Hereford United's manager's role was 'perhaps too big a job' for Pete Beadle, claims Mark Ellis

NEW Hereford United consultant Mark Ellis has claimed that the manager’s role was perhaps ‘too big a job’ for Pete Beadle.

Beadle was the man who saved United from relegation from the Conference on a dramatic afternoon at Aldershot.

But United have since been expelled from the Conference for non payment of bills and have applied to join the Southern League.

“Perhaps he (Pete Beadle) could see it was a too big a job for him,” claimed Ellis, who has told the Hereford Times he is "laying the foundations for success".

“To come in here you need to have big shoulders.”

The Hereford Times understands the popular Beadle, who was a big fans' favourite, was never in the running to be United’s manager under the new regime of Tommy Agombar.

Beadle has now joined Sutton United and former Welsh international Steve Jenkins, who was his assistant, is manager of Merthyr Town.

Beadle and Jenkins also did a superb job with Hereford United's youth team, guiding the young Bulls to the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup.

Ellis, who is a football agent, said: “We have to assemble the group of players first and then bring in a manager.

“The previous managers have brought their players in and we are not bringing in players to be a jolly up.

“The manager has to buy into the mentality that we are creating.

“ If a manager thinks he is going to come in here and thinks he will bring in 10 players and all his mates, then that is not going to work.”

Ellis added: “I would not say it will be a big name but our phone has been inundated with people wanting the job and you need people who know the leagues.

“These are all League 2 and Conference players – we will be full-time. “

More bull****. Looking forward to meeting Ellis face to face. Think he might have to start watching his back when he step outs in the morning.

Please Please Hfd Times, keep these quotes coming from big shot Ellis. Not sure why he is even bothering with a manager, the man is clearly a genius. Not sure how much longer he can keep knocking back those premier league job offers. We are so lucky to have him.

The sentiments are ok, if he means them. Not sure we need to know the nuts and bolts of the selection process. The conditions of employment should be a matter between interviewer and interviewee. But if for instance a great manager with a proven track record turns up on the doorstep, and says that he can bring top class footballers with him, would that be classed as 'jollying up'? Followed by instructions on how to find the way out? I sincerely hope not.
I personally think we should at least give them a chance, I quite like the idea of us doing a Rangers NewCo up through the pyramid!

I am amazed at these comments. Anybody who saw the youth team play last season will realise how good a coach Pete Beadle was. When he took over the first team after Foyle left there seemed a better selection and playing policy. The young players he introduced made a great difference.
I was sad to see Beadle leave us, but he probably saw that his chances lay elsewhere. I don' blame him at all. Good luck to Pete in the future.

they're broke! they owe money all over the place and have just been expelled from the conference for non-payment of bills. Mark Ellis says they're not only going to stay fulltime but that they're going to get league 2 and conference players. there must be some alarm bells ringing somewhere surely.
