WEYMOUTH has signed forward Brad Ash from Chippenham Town.
Pacy forward Ash, 25, joins the National League south team after scoring four goals in 14 games for the Bluebirds.
In the 2019/2020 season, Ash has scored once in 11 starts for Hereford, making 20 appearances in total.
Ash has National League experience with Boreham Wood, scoring five times in 22 games.
His form with his hometown club Weston-super-Mare in the 2015/16 season, where he scored 14 goals in 14 appearances, saw him transfer to Ligue 1 side Barnsley.
Although not a part of the Tykes’ first team, Ash was an important figure in Barnsley’s Under-21 team.
He netted a hat-trick against rivals Leeds United in a 3-3 draw, although Barnsley finished last in U21 Professional Development League Two North.

Barnsley loaned it to Weston-super-Mare for the 2016/17 campaign.
Ash responded with 19 goals in 34 games as the Seagulls finished 15th in the National League South.
Speaking to uptheterras.co.uk, Weymouth boss Brian Stock said: âHe’s a player I really love.
“He’s been successful before and has been spotted by Barnsley in the Football League and it shows he has quality.
âWhat I really like about him is his attitude and his application, in and out of possession.
“He’s a great goalscorer, he’ll give us a lot of energy and he fits the mold of how I want my team to play perfectly.”
Ash also played for England Colleges and England C.
Ash is the 11th rookie at Weymouth this summer behind goalkeeper Gerard Benfield, defenders Josh Leslie-Smith, Ben Morgan, Ollie Harfield and Calvin Brooks, midfielders Andy Robinson, Sean Shields, Cameron Murray and forwards Josh McQuoid and Brandon Goodship.
