Sainty moves to Non-League side Hereford
Callum Sainty will be playing in the Vanarama National League North next season after making the move from Barry Town United.
The 22-year-old was watched over the last year by the Hereford management staff and have since moved for the tricky midfielder.
Sainty will link up with former Barry Town United loanee Jamie Bird who spent time at Jenner Park Stadium when he was at Cardiff City.
He is Barry’s second summer exit after James Demetriou left the club to return to Australia with Olympic.
Sainty was part of the Barry Town United side which won promotion to the Welsh Premier League back in 2017 after joining from Caerau Ely. He scored his first top-flight goal against Carmarthen Town back in September.
“He’s a great age and a very good prospect, if he can fulfil perhaps 75% of his potential then he will be a very good player.” said Hereford boss Pete Beadle to HerefordFC.co.uk
“He’s a great age and a very good prospect, if he can fulfil perhaps 75% of his potential then he will be a very good player. He’s a raw talent, but it’s exciting to get him in, and if he can continue to develop as he has over the past couple of years then we will have a decent player on our hands.
“He’s quite tall, very athletic and also versatile, he can play in midfield and also fill in at the back. He’s willing to learn and is looking forward to the challenge, myself and Jenks are really looking forward to working with him.
The club have however announced that they have penned a new three-year deal with Macron Store Cardiff, to produce their kit for the next three seasons.
