FORMER Welsh Premier striker Chris Sharp is leaving AFC Telford United to join rival Blue Square Premier outfit Hereford United.

Sharp, 26, will move to Edgar Street in time New Year for a fee of around £3,000, considerably less than the Bucks paid to The New Saints when the player moved in August 2011.

"We received an approach from Hereford and, once it was established that the player wished to move on, it was important to get the deal done," says Telford chairman Lee Carter.

Sharp only recently returned to the Bucks' ranks following a hernia operation in the summer and scored 12 goals from 37 (+8) appearances for the club.

The son of ex-Everton and Scotland player and Bangor City manager Graeme, he started his Welsh Premier career with Rhyl, but missed the whole of league season 2006/7 after breaking a leg in the Lilywhites' Uefa Cup campaign.

Despite recovering to return to action in September 2007, he was released from Belle Vue the following summer by mutual consent and signed for Bangor City. 

The leading scorer at Farrar Road in 2008/9, he left in January 2010 to join TNS and has a career total of 62 WPL goals from 86 (+32) appearances.
