HEREFORD FC chairman Andrew Graham has thanked former Bulls striker Mike Symons for his ‘total commitment’ to the club for over four years.

Speaking to the club’s website following the news that Symons has left the club to join Weston-Super-Mare, Graham said: “I remember when Mike first arrived in November 2015, he instantly added another option for us and that proved to be vital as the season progressed.

“He was instrumental in helping us not only gain promotion in that first season but also the following promotions.

“Ever since his arrival Mike has given the club his total commitment which was clear to see on the pitch week in week out, he was a firm favourite here and it is testament to his ability and character that he remained the last member of the 2015/16 squad.

“All good things must come to an end and it is time for Mike to take the next step in his career. I, for one, am sorry to see him go and I am sure you will all join me in thanking him for all he has done for us and wish him and his family well for the future.”
