  • Craig Mawson

    CRAIG MAWSON (squad number 1): (Goalkeeper, born 16-5-1979, height 6'2'', 41 club appearances/0 goals) Former Morecambe goalkeeper Mawson now knows doubly what it is like to finish as a Conference runner-up but miss out on promotion as he previously suffered the same experience with the Shrimps. Signed from Oldham last October and made a sensational debut with three penalty saves as United eliminated League 1 Doncaster Rovers from the LDV Vans Trophy. Proved a reliable and agile shot-stopper whose talents were shown to the full in United's run-in when just two goals were conceded in the last nine matches. read more

  • Wayne Brown

    WAYNE BROWN (14): (Goalkeeper, 14-1-1977, 6'1'', no appearances) Former England non-international goalkeeper Brown will provide competition for Mawson between the posts, arriving on a season-long loan from last year's Conference champions Chester City. An impressive performer who made more than 250 appearances for the Deva Stadium club after signing from Bristol City, Brown was picked on seven occasions for the England National Game side and was a regular choice in Chester's first season back in the Football League. read more

  • Ryan Green

    RYAN GREEN (2): (Full-back, 20-10-1980, 5'7'', 73+10 substitute/2) Former Welsh international Green will be hoping to re-establish a permanent spot in the United side after injuries severely disrupted his campaign last time around and left him starting fewer than half the matches. A high-quality performer in attack and defence, Green began his career with Wolves and also played for Millwall, Torquay, Sheffield Wednesday and Cardiff City. He has three international caps and is the youngest player ever to have represented the Principality. read more

  • Andy Ferrell

    ANDY FERRELL (11): (Midfielder, 9-1-1984, 5'9'', no appearances) Energetic left-sided player who began his career with Newcastle United before moving on to Watford. Appeared a couple of times as a substitute for the Hornets in Carling Cup ties, scoring once, but was released at the end of last season. His all-action style caught the eye during the pre-season friendlies but his combative style of play is unlikely to help United's chances of retaining the Fair Play award. Can play in central midfield or on the left in midfield and defence. read more

  • Adam Stansfield

    ADAM STANSFIELD (9): (Forward, 10-9-1978, 5'11'', 43+11/25) Former Yeovil striker Stansfield can look back on his first season in Hereford colours with some satisfaction after cracking in a quarter-of-a-century of goals. Now fully over a broken leg sustained at Yeovil three seasons ago, Stansfield combined electric pace with ability in the air and powerful shooting to make him one of the Conference's most feared forwards. It was no surprise that he earned a place in the England National Game squad for the post-season tournament in Ireland. read more

  • Daniel Carey-Bertram

    DANIEL CAREY-BERTRAM (18): (Forward, 14-6-1984, 5'9'', 24+37/20) As Rob Purdie was the find of the 2003-4 season, so Danny Carey-Bertram came of age last year as he established himself as one of the division's most promising strikers. With pace to spare and an ability to finish with either foot, as well as in the air, Carey-Bertram will be looking to continue his rapid development in 2005-6. The wider world has already had a chance to see what he can do with his televised wonder strike from 25 yards in the play-off semi-final first leg at Stevenage. read more

  • Andrew Williams

    ANDREW WILLIAMS (16): (Forward, 14-8-1986, 6'1'', 3+4/1) The young striker will be hoping that first-team opportunities will be more plentiful this time around as he seeks to establish himself in the squad. Skilful and with a powerful shot, Williams has shown glimpses of the sort of potential that could ultimately see him follow his namesake, Gavin, and Paul Parry, two other products of the United youth factory, into higher-graded football. He has also shown some versatility in pre-season with an ability to play on the left of midfield. read more

  • Guy Ipoua

    GUY IPOUA (10): (Forward, 14-1-1976, 6'1'', no appearances) Big things will be expected of the Cameroonian who comes with a pedigree which includes spells at Atletico Madrid and Torino. A powerful, pacy runner with the ability to hold the ball, Ipoua is another who is well-known to United physio Wayne Jones after a spell at Gillingham. He has also played for Bristol Rovers, Scunthorpe, Doncaster Rovers, Mansfield and Lincoln as well as having a season with Scottish Premier League side Livingston. An excellent headed goal in his first pre-season start has only served to heighten expectations. read more

  • Graham Evans

    GRAHAM EVANS (12): (Forward, 16-6-1980, 5'9'', no appearances) Lively forward who should stimulate competition for places up front. Apart from a couple of years as a trainee with Aston Villa, has played his football in the League of Wales for Caersws where his tally of 131 goals made him the club's record scorer. A best season of 25 goals in 2000/1 saw him voted the league managers' player of the season. Impressed with his pace and willing running in pre-season, he also gave an early demonstration that he knows how to find the net. Represented the Wales semi-professional side. read more

  • Stacy Coldicott

    STACY COLDICOTT (4): (Midfielder, 29-4-1974, 5'11'', no appearances) Tough tackling central midfielder who looks set to anchor the midfield after the departure of Graham Hyde and in the early season absence through injury of Jamie Pitman. Redditch-born Coldicott began his career with West Bromwich Albion as a result of which his capabilities will be well-known to Bulls coach John Trewick who filled a similar role with the Baggies. After a brief loan spell with Cardiff City, he has spent the last seven years with Grimsby Town where he made almost 250 first-team appearances. read more

  • Sam Gwynne

    SAM GWYNNE (17): (Midfielder, 17-12-1987, 5'8'', 2+1/0) One of a crop of promising young players to come through the youth set-up, Gwynne first came to attention in last season's warm-up games and earned his first starts in minor cup ties during the campaign. A skilful midfielder, big things will be expected of Gwynne if his development continues at the same pace this time around. read more

  • Simon Travis

    SIMON TRAVIS (3): (Full-back, 23-3-1977, 5'10'', 57+4/3) Travis' powerful forward runs were a feature of Hereford's attacking play last season as he surged down right or left with equal facility. But his remarkable pace was no less of an asset in defence and won him a call up to the England National Game squad at the end of the season. It is to be hoped that the former Torquay, Telford, Forest Green and Stevenage man will make a rapid recovery from a hernia problem which has been causing him discomfort since January. read more

  • Alex Jeannin

    ALEX JEANNIN (20): (Full-back, 30-12-1977, 6'0'', no appearances) Frenchman Jeannin will fill the gap vacated by the transferred Mark Robinson on the left-side of the Hereford defence and possesses the flair to add substantially to the Bulls' attacking power. Strong in the tackle, he will also prove a major asset at dead-ball situations with the ability to deliver a dangerous corner-kick with his left foot. Jeannin, who has previous experience with Troyes in France, Darlington and Bristol Rovers, usually seemed to do well against the Bulls when he played for Exeter City. read more

  • Tony James

    TONY JAMES (6): (Centre-back, 9-10-1978, 5'11'', 295+9/19) Two seasons ago, critics such as Peter Shreeve were describing the United skipper as the best defender in the Conference. Last season, however, a pre-season disrupted by injury was the start of a campaign where James often struggled to reproduce his best form. Ironically, just as he seemed to be getting his game together, a serious ankle injury effectively ended his season. At his best, the former West Bromwich Albion trainee is an essential member of the Hereford line-up, not least for his unflappable ability to convert penalties. read more

  • Peter's Cathedral recital

  • Tamika Mkandawire

    TAMIKA MKANDAWIRE (5): (Centre-back, 28-5-1983, 5'11'', 66+1/8) The success story of last season, Malawi-born Mkandawire is now one of the first names to be written down on Graham Turner's team sheet. Pace and an ability to read the game made his choice in the Non-League Paper's Conference team of the year no surprise, particularly as he seems to have cut out the occasional reckless tackle which brought a little cluster of cards. Another former West Bromwich Albion trainee, Mkandawire, as well as bottling up opposing forward lines, also proved a danger going forward, picking up seven goals during the campaign. read more

  • Dean Beckwith

    DEAN BECKWITH (28): (Centre-back, 18-9-1983, 6'3'', no appearances) A powerfully-built central defender, Beckwith will already be remembered by Bulls fans after depriving them of two points with a headed goal for Dagenham & Redbridge in a televised fixture while on loan at the Victoria Road club. He began his career with Gillingham, when he became well known to Bulls physio Wayne Jones, then the Gills assistant manager, but managed only two substitute appearances during his time at the Priestfield Stadium. read more

  • Jamie Pitman

    JAMIE PITMAN (8): (Midfielder, 6-1-1976, 5'9'', 186+13/18) The only current member of the squad who can recall what it was like to play for Hereford in the Football League, Pitman's combative performances in the centre of midfield have endeared him to the United faithful. His commitment to the Bulls' cause was such that his energetic displays were only slightly hampered by a shoulder weakness which saw the joint regularly dislocate. It is to be hoped that a close season operation will have solved this problem and the former Swindon, Yeovil and Woking midfielder will soon be back to his best. read more

  • Jon Brady

    JON BRADY (7): (Winger, 14-1-1975, 5'9'', no appearances) Australian winger with the ability to go past defenders and provide a penetrating cross, as seen in the Stevenage Borough equaliser in the play-off semi-final first leg last season. Has already impressed in pre-season with his ability to set up goals for the forward line and also find the net himself. Began his career in England with Hayes but subsequently went on to play for two Conference-winning sides at Rushden & Diamonds and Chester. Has also represented Woking and Stevenage. read more

  • Craig Stanley

    CRAIG STANLEY (15): (Midfielder, 3-3-1983, 6'0'', 59/6) The strong-running former Walsall and Telford midfielder was absent from the United line-up on just one occasion last season, operating either in the centre or on the left of the midfield unit. His enthusiastic and energetic running, bringing surging forays from midfield which often ended with a powerful strike on goal, were one of the features of his play but Stanley now needs be more consistent in his passing as he seeks to build on the improvements of last season. read more

  • Rob Purdie

    ROB PURDIE (21): (Midfielder, 28-9-1982, 5'9'', 82+37/14) After being the most improved player of the season in 2003-4 when he forced his way into the England National Game set-up, the last campaign turned into one of disappointment for the skilful midfielder. An injury in the previous season's play-off semi-final hampered him through pre-season and it was only after Christmas that he began to show some of his true form. The former Leicester City trainee now needs to be a more regular goal-scorer in addition to showing his undoubted talents on a more consistent basis. read more
