STRIKER Mike Symons said he would love to play for Hereford FC next season but is yet to have discussions with the club about his future.

The 32-year-old who is one of the longest serving Bulls players in the current squad and has scored three league goals in 26 games since returning back from injury in November.

"I'm not in talks at the moment no and I think that will be done at the end of the season," said Symons after Monday's 1-1 draw at Altrincham.

"We will just have to wait and see. It has been the best four years of my football and I've loved every minute of it. So if the opportunity is to stay on in whatever way that is then I would love to. While the legs are still going, obviously I'm pushing on a little bit now.

"Obviously it depends on the way the club want to go and the decision of the management team as well. Playing for a club like this is fantastic with the crowd of 400 to 500 away from home is brilliant.

"That buzz you get from all of it is brilliant and it's something I would like to continue with."

Symons says that recent performances against Stockport County, AFC Telford United and Altrincham shows what the team can do ahead of next season.

"They are in the play-offs but we competed well against them and a draw was a fair result," added Symons.

We've shown over the last 10 to 15 games that we can play against the top teams, it's just when we get the lead we've got to manage the game a bit better and come out on the winning side.

"It has been a long season, there was change within the club and we've pushed on since then. Individually I had a tough start to the season and in the last five or six games it has been tough with a lot of games and minutes but as a group we've collectively dug in together which bodes well for Hereford next year.

"I think we have got a good balance of players and I'm sure there will be recruitment over the summer as well. Next year it looks good. We competed against Stockport and they are favourites to win the league.

"It will be great for the club next year and I think you're looking at a good finish next year. I can reel off the games we have dropped points and there were games where we are winning and conceded sloppy goals. If we cut them sloppy mistakes there is eight to 10 points a season and if you add that to our tally now you're probably only four or five points outside the play-offs."
