HEREFORD FC have had applications for the vacant manger/head coach role from people at a ‘higher level’ than the National League North, said Tim Harris.

The interim manager watched as his side recorded back-to-back victories with a 1-0 victory at Blyth Spartans today thanks to a Mike Symons first half goal.

When asked about how many applicants the club has had? Harris added: “We’ve had quite a number.

“I’m not going to get into it to put an actually figure on it. We’ve had a lot applicants. There are people who have come from a higher level than we’re talking at this present moment in time and people coming from this level.

“There are also people coming from a lower level who chuck their hat in the ring and hope that they’re going to be lucky to manage a club the size and stature of Hereford.

“It’s important that in this transition we pick up points and I’m delighted that we’ve picked up six points. Getting points in the National North, it’s a crazy league and to get points on the board at this stage is fantastic.

“I’m delighted for all the players.”

When asked if he will be in charge for the match against Brackley next weekend? Harris said: “There has to be a process.

“I can’t answer that at the moment. If required yes, if not then it’s not a problem for me I’m not looking for the job or nothing.”

The Bulls have now got a week until they host Brackley in their next home match at Edgar Street.

Harris added: “We’ve got a lot of work to do behind the scenes in terms of looking at the new appointment and keeping the boys ticking over.

When asked how much he will be involved in looking at the candidates for the vacant Head Coach role?

Harris said: “Ultimately it’s the board’s decision to appoint a manager or head coach wherever they want to go.

“That was the same when they appointed Marc (Richards). I’ll look at it and I know a lot of people in the game. I’ve been in the game a long time, that’s why I’m old and grey.

“When all said and done ultimately it will be the board’s decision.”

Harris also applauded the away supporters who travelled to Blyth, he added: “I want to say how pleased I was with the away support today.

“It’s a trek and a half and they were fantastic today.”
