Hereford manager Josh Gowling has thanked Daniel Jones for his efforts at the club, after the experienced left-back was officially announced as leaving this week.
Jones, 34, joined the club last summer but has departed in order to be closer to his young family in Dublin.
Gowling told Hereford’s website: “Dan has been a credit to himself and this club since he arrived and we’re really sad to see him go, but he’s a real family man and he needs to be with them. As a family man myself, I totally understand.
“When we first signed Dan, I knew his lad was ill, but Dan didn’t really let on exactly how ill he was straight away, he just focused on his work. He trains hard and plays hard and he was a really positive influence in the dressing room.
“He would often stay late at training, putting the extra work in and helping the younger lads as well. We all love football, but family is the most important thing, and although we’d have loved Dan to stay, there was no way we could stand in his way.
“He’s made the right decision.”
