MIDFIELDER Billy Murphy has left Hereford FC by mutual consent this afternoon.

The Leominster-based player is the latest to leave as Head Coach Marc Richards continues his re-structure of the Bulls.

A statement on the club’s official website said: “After seeing his first team opportunities limited of late, the club have agreed to release Billy Murphy by mutual consent.

“We’d like to thank Billy for his efforts since joining last December, and wish him well for the future.”

Murphy has signed for Halesowen Town.

"It was a decision as he realised he wasn't going to be in the squad on Boxing Day," said Hereford Head Coach Marc Richards.

"He has decided to part company so we're not going to stand in anybody's way."
