Mustapha Bundu produced excellent performances throughout the competition including a hat-trick against Sporting Khalsa for Hereford FC in February.
They won the 2016 Midland League Premier Trophy following their 4-0 victory at Coventry Sphinx on Monday.
The club entered the English ninth tier division in the 2015–16 seasons and won it notching 105 points in 41 games with a goal difference of 103.
They will play next season in the 22-club Southern League Division One South and West.
Bundu, who came to England through the Craig Bellamy Foundation and attends Hartpury College in Gloucestershire, played a pivotal role as the club won promotion at the first attempt.
He has been exceptional for Hereford FC. He was born in Freetown and in 2010 was one of the talents from the Craig Bellamy Foundation in Sierra Leone, a charity which offers underprivileged children in Sierra Leone the chance to realise their potential through football and education.
Bundu’s talent was recognised in the UK a year later, and was invited to train with Cardiff City’s U15s squad and also had summer spells at Liverpool and Manchester City.
He has since gone on to prosper with Hartpury College, where a number of Football League clubs are continuing to assess his performances.
He was also selected for England Schools Under-18 team last season and is being tipped to have a bright future.
