View Full Version : Bulls fuming at striker call-up

Hereford United manager Graham Turner has vented his anger following striker Stuart Fleetwood's late call-up to Wales' Under-21 squad.

The 20-year-old has been added to the squad for the European Under-21 championship qualifier against Turkey on Saturday.

Fleetwood received the call-up on Wednesday and Turner will now be forced to make changes to his frontline for the trip to Rochdale.

Turner will now be without his leading goalscorer at the weekend and the Bulls chief has spoken out against the ruling.

"I am livid," Turner told the Hereford Times.

"I think it is outrageous that he can be called up so late, on a Wednesday, when it is us who pay his wages.

"Particularly when he will probably end up sitting on the substitutes' bench."

Andy Williams and Allan Connell will now hope to be given the nod in Fleetwood's absence.
