MARTIN Watson has stood down from Hereford's board of directors.

Watson was the Hereford United Supporters Trust (HUST) nominated director, but has decided now is the time to step down.

However, he will still remain as club secretary of the Bulls.

"Martin has made an enormous contribution during his time on the board and the number of hours he has put in at the club over the past two and half seasons is way beyond what could have been reasonably expected in a voluntary role," Hereford chairman Ken Kinnersley told the club's official website.

"He has offered assistance and support in many areas right across the club and has always been willing to be flexible about where his help has been needed and when.

‘While he is stepping down from the board, we are all pleased that he will be retaining his role as club secretary.

"This means he will continue with the football administration duties that he has carried out so diligently since taking on the role in 2015.

‘The decision about Martin’s replacement will be taken by HUST and therefore it is right for the trust’s board to communicate any news to their members and the wider supporter base as soon as they have an update."
