Hereford FC have appointed Tim Harris as the club’s first head of football.
It signals a restructure at the Vanarama National League North newcomers following the sacking of the highly successful manager Pete Beadle last week. Former Newport County and Gloucester City boss Harris will start his role with immediate effect and will work with the club’s board to recruit a new head coach.
Harris said: “I am absolutely delighted to be given the opportunity to help progress the club. I am under no illusions about where the club currently stands and what is required in the short and long-term for its continued success.
“My father and my uncle were big Hereford United fans many years ago. They used to take me and my cousins along regularly when I was a boy, so I do understand what this club means to the fans and where they want it to be.
“No one is saying anything in life is easy, but I have personally experienced some great times in my football career, with several good FA Cup journeys, championships, promotion play-off winners twice and two Wembley appearances. What I can assure Bulls supporters is that I can never be accused of a lack of effort, as I will give everything I can to help this club progress to where it deserves to be.”
