HEREFORD FC have announced Steve Burr as an assistant to interim player/coach Josh Gowling.

Burr, aged 60, has had a management career for 18 years and his former clubs include Chester, Kidderminster Harriers, Southport and most recently Stafford Rangers.

Burr comes to the Bulls from his role as Senior Club Scout at League 1 Fleetwood Town.

Speaking to club’s website, Burr said: “Josh contacted me about getting involved and helping him out and I’m more than happy to do that. I’m really looking forward to it.

“I know how driven Josh is as a player, which is why when I bought him in at Kidderminster I made him captain.

“I know how much he wants to succeed as a manager and if I can help him in his first start to his managerial career then hopefully we can go on and do well for the football club.

“Josh has got to be his own man and make his own decisions, that’s what you do as a manager, but I’m here to help and guide him and I’m looking forward to it.”
