Peter Beadle played alongside Hereford United boss Martin Foyle at Port Vale
PETER Beadle has played alongside Hereford United boss Martin Foyle — and still has aspirations to be a manager.
“When I finished playing professionally, I wanted to manage and coach at the highest level,” said Beadle.
“I got a fantastic oppportunity as the manager of Newport County — and I thought I did a good job there. But once I left and got into youth football I became a far better coach.
“This job is ideal for me and I love it but I still have aspirations to be a manager.
“I’ve told the lads not to settle for what they’ve got — always want more.”
Beadle played at Edgar Street 22 years ago when he was a youngster at Gillingham.
“I remember the Len Weston Stand — I was not used to seeing stands like that,” he recalled.
“I was around 19 when I played here and the ground hasn’t changed very much since.”
He played up-front for seven months with Martin Foyle at Port Vale.
“When I saw this position and checked it out — I realised Martin was at Hereford.
“I hadn’t seen him or spoken to him for years. But he knew me a little bit. I couldn’t be working for two better people than Martin and Andy Porter.
“I love coming in every morning and working with the young players.
“Hopefully, I can help them with their first step on the ladder in a football career “I am animated and enthusiastic — I love coming to training — and that passes through to the players.”
He added: “I have to prove to the gaffer and chairman that we can develop young players at Hereford.”
