Pete Beadle said that he ‘doesn’t believe’ Hereford FC are in a financial situation to go full-time next season.
The Bulls will be competing against several teams who are full-time in the second tier of the non-league pyramid next season but Beadle says Hereford will ‘probably’ stay part-time. He is due to have meetings with the club’s board next week to discuss the budget for next season.
“Next year is going to be even harder again because we are going up to what I consider as close to a professional division as you are going to get,” said Beadle following his sides 4-1 victory over Kettering Town.
“Whichever league we going into it makes no different, in the North there are half a dozen full-time teams and looking at the South, Torquay are coming down and staying full-time and Woking are three days a week.
“So it’s going to get even harder and we’re going to have to work even harder and we will roll up our sleeves. Me and the staff are hugely ambitious and the club are and we have meeting this weeks with the board about next year’s budget and we want it to be as competitive as it can be.”
When asked if some players would go full-time Beadle replied: “No, I don’t think we are ready for that.”
